OK, heres my new project thread. i will begin where i left off before the big forum crash.
Both notches are done now and i bolted the axle back in and im going to cut whatever else i need to lay it out fully. i started triming out the fenders and cut the driveshaft tunnel out for clearance. tomorrow i am going to notch out the crossmembe. for the driveshaft to clear.

ok, sorry no new pics from tonight but i have some from yesterday.
yesterday we cut out the floor for the driveshaft and i started cutting out the fenders in the rear for the tires. then today we cut out the crossmember for the driveshaft and let it down lower, its laying a lot harder now but there is stil more cutting left.

heres all of yesterdays pictures



this kinda sucks but it wont be a problem

its a little lower now

you may not even need to dehump, that tire is smaller than mine. the most important thing i had to do was notch the lca mounts for the arm to travel farther, that is what i used to lay on before i got the spidles and did all of the extra work.

alright ive finally beenout there putting more time into it today. cut out the fenders and i measured the axle height from the ground with the axle all the way up into the notch and i will be able to fit a 245/35/20 with about 1/2 inch to spare so im excited about that. when i first did the notch i wasnt sure if i did it high enough to clear but now i know for sure. I pulled the front seats out and got the carpet moved out of the way, i was surprised at how much i had to cut for the driveshaft, i cut it even farther than before.
