Have you thought about going with Moab fab. Good price difference and they can cut it where you want it.

Wow those are cheap! And from the looks of a few pirate threads, really nice quality cut to whatever spec is needed.

Thanks!

Axle breakdown a bit more, and grinding away the old frame brackets. What a pain in the ***.





Lunch, then finish up the frame side, then the axle and truss is going to SammyG for welding

Also the frame is not resting on the tires in the back, they are just there for safety

Finished the grinding the frame side brackets and smoothing it down, did a little work on the axle but I need a torch for some of these brackets.



Mocked some goodies up on the floor, just for kicks.



Now, is there a good distance from the skid I should weld these on? Cause the only issue I can see is frame/tub interference of links at full bump.



Yes I sawzalled my exhaust....

Sammy did an awesome job on the Artec Truss! 100% welded up. And I designed some light mounts for his 47 Flatty.
