1994 Mitsubishi Mighty Max - Weekend Warrior: STK TRUK Edition Part 7: Narrow the Frame for Clearance (Part 1)
Narrow The Frame For Clearance, Part One.
While sitting in the shop one day, working on what was supposed to be a quick garage build, Steve told me the truck needed to be Z'd, and since we were going to be cutting the front frame clip off, we might as well narrow it a few inches to help stuff those 20-inch rims. Once the frame was stripped of the wires, brake lines, and the motor itself, it came out pretty quick and easy. Once it was out, Steve actually had it narrowed in less than 10 minutes, which was the easy part. Once the frame was narrowed, the motor mounts needed to be moved, in order to bolt the motor back in place. Also, in order to ensure we cleared the stock hood, we lowered the motor mounts. Check out what we did below.
