So you're moving the cab forward to get rid of the underbite look of the frame, but you're keeping the motor in the location that it's in?...increasing the gap between the front of the block and the grille? interesting. I was sitting here thinking, 'why not just chop the front of the frame off." But I see you want to add a winch.

And the frame is needed to mount the steering gear to also.

It's pretty much still an idea. If everything goes well this weekend I can have the cab moved forward and the bed sitting behind the cab ready to build a rear frame section.

The same thing goes through my mind every time I look at this or The Flop project.

I dig the jeep logo on the tailgate. It says "I'm here to be classy but I also like to party". Looks dope.
