So here's a clever part... obviously the back driveshaft needs to be longer because of the stretch.. normally we'd have to almost finish the build and actually measure it. With the 3D CAD approach, the output of the transmission is measured from the old frame, and the position of the axle is measured on the new frame, and the two are overlaid on top of each other and the length can be measured. In reality, these two points are currently in completely different rooms and would be impossible to measure.

Very cool build! As a Mech. Eng. student I can really appreciate all the CAD work going into this, sure is cool to be able to model all the suspension/drivetrain before actually setting it all into place. Subbed for sure

Now this looks like progress! Beginning to align the back wall of the cabin! Once aligned, weld everything and can set the bed on the frame too and get the body mounts set in the correct location so the body lines are perfect... can't wait to see the body together!

It is for the vent that is usually in the tailgate to vent the cabin.

Not sure what you mean by that??
But the aftermarket industry in the Gulf is usually a tin shed full of Pakistani labourers, so finding somebody with a balancing machine isn't all that easy..

It's not as easy as you might think. Temperatures are in the 125F range with 80+% humidities - it's not easy money that's for sure.
