Trimmed down the front.

Here's a pic of the frame shortened at the stock welds. I removed 27.325" between the wheels. I'm in the process of aligning the two pieces back together to be welded. You can see the section from the middle I removed on the floor.

The other side.

The front frame overlaps the rear section.

Here's a shot of the rear. The frame and shackles should fit under the body. We'll see, but looks like it'll work.

Measuring the modified wheelbase.

Looks pretty close. 95.25". I'll have someone help me next weekend just to besure it's the correct wheelbase, to tack it up and then it'll be welded back together.

95.25", Yeee-haawww. j/p.

Next, frame welding then I'll finish removing the body mounts.
