Crashzx6r I have also started mock up on center console and all my wiring and dash lay out has changed since I simplifed them. I'm now running a painless rocker box and few relays.

Crashzx6r Working on getting seats mounted and front half of tubing done. I may be swapping motor for a 402 bigblock with 12:1 compression fully built to beat on. It's hard to turn down the deal and I'll have way more fun pinning 450hp much less the torque it makes. Looks like I'll be building up the drive train some too. I also have almost bought all the parts I need to finish building the rear d60 to put it in after the stretch.

Thanks man I been trying to get more done and more updates but been very busy. My motor mounts are poly performance bolt in to frame. I suggest three options for location. One that's obvious is radiator clearance with that said it depends on what you plan to do for drive shafts I mounted my engine just behind center of axle and raised it up 2 inches. They make swap kits that make it all very easy to do just bolt in and minor fab. I don't have access to higher end fab tools like I use at work so at home I sometimes cut corners on making stuff pretty. For instance rather than go back and forth to metal brake and make the mounts I wanted for radiator I made square tube frame to tie In grill and fenders that radiator hangs from and sits on rubber isolator on square tube that fits bottom of griffin. When I mounted it I made sure I
Could run electric fan and belt driven while allowing room for shroud.
I would set your motor back a tad but keeping an eye on drive line lengths. Ill try and get some pictures for you soon.

I know it's actually starting to come together.
I'm trying to round up the rest of my materials to build cage and get it going.

I gotta get my trans mounted and case then I can finish plumbing. I plan to get fuel cell buttoned up once I cut the floor and drop it 8 inches or so should make enough room for a cooler mount!

Crashzx6r Came out of a 79 f250 it's 4.11 with trac lock, full float. Going full width and using same up front.

BlackTJ98 Where did you source your d60 (what model vehicle is it taken from)? Did you have to shorten its width? Going 8 lug?

Crashzx6r The pace of the build is changed. Gonna be starting cage work and mounting on the 700r4 and np205 then ill be working on the rear d60 I have. Gonna try like hell to find a front d60 in my price range by winter.

Going to also be changing seats to Corbeau Baja ss seats and 5 points. The cage will be pretty involved so ill try to do step by step.
I will be using 1 3/4 .120 wall Dom tubing
