This will be a great combo. One of a kind. Awesome! I can say definitely that I had a part in this coming to life.

I helped load the gem bits to @dogfishlake’s truck. 🤣

Finishing up the 81 40 1hz forty. Then I will get the front axel mounted and engine set. Then it will be transported to @ddelong6767 to finish. The hope is to get it into sema.

The 70 series front axle you used has the same suspension as an 80 series but narrower? Any differences between the two? What is the wms of the 70 series axle?

I plans to do the same thing on my 45 but I was going to narrow and 80 from axle.

Nice work!

Hydroboost for the win. Can that oil filter be relocated? It looks pretty inconvenient where it is. Do you have engine mounts done yet?

I have been thinking through this same issue with fuel filter. I have been considering using the Ford oil filter racing adapter. It redirects the filter 90 degrees, so I think you could aim the oil filter back under the compressor.

Are the front spring bucket mounts any different that the 80 series mounts? Do they hold the spring out farther from the frame?

Thank you for paving the way for my build :D
Did you convert the front axle to 6 stud?
Is there any interference between the steering box [looks to be 60 series?] and the panhard rod?
Lastly, do you think there would be any issue with flipping the panhard rod left to right and installing it 'backwards' for a RHD rig?
