Inner frame rails are welded in along with the center brace and front drive shaft loop. The trans tail shaft will fit thru the loop should I have to remove the trans.

The brake booster is in as well as the brake pedal assembly. I'm going to replace the threaded linkage rod with a 5/8 piece of bar stock which I'll thread on both ends.

Pan hard bar is in....just have to weld the bracket to the axle.

Default First radius Rod In

OI....I do have that o-ringed oil fill cap in my valley pan.

I got the first radius rod in tonight. I borrowed the mag base drill from the shop with an end mill and it drilled a perfect hole. Put it right in the center of the bottom rail (cab rail). If you remember I had longer radius rod made from Pete & Jakes because they looked much better tied in near the z. These are 10 or 11" longer and the included a stiffener in the center which looks cool

I have my caster set at 6 degrees on that side.....I might have to adjust as I install the other and dial it in.

I read somewhere....I think on the HAMB that the passenger side caster should be greater to compensate for the crown in the road. Should I do that or should i make em both the same.
