I would either move the box or change pitman arms. Axle placement looks good.

Do many people have to move the box? It looks like a huge PITA.

Update 1/25/12

Well, decided to update you guys on some minor things we've done lately.

(Sorry for the blurry pictures, the shop is dim and the camera doesn't focus very well in low light. :BangHead: )

We've gotten the axle cut and painted, going to get the gears set up this weekend.



We got new rotors and studs for the front, got that all assembled.


Got bushings in the leaf springs. And some custon U-Bolts made by White's Machine Shop in Union Gap.



Dad hacked off some of the engine support bracing to help the axle clear. Also got a new pitman arm and a bunch of new tierod ends.


Got the shackle mounts put on and the shackles painted.




We ordered some special high-steer arms. Got those painted. I'll get a picture of them later.

Lots of extra parts in the bed.
