Been super busy fabbing the front suspension (cycles 13-1/2 ), modifying the complete steering system for the 5in. forward and slightly cocked and widened front end for the coilovers I finally bought. I am not done but here is some pics of the cockpit and crossmembers for the tranny and seats, the floor/firewall I still have to fabricate. Since the 5.7 is nine inches longer than the 4.3 but on the same motor mount position, the only thing I didn't have to make is the motor mounts. The seats/steering stem are all mounted farther back in the cab because the firewall will be about completely modified for the motor's exaust to clear the steering stem. I gotta say, I can't wait to finish and drive this thing
