Fitting the Body - Aug 27, 2006

I took the body off the chassis it came on and got it on it's new home for a test fit to see where to fab the body mounts.
Upon first look I find it's going to be a bit of a challenge to make it work. If I put the grill/rad. shell on the front crossmember the wheels sit to far back in the openings as you can see in the first pic.
In the second pic I have moved the cab back to center the wheel in the fender, but now the radiator and fan want to occupy the same space and the frame rails stick to far out the front. I think I will go back to the first location of the cab and open up the wheel opening by recontouring the opening. This will save having to relocate the radiator, fan, alternator and power steering gear.
The tires on there now are 36" Super Swamper TSL's I think it will get some 40's to fill the opening more.
