The rules for 03s an newer here say - aluminum cradle must stay in place and no welding parts to the frame an this set up is fully bolted to the frame and aluminum cradle using stock bolts and bolt locations. I'm sure they will have something to say about it but its to the rules haha ;D

promotoers need to understand it takes very little frame side welding to make one of these 'legit', while this idea is creative, show me a promotor that doesn't want you to weld about 24" but will let you hang feet of 6" c channel cut to angles and welded and tied into the factory bolt/pins?
as a driver yea its cool as a tech guy...i'd write my rules intelligently enough to eliminate this and as a salesman/builder of these era frames i know how much work on is done right but that above adds about another 5 hours and is wasted time to appease a rule that was never intended to be built this way when the box ford cradle swap is really the easiest part of the retro fit process

i will agree with jimmy on how easy it is to fit an 80's cradle into one of these.. i was like most and thought man this is gunna be a major b...h to do.. but once i actually started a jack and couple of jack stands and a torch made the process actually rather simple.. had mine cut out of the old frame and put in the 03 frame and complely welded up in less than two hours.
