Welcome o the site.It may be best to lay out what you have and build from there. When I built my frame I mocked it up out of wood. I used 2x4s with plywood plates on either side of the 2x4s

No such thing as "plans" for a custom build like that. Gonna have to put in the work...

Click on my signature where it says Tetanus Tornado and you can see my mock up wooden frame in the pics in the pics in the images in the build thread.

Thanks Kenny
your kick up on the rear z is it around 16 in and what degree 60 or 22.5
also the frt z I've layed mine out off a set of plans but my rear is only 10 in I don't think that's enough
thanks for the help rick

It's been so long since I did it I can't remember. I think it was 45 degrees. There are pics of it in steel in the thread. I built it to fit the coil overs. I should have mounted the shocks lower on the rear axle so that the rear frame rails didn't have to be as high. I would have ended up with more depth in the bed.
