Welcome! What are you going to be running for a drive train in it (motor/trans/transfer case)?

Must be a Florida truck.
Looks like a great design for straight line mud bogs.
Nice build, can't wait to see how it does with a drivetrain.

What are you using for the driveshafts? That looks like it'll have some serious angles once all put together.

What brakes are you going to run? Pinion brakes?

yea my cusin works for advanced driveline here in florida so the angles werent a problem and i clocked the 208 down so the front shaft would be at a better angle and it has all 1410 u joints. and as far as the brakes im using a pinion brake way cheaper than buying the disk brake kit for the axles and stops real good
