I know they are crude but this is not a show truck, I am building something that gives me an excuse to have a good time when I run to the home depot or such.

These were bolted to the inside of my frame rails with the 302 that I initially ran in the truck. I am going to weld these in today though since I think it will give me more strength and less flex.

I am assuming that the cross member is a necessity but if it is I can always add onto what I have here.

What do you guys think, will these be OK, I know how to weld, I have good penetration, they are solid. I even made some plug welds just for the heck of it.

I am not planning on getting rid of the truck so I am hoping these will be OK long term.

I will also post some pict. of my truck just in case some of you guys like old Ford trucks.

Wont let me upload a pict. of my truck, maybe the forum software dosent like Ford trucks
