There is nothing wrong with a stitch weld, those look like crap but I would not hate on stitch welding itself

I don't really think anyone was really hating on stitch welds themselves.

More like hating on a supposed professional company even letting that get out the door to a customer..those welds had to of passed through several people's hands before being packaged and shipped AND anyone can clearly see the poor quality.

I personaly would of welded it 100% through for the fact that peice is designed for a purpose to take ALOT of stress and beatings.

If i was concerned about warping the 3/16" plate..thats what manufacturing Jigs are for..put it all in the Jig..weld it all up..let cool in the Jig and no warpage in end result.

You can also stitch weld it until it is completely welded through.

Bottom line is this came from a supposed 'Professional Company" and a poor product got passed many eyes and hands and still got out the door.

For the sake of the companies reputation and people depending on there quality i would hope they resolved this issue and upped their standards

To be fair, I've abused them pretty good for a beginner wheeler: out of mud multiple times, an 18 km flat tow and I've been pulled out of some ruts where my axles and diffs were sitting on the ground, but my wheels were just spinning, with no contact on the ground. I'm knocking on wood here, but they haven't let me down.
