Product Description

**This kit requires a S-10 2wd frame that is 108" wheelbase which is a Standard Cab Short Bed S-10 Pickup.

  • CODE504 branded Rear frame crossmember
  • Shock bar
  • CODE504 branded Camel hump crossmember
  • CODE504 branded Front box mount
  • Rear cab mount

  • Radiator support
  • Front cross brace for bumper brackets
  • Front running board mounts
  • Center running board mounts
  • Rear running board mounts
  • Rear box mounts
  • Detailed step-by-step instructions (with color pictures) and friendly, unlimited tech support!

Additional Information:


  • *S-10 Frame Not Included (Standard Cab Short Bed - 108")
  • We require that you swap out the 2WD Rear End with a 4WD Rear End from a 1982-2004 4WD S10 Pickup or 4WD Blazer. This is done so that the axle pads are located in the correct position and therefore do not need to be relocated. It will also center your wheels under the fenders of your Ford Truck.
  • The stock 1953-1956 Ford Short Box Wheelbase was 110".  In order to make the S-10 Frame 110" flip the leaf springs around from front to back because  the leaf spring has a 2" off set center pin.
  • We also recommend 3" longer A-Arms in the front in order to place the front tires out under the fenders appropriately.  You may purchase those A-Arms for $985.99.
