Are you going to replace any of the OEM drivetrain components, besides the axles? Also, what are you going to do with that tailgate?

300 is staying, getting rid of the trans and tcase, going to an np435 and a 203/205 doubler.

cut a section out of it so it fits. i will prob make it swing to the side rather than drop down like a normal tailgate.

haha, the back support tube for that cage isnt even tacked in, just wedged in there. it should hold, the curbs arent going to knock it loose.

i dont have any pictures of the dovetail, and im in CT for the next week or so. but it was pretty easy. i cut out the inner fender wells. marked at the rear how far in i wanted to move em. decided where to start the taper (right where the floor kicks up). i drew a straight line that connected the start to the new location of the bedsides. i then made 2 more cuts, one along that line, and one parallel with the bedsides, so i took a wedge shape out of the floor. i tried to push the sides in, but it didnt want to move that much. so we sawzalled a wedge out of the top of the bedrail right where the taper starts, and they pulled right in. right now, the sides are just tacked on. I am going to start finishing that in 2 months or so. at the same time, i also have to cut out more of the floor to fit the taller kick ups of the new frame. the body is just on there temp, once its on the final body mounts, it should be 4-6" lower. the axles and frame are at the correct ride height.

what I did to the rear panels is called a dovetail. plug ugly asked about, and i told him what i did. you just have to scroll up a bit. i dont have any pictures of it right now, but i can get some later.

i used 1.75" x .120" EW for the cage

2.0" x .120" EW for the frame backhalf

0.875" x .156" DOM for link mounts

1.0" x .125" DOM for link mounts
