I'm loving this build cause I don't wait for months or weeks for updates. It's by the hour pretty much. Can't wait to see how it turns out

Got one side of the front axle apart and I survived the mother in law, so back to work.

The god awful bracketry the last guy welded on here is mocking me.

And then the other side:



Then pulled the gears, and that's as far as I got tonight.



Tomorrow, chop off the brackets and maybe set the truss.

These radius arm brackets are a PITA.

Have to chop them in pieces..wish I had a plasma cutter.



Still lots of grinding left. And the driver side remains, mocking me still.

Got the housing cleaned off, started to tack my truss.

Went to clamp down the p-side to run tacks down that side and snapped my cheap clamp. Will have to go buy a decent one tomorrow.

If you want to have nice things you have to keep the things you have nice.

Clayton arms.

Also using their truss/bracketry out back and their brackets up front with a TNT truss.
