    Gives me a starting point, and if it allows me to get a setup that I like then it is perfect.
    Thank you for taking the time!

    Thought I would spend some time on the brake lines. Progressive set up the under cab mount for a 7" vacuum booster, but I decided to go with a hydroboost so I cut out the mount and had a modified one water jetted out and moved the location a little to take advantage of the frame cut out.

    Egoman: SpaceCadet has the accurate measurements. I was close, but no cigar...

    Thank you for the time and the measurements. I have a small amount of stuff to complete before I start my build thread in earnest.

    I see where one of my measurements was off(B). I measured from the inside of my frame rails. After studying the picture of the factory frame rail...big difference.

    Been a while for updates.
    Chassis is ready to have the cab mounted and trial fit everything.
    I had a couple renderings done to get an idea of wheels, colors and grill.
    Here is what I have so far:Name:  proof1.jpg

    Finally kissed the cab to the chassis. Time for firewall work. I cut out the small hump and will recess it about 3".Name:  20181029_182744.jpg

    Well, I am working with Bob at Progressive. They made an honest mistake and my wheelbase is 110", not 114". The step in the picture is pushed up to the cab. The fender and step still need to be moved rearward another 1".
    I had a good conversation with Bob and worked on putting everything on the front to make sure it all mounted together. Fit great. The side rails to the rear are just short 4". Extending the frame will be the easy part. It's the torque tube that will be the pain. It will take about a month with the turn around times on shipping to be back on pace.

    Bob and I worked things out (great guy to deal with!)
    I have the chassis on the frame machine. The front was just a little off so we pulled it level and now adding in some cross members. Next, we are getting the frame set up for a little lengthening in the rear.

    Are those 19" wheels on the rear?

    Yes, 19" in the rear and 18" up front. I think the front need to be 19" too or more sidewall.

    I just have used/mismatched mock up tires on mine and the 18 fronts with more sidewall look way better than the lower profile 19 on the rear. I intend to change the rears to a higher profile on the rear. Btw, your build is looking very nice.

    I agree. More sidewall the better on the 18". I'm going to try a larger tire on the rear and see what she looks like or go to an 18" rear too.

    Killer truck. Love the dash swap. Chassis is pretty drool worthy as well.

    Here we go. Bob(Progressive) sent me some matching 2"x6" frame rail so I could extend the chassis. Today we built the inner sleeves to make sure that the extension will probably be the strongest part of the frame. Tomorrow we should have this completed, then torque tube comes out to get lengthened at Gamel Street Rods.Name:  IMG_5252.JPG
