That has yet to be decided actually....she's sitting way taller than I anticipated, but it doesnt have much weight on the springs yet. I was hoping for a 36 originally, but from the looks of it, she can take alot larger one. Im trying to keep it more driveable since I already have a trail rig yanno.

I worked a lil bit last night and got the mounts mocked up in the frame. All I need to do now is make the bottom gussets fit and burn um in.

I finished the motor mounts yesterday and bolted them in place. I also modded a 79 Bronco transfer case mount and welded it in also. I started making the tranny crossmember but I ran out of tubing.

Only 2 more years to go before your gut starts overlapping the front of your pants, your hair either falls out or turns gray, your joints all start hurting when the wheather changes & you fart when you pee.

You ARE old. You're a year older than me. Actually, only 6 months older, but older nonetheless...
