Next up is adding a front sway bar. Had to grind off a small portion of the powder coating and galvanize from the chassis for dad to weld on the new mounts. Figured I should try out my lift.

Yeah seriously I can't tell if they're wearing gloves to keep their hands clean or to not dirty up the engine!

Can you please post a photo showing exactly how much you had to trim off the transmission neck to fit the adaptor?

Thanks,

Paul.

Thanks Jason, I keep mats down all the time and just rolled one up to put the engine in. They work great at protecting the floor.

Unfortunately the Pinarello has been a little neglected since I started this project!

Off to the exhaust shop

Final got around to doing a little more work on the truck with dad. We installed the mid crossmember, rear anti roll bar, cradle for fuel tank and rear tub. All this was temporally added so we could figure out the best way to run the new custom stainless exhaust. More pics to follow.
