Nice job on that bracket. I like the rolled corners.

That might work out depending on the schedule and I might be able to drop mine off to a guy in Ohio..... who was talking to me about mine. But let me know when the time is closer.

Looking solid! Since there was some talk of Rat Rod jeeps, I'll just leave this here. Very entertaining.

Got the synergy ball joints today. Looks like I have everything to put together the front and rear axles now.

Lots of work going down this weekend.

Frame update:

I just jumped in this morning, getting more done than I thought I would. I started out grinding and cleaning up the frame. Then welded the things I missed the other night. I also trimmed the bottom of the shock towers and welded in the receiver for the hitch. Added a crossmember to the frame just behind the cab.



Then taped up the cab to keep the overspray down.




Front and rear axles:


Biohazard gusset





Fox shocks with Resi



Going to have to make some custom spacers for the top of the shocks out of some 1/2 inch ID tube I have.





Leaf springs going in.



Rear axle going in:





Lining up the spring perches and U bolt eliminators.




Diana snugging up the bolts:





Snugging up the other side.





all buttoned up.









Still a ton to do, but Its coming along nicely I think.

Did you get the bed/wheel tubs figured out after cutting for the shock towers?
