40ChevyJim From the research that I have found, it appears to be be a very good option. As long as it is installed with everything being level, starting with the frame, then it is almost a bolt on. It looks like you have to fab a couple of mounts, depending on your application, but outside of that it looks like a much more affordable solution. I am in the same boat. Money is money! Parts are cheap and easily obtainable and you end up with a power rack, and the steering is in the right place! From what I see, it sure looks like the way to go. Good luck with your project and thanks. Sometimes you just need to bounce your ideas around!

matts37chev we were looking at that two days ago at work
a co-workers friend has a complete rotor2rotor for a 100 bucks
so we were discussing that vs 2000+ for a heits mustang 2
it looks pretty straight forward,just have to get the geometry correct when you hang it

Deuce I am considering doing the same IFS swap into a 1948 F1 Ford pickup.

While researching the swap online I came across these

I realize that a F1 Ford is NOT a 40 Chevy ... but you might find the info interesting.
And a Jaguar XJ6 wheel bolt pattern is the same as Chevrolet ( 5 on 4.75 ).

Jag XJ6 IFS install on 40's Chevy

Anybody out there have any info on this install? I understand it is almost a straight bolt in. I can get my hands on one, hub to hub, for a whole lot less than an MII. Replacement parts are relatively inexpensive. Any help would be appreciated!
