Once we modified the back of the cab, we were able to lower it further down onto the lighting chassis.






Our next point of interference came in the front, where the 1969 inner fender wells seemed to interfere with the upper control arm mounts on the Lightning. We cut some simple notches in the inner fenders, and the cab and landed on the '02 chassis. The cab mounts are not in the exact same position, but they were close! We cut the front core supports off the Lightning frame, with anticipation of making our own core support and bumper mounts later.

It is very cool to see someone else attempting the same build. When I started mine back in Sept. of 2011 I couldn't find anyone who had attempted this swap and this is the first I've seen of anyone going for it other than me. Looking forward to see how you guys go about it. The Lightning is the truck I would have liked to start with but I couldn't pass up the deal on the one I got. Here is my build thread fordification.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=...61306&st=0&sk=t&sd=a You guys don't look like you need the help but feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Love the build!

Thanks
FoPAR

I'm sure I will.... It's a really good idea... (I think so anyway lol) so what is the plan for the bed? Are you going to notch it like I did or bring the floor of the bed up? Also was wondering what the wheel base was on the Lightning and if you will have to shorten the frame to make the gap look right between the cab & bed?


Thanks
