ok here is my new challenge.....

floor.


floor in cab perfect.


floor on frame stock KH tranny NOt soo muchh..


Floor up cab happy, tranny happy, but electronics not happy..


move tranny backwards, cab is very happy..electronics very happy..Headache rack? not happy...







I need help guys, anyone know a good tranny I could use that will go absolutely
below the rails? I could cut the floor n make the stock tranny work, but then that
means the battery tray will be of no use and everything is gonna be flying around
inside there not cool

if anyone knwos a good tranny alternative please let me know :) thank you in advance :)

ok guys welp took some advice :) cut down the floor n flipped, works like a charm :)





I moved the front wheels up a bit, tilted the mount there now I have to modify that cross member to put a bolt n nut instead of screw to hold the mount in that position giving me a little bit more room, what happened b4 is I couldnt mount the little side step, the wheel was a little bit too bad it would hit the side step when turning very bad, so now moved up works greatt!



and here is what she looks like with a trailer!






more to come soon :)

here is the chain rack im putting together, Still needs detailing and skinning but its taking shape :)









I need to get the rack over the tranny will do do by adding height to the rack as the real one has
its got a pretty thick floor.
