Wow! Ours are similar! Even the same color!! I sat mine on a Chevy frame and didn't like how hi it sat either. That's why I built my frame. The center section where the cab goes is a 10" drop from the rest of the frame.

Yours is looking sweet!!!

It's crazy because I envisioned my frame almost exactly like you built yours. However I plan on 2x6 for the lower belly frame rail so that I can channel the body 4'' and have the left over 2'' for the sliders. No subframe needed for the skid that way. The kick ups will be made with 2x4 tube. I planned on a 12''-14'' kick up using a 4 link and coil set up.

Looks awesome! I've been haunted at night by a ratrod4x4 build. Now that I finally found one I think I'm hooked.

I made a big order from Ruff Stuff, 7/8'' heims, spacers, link tabs, etc. I have the frame rails squared, gusseted, and end crossmembers in. It is tacked to the chassis table and will be getting the drive train mounted as soon as I can get a 205 here.
