    I just stumbled upon this and this is fantastic! Im really happy this is being updated? (right?) Also, is the download on the front page the most recent?

    Hey so I am able to make a moderate lift if youd like? I did it to the ibishu blackfoot before there was an actual mod for it, and I could give this a go if youd like. I could also port the roamer offroad bumpers for ya if youd like. I may possibly be able to add in the pickup hubs too (possibly) if you still need help with that

    I am in the process of updating it to modern suspension and powertrain in the thread I linked above, If you can help me sort this out that would be greatly appreciated. I currently own an 89' with a 4 inch lift and 33's if you need any reference for lift setup, a lift is one of the things this mod needs, there is a wip beta in the mod support thread above, I plan on updating the first post one once it can be driven again

    worked on this some more, rear suspension is still acting up, better but still bad. I started on the engine today
    351M(80-82)
    revs to 4400(where all factory data stops)
    States of tune
    2 barrel(140 HP)
    4 barrel HO (160 HP?)
    4 barrel tuned(Equivalent to upgraded intake,carb and exaust, 190-205 HP?)
    N20 is optional
    no forced induction or stronger block, this is not a performance motor.
    still working on it
    --- Post updated ---

    I have a running engine! Now to fix everything else.
    --- Post updated ---
    16 more days and it is the 3 year anniversary

    Just want to say it's not dead,@sjbphoto and I are working on the truck, got the front suspension working.
    I am almost done with this school year so I should be able to mod more soon.
    here's a list of what I want to try to finish to release an update in order of priority
    1. Engine tuning for 351M
    2. More transmissions
    3. JBeam improvements
    4. Configs
    5. Bugfixes

    Yes. The front suspension now articulates and steers nicely. We will continue to work on this as we can, but as stated before, at the moment, we are just a bit busy with finishing up school. Once summer rolls around, I should be able to work more on this.

    I don't think I really can right now, all ford broncos, and 4X4 F150/250s came with TTB so it had to be in there

    made NP435 granny gear trans and 4 barrel carb, also refined the engine so it makes the proper amount of power.

    not yet
    soon
    maybe in the next few weeks, I've attempted to tinker with it as much as possible
    I want to fix 4wd before the release unless enough people don't mind having to take it out of 4wd to prevent breaking it
