i cut all the stock core support out and used 1 1/2 tubing to rebuild the fender mounts and radiator... for the ifs box i plated each side of the frame with 3/8 plate which may be overkill but i dont worry about it, also went with a trail gear hydro assist setup, which is super slow since i went with the bigger ram, if you want speed get the smaller ram...thats my next change

well the last few days i have spent re-wiring this thing, ever since i did the 4.0 swap ive had both complete harnesses in this thing and sorta just spliced together... i started by removing all the stock 2.9 wiring for everything, lights, dash, gauges so all i had left was the 4.0 harness under the hood, then i took and eliminated all the lights and iother plugs not needed off the harness .... fyi, its a pita so last night i got pretty much done, havnt finished wiring tail lights or rock lights but went and tested it to make sure it was still charging and what not.. and tried to catch the full moon

ill post the pic i have, you cant see much tho, in the picture the primered tube running from inner fender to inner fender is welded at those points and then i have a verticle support from the fram rails up, and at that same point on each side i have one more brace thats about a 45 degree angle that runs back to the frame by the coil buckets.. i just used little tabs to remount the grill and the radiator, o also for the radiator i welded in a suare tube between the inner frame rails to set the hight right with the fan on the engine.... hope that helps

oops no pic... one other thing, by welding the inner fender to that cross bar for the radiator which has the supports welded down to the frame, you need to solid mount the rest of your body, the front will have no body flex, it sorta becomes solid with the frame in a sense, or rubber mount your new front support.
