The Roadster Shop has just unveiled its latest chassis for vintage Ford trucks, allowing owners to easily get a modern suspension under their pickup for more capable off-road action.

The front axle is a high pinion Dana 44, while the rear is a Dana60, also a high pinion. Both axles come with shafts, gears, and Tru-Trac differentials.
The frame also features a number of bolt-on engine mount options that can fit anything from small-block Ford and Coyote engines, as well as LS and LT engines for you heathens.

In addition to the beautiful craftsmanship of the frame itself, the kit also comes loaded with Fox shocks and Currie enterprises front and rear axle assemblies.
The complete RS4 chassis is just $39,995, and all you need to do is plop your drivetrain in the chassis, hook up a bunch of wires, slap a body on it, and you’re good to go. Simple!
