Two weeks to go? Good luck. Why do these kind of projects always come down to the wire?
I figured if I could design 26" travel x 7ft wide A-arm suspensions why not some cool air ride for my tow rig? It'll be nice to have a tow rig instead of a tow pig. My papa smurf dodge did surprise a few people tho lol. It you don't thrash to the finish it'll never get done.

Loads of small fab work going into this dirtbag... Lot of late nights.
I keep on thinking I'd rather be working on the buggy...

1) is that the factory Ford fan on the Cummins hub?
2)what are you going to use for a radiator in your liquid to air intercooler?

Will be interesting to see how that front trailing arm works on the street. They tried it on monster trucks, but it was hard on the frame. Should ride great.

I can see that, all the structure in a monster truck is in the middle.
Front of the Ford frame is strong enough for leaf eyes, should be enough for some links.

I love this faro CMM , junkyard doesn't send floor shifter mount? Scan it, make a better one. We are moving along, fluids in most things in place. Time to spend a bunch of time under the dash taking care of the misc like bag gauges etc etc.
