Subframe Conversion Pt.1

After countless hours of rigid driving and wincing at every bump, the time to change the front suspension has came. The following photos are the very beginning of what is going to be a fun and gratifying learning experience. So far we have stripped the subframe of all unneccessary brackets, hardware, and of course the old lines. We have taken off the old A arms and replaced them with some beefier tubulars. New rotors are being installed and the front sheet metal of the old pickup is being stripped. And to dress it up a little bit, a slightly shinier grill will be installed!!
