Those mounts look simple enough though. Now you guys have me second guessing it. Maybe ill just keep the stock bucket and just cut more into the crossmember.

Spent a few hours after work tonight cutting and prepping for welding. Finished the driveside

Notched the rear crossmember enough to fit the stock coil bucket


notched the coil bucket as well


Finished cutting and did a lot of grinding so this side is ready to weld up.

Yeah that looks like it fits up solid. What's the plan after that? Box the frame back in and notch it again down further for the shocks? Lots of work to move that stuff back a few inches. Especially if you've already out boarded.

So much work for a few inches! I hope you are enjoying the process.

You bet but I think this was a better route vs. cutting off the frame and starting from scratch. That's not fun.

Yeah box in the ford shock tower section and close it off. Then I'll be using a larger piece over the top for strength.

yeah Im hoping she will be driveable by next weekend!

In related news I shipped out my corner armor, and half doors to Hendrix yesterday. I will be getting his hiline'd hood and all the parts including my new fenders will be painted by him to match my jeep so I'm pretty pumped!

Thanks man!
