Getting serious! Better order a welder, or do you guys have a shop on base like the guys over here?

Artec 4 link frame brackets, upper truss brackets, lower 10degree axle, and a truss bridge. I'm thinking of going 60amp on the breaker and cord. I know its over kill but you never know.

Yah I hear yah, but the plugs change as amperage changes and the breaker box has unused 50amp breaker already in there for me. Looks like your doing the exact same as me on brackets. Gotta love the artec stuff

I used artecs upper and lower mounts on the axle. I especially like the lowers a lot because they have a built in skid.
