Would rate the difficulty of this swap at about 6 on a scale of ten. Had to remove 13" from frame length so Ackerman angle will have to be tweaked but no body to frame mount problems of any degree of difficulty. Our fiberglass guy wanted to have the body while he repaired the VERY shabby removable top so finished pics will come later. Donor is a 2000 Tahoe 4wd with the LT1 engine. Everything is black so you will have to look close to see the body to frame mount brackets. The rear center mount is on the angled square tubing with the 4x4 wood block under the plywood parts table. Note the top 4 link has a dogleg to give extra tire clearance; clever idea.

Those torsion bars make for a very clean-looking front suspension- - - - -no huge spring towers or strut columns cluttering things up!
