    I bought this frame from "powerstroken" about a year ago. Just now finding the time and money to finish it. My fellow crawlers have planned a trip to Harlan for the Bronco Fall Crawl Oct. 12 so I am shooting for completion in time for the trip. Wish me luck! It will be receiving a fresh 454 aspirated by propane, TH350/203/205 combo, FOA coilovers front, FOX air shocks rear, 3 link front to Dana 60, 4 link rear to 14 bolt, hydro steer, recentered H1's on 42" IROKS. Here are some pics thus far. Truggy Pics 006.jpg
    Gutted the dashboard. Gonna start fresh.

    Couldn't have progress held up so I did some welding for you today. Front clip is welded up and ready to start hanging drivetrain now.

    The 203/205 doubler kit from NorthwestFab came today so you know I had to install it tonight. Now I can put all the drivetrain together and place it in the frame.

    We got the motor/tranny/doubler mounts made today. Making a crossmember for a doubler is labor intensive, but it is coming together!

    Thanks. Front looks good. I have a feeling I will be doing that soon. I have been abusing the 4.3 and it is getting tired.

    Front end almost completed, still looking for some SRW front hubs if anybody has any or wants to swap for the extra width.

    Seat brackets tied into the frame. Still have to make some brackets to mount harness to, but you get the picture.

    Not much looked like it has happened until just recently even though he has been putting in some late nights. Winch, exhaust, driveshafts, radiator, coolers, accessories, dash, harnesses, propane and starting on wiring. It's coming along and looking good.

    What are you running for a mixer with all those ponies now? Estimated hp and torque (stock heads)?

    Sorry. Been away from the computer. The mixer is a Impco 425. Don't know how much horsepower she has. Might figure it out soon. I will post specs when we get the calculations done.
