    Getting back on the truck build , hope to have it running next week , doing lots of little things that need to be done before starting
    also I added another piece to the dashboard to hold the switchs, will also install warning and blinker lights in that piece, I want the dashboard to be as clean as possible, nothing on it !

    Good idea. I am concerned with the lack of support also.
    Is that another brace I see in your second photo down above the suspension arm?

    Did you remove the bar behind the seats or just move it up along with the angled brackets? Or is it still in the same place just can't see it behind those seats? Which look very comfy for long trips by the way.

    yep I cut it out , never like the look of the cross bar and with it removed I moved the seats back almost 2 inches and that helped a lot in giving extra leg room. my seat belts have a shoulder strap that will mount right where I removed the cross bar. Herb

    Took a sharpie and marked off 1 inch squares on the firewall , using a 2 inch 3m pad in my drill press , I tried it on the back side first to make sure I was happy with it. Have to admit it I stole the idea to do the engine turning form Tom !

    Herb,

    Are the top sections of the seats now behind the roll cage frame? And, if so, are you certain they will fit inside the body? I'm asking as I don't know how close the roll bar is to the inside of the back of the cab.

    Herb,
    We mechanical engineers call that structure "Statically Indeterminate" . Here's a wiki on the subject. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statically_indeterminate

    Do you have plans to replace it somewhere else maybe or eliminate it?

    Nice seats by the way!
