Although Shorty won't hit the road the minute the motor and trans combo is in place, this install will help out in the long run. By installing the motor and trans and measuring for a new driveshaft, we will be able to mock everything up, and make sure all is kosher. Waiting until everything is in paint and then going through this process isn't exactly the best way to go about building custom trucks. Follow along as we drop this motor and trans into Project Get Shorty.
