It just makes it a lot easier and faster . When there's a will, there's a way, though.

oh yeah i agree 100%. i have laid on my back for countless hours with hot metal, sparks, and welding slag falling on me. having a lift would be sweet! but it shouldnt discourage any one who want to take on a project like this.

Yeah and yours is an awesome one-off build, much more modifications, my hats off to you sir. If you get the PTE 88 will get about 900hp...just a little more $$$ but will get you in the 7-8 secs. We need sponsors, lol!

Well, your car creates a conflict, haha. You have Chevy parts in a Ford, so...a performance company who normally sponsors Fords might have a hard time justifying it

31x12x3 and 3" in/out. Now the much criticized bumper will do it's work.
