here is a pic of how I lifted mine with an engine hoise, you could easily adapt that theory to a gantry
You have a good point, my rear cab corners are a little rusty. didnt think the weight would be that much to distort. good looking out.

The rears are roughly 1.5" off on backspace, the fronts are closer but about .5" off. That would be some big spacers.

At least comparing them to the Revolver.

Front: 245/40--ZR 19-----8" wheel-----Wheel has 4 inch backspace

Rear: 245/45ZR 20----8.5" wheel-----Wheel has 4 inch backspace

J, is the parking brake bar suppose to fit in the hole on the frame wing right where the front cab mount goes? Right now the body eating on that and is not able to sit flush on to the frame. Not sure if I need to remove it, or just res
Adjust it more.

If you're talking about the factory parking brake assembly, it won't clear. Give Evan a call, he said that Lokar makes a cable adapter.

Re: Fatman, TCI, or Scotts IFS/Chassis on 49 AD

For my 51 on a TCI chassis I used a generic AC Delco Park brake pedal with Wilwood cables at the rear and a custom Control Cables front cable to connect it all.

Thanks you guys. Cut it out yesterday, also trimmed the inner fender wells now it sits flush. Just have to drill out the shackles to fit the enlarged bolts.
