1 ) The Jag frame is way different than the F-1 ... but the front suspension cradle fits.

2 ) The Jag rear end is independent

3 ) A 1978 F150 4x2 frame is not much of a improvement over the 49 frame IMHO. It is also too wide ... and the track width is way off. Depending on which model F150 it is ... the wheelbase could be too long also.

4 ) IF the F150 is ready for the scrap heap ... why invest time and $$$ into trying to put it under a F-1 ???
