Thanks, you guys hooked me up with the suicide door kit and bear claw latches. You guys were getting yanked around by your vendor on the latch install kit so after a couple weeks you finally custom made them yourselves.

I welded 2x4 in the stock frame and then cut off what hung down. That was about 2" or so. Body mounts are still in the stock locations.

It's not part of the Z and it's not really a body drop either since the body hasn't moved from it's stock location. It's just a modified frame.

i like the touch of the fenders nice work on that and boxing in the back of the fender is slick to but why did you do all that work with the tailgate when you could have just got one like that at the yard cause i was gonna do that same idea then came to find out they produced gates like that lol

very nice. I was wondering on the fenders as well. then I realized why you did it. I like it alot, that's one thing that pisses me off about my 73, the rear is tucking half of the axle hub, but the front is about 1" over the lugs, and it is flat on the rockers. my question is why did you make the tailgate like that when you can get one that comes like that stock? I also dig the inner fenders. I was thinking of redoing mine exactly like that since I now don't care so much for the way I did mine. either way looks great man, can't wait to see what's next with it

The gates I have seen are not spaced all the way across. They are centerd and spaced out but don't go across the whole gate. Couldn' find a real pic but they are like this..

I see. that's cool, I understand sometimes they just don't make the part you want so sometimes you gotta make it yourself. what's in store for it paint wise? also what size wheels are those on what size tire?

To move my upper arms I used the brackets from SD. For the lowers I modified the stock crossmember to move my lowers to match the uppers.
