dablack -- I didnt know that about the explorer, but the brackets that I am getting, allows me to bolt up any FN10 or MN12 rear suspension. No fabrication on my part, just have to square it up and weld it all together. Are the Explorer IRS the exact same as the 10's and 12's, I bet they are not.
I have lurked on the fordification site, but I stick to FTE, mainly the bump side forum. That is where I got the idea to put the panther suspension on my truck, and well, I did some part searching and found the motor mounts. I already had the motor and trans.
the Great Obucina -- Not my garage, a friend of mine was stationed there, that is where his wife is from, hence the flag next to ours.
Just a quick up date. I have had some time away from the truck. Working on my house and driving cross country. I have bought some parts such as: 1970 Stang fuel tank, rear suspension mount brackets, new cab mounts, adjustable clutch setup, cobra hubs and caliper brackets. I will also be getting a ididit tilt steering column, hurst shifter. that should keep me busy for a while. Thats a short list of the big items, there are many little parts in between that im sure I will need to get.
I am working on the trans cross member, and making a single clutch brake pedal assembly from a 72 F100 and a 2004 Mach1 assemblies.
Should I keep posting pics???
