Note my upper mounts are just 3x3 square tubing that have 3/16 walls with one face cut out. I found cutting the seamed side out was best for heim placement . Eventually I will replacing this with plasma tables and press bent mounts but I had access to niether when I build it

During my test stumble my cross member broke the welds, so much for cast and mild welding. That being said I designed some tube mounts on auto cad and sent them to tomb raider. I'll use them to sandwich the adapter between the tubes.

In other news my steering is finished. Now that I have auto cad I've designed my rear suspension again and truss.

I'm having a hard time figuring out my exhuast, i think im going to try to run a drive side manifold on the passenger so that the outlets is low and forward As much as I want to run dual exhaust, with how my gas tank sits, my axle twists, and my links are located, it will be impossible. I'm thinking about running these as they are small and short. maybe i can still do duals.

I have gotten sick of tearing apart axles on the ground and lifting them up on jack stands. I've dropped my axle twice now off of the stands and it just sucks, so I made an axle dolly. The steel is 2x2x1/8, I sketched up a few mounts on AutoCad for the axle for the dolly and the actual axle retainer for the 14 bolt.







I marvel every time i see the different between a 14 bolt and a dana 35



My wife got be this the other day for my birthday



I'm taking another step back in this build to redo all the mounts. I never thought it would come to this as i have tried to keep this under some budget, but as more people bring their rigs over for me to tinker on, i see that there is a small potential for at least a side income. I realize that plated leaf spring mounts arent as pretty has other mounts so lets see if I can make this a little more professional looking.

All is well, I finally got the transmission dropped and the ready to put back in. Sucked having to do it just because of throw out bearing length. I have the rear of the frame cut off, ready for retubing. Plus i have fixed the issue with the transmission crossmember.

You can't ever have too many grinders

Rear frame is almost done. I'll be adding a second row for the back bumper to double "shear" a hitch.
The b and c pillars are braced and I still need to add the shock mounts.



Things been busy as always. I took the plunge and got my license, you can find me at Facebook.com/thompsonor. From here on out, if you see anything you like from a build I'm working on, I can replicate it for you.
