Default 56 p/u getting upgrades !

I have decided to go ahead and start doing some upgrades to my 56 truck. Getting ready to get rid of the original straight axle for an IFS set up. Already have it scheduled to take it to the fabricator's Rod shop next week. Next will be the 60 year old original rear end replaced with a new 9" after that. Then I should be able to take full benefit of the new 6.2 LS-3 550hp and keep it hopefully between the ditches without worrying to much about scattering 60 year old rear end parts down the road.

It actually came with the truck when I bought it. It is the Mustang 11 type and I think this particular one may be a TCI, but not certain of that yet. I know its all new with Spindles Disc brakes and all. Also got a new in the box power window kit and under bed aluminum fuel tank with all hard ware and a 9 " nodular rear axle with 4 link set up. All came with the truck so I plan to use all of it that I can.
