yay progress...

so i did my SYE and tucked my transfercase as far up as i could without cutting floors. the top of the shifter plate actually comes through the floorboard a little




and also yesterday i began mockup and some welding of my rear crossmember...
the bottom of the crossmember is flush with the bottom of the frame rails


i dont seem to have any pictures of any of the welding i did or any of the supports i made.

but for a quick update on whats being used.

crossmember is a 2x2x.250, i decided against my original idea of using 2x6x.250 because it was just uneeded weight. so instead i will be building a type of gusset that will add some more rigidness to the crossmember.

and the frame plates im using will be .250. and i will be doing a "clamp" style mounting. (similar to the way Rustys mounts there front crossmember for the long arm kit)

also, today i will start building my rear shock hoop, and maybe start on my truss for the 8.8
