Finally got the some new parts in steering and trac bar heims. Cut as much off the 14 as possible it hangs down but it is smooth.

So wow what a day. These is not going to be a simple 1 ton swap, the front axel was suppost to be a bolt in app with the tnt truss. The guy that had it before me told me the upper mount was for a rock krawler joint and it wasnt. So i had to order a new one of those from tnt $250. Also the guy welded the coil retainers way to far forward and if i run the rk trac bar and tnt trac mount my tb is going to be about a 2 foot shorter. From everything i have read the trac bar being short than the drag link is not good and u should get them as close in length and as parallel as possible. Havent had a chance to cycle the suspention but from the looks of it with the way the lower control arm mounts are the control arms well come in contact with the frame. My personal opinion if your doing these swap and planning to run the tnt truss dont get the trac bar bracket. Other than that its a great truss

Moved my coil retainers back as far as the would go so im going to have about 3.5 of stretch in the front. built the lower tb bracket, was by far the hardest part of the build but in the end it came out perfect. Also got the 14 done other than replacing the brakes. I was worried the rk truss wouldnt fit but it when right on.
