Anyone have pics of the K Frames out of following vehicles - EF-EL, AU & BA?

Any decent pics of these appreciated, thanks

Trying to figure out best way to get one of these later K Frames bolted into an E series :)

For a start, AU's and BA's don't have Kframes. They have 2 separate X Members.

You might just get the EF/EL one to fit and EA/EB/ED as the front tie rail is the same and so it might line up with the existing bolts?

The EF/EL K frame is a direct bolt in for the EB/ED.

The AU onwards has been done once that I know of and required a MAJOR cut and shut of the front chassis rails etc.

Not a DIY job.

I love it when people go the next step and prove the impossible possible.

Will go find the thread for myself, as I also would like this as an option.

I just checked the build thread out, and the work he is doing looks great. Interesting to see how he is mixing the K Frame parts, and building the spacers.

Certainly opens additional modding possibilities for my Wagon.
