Yeah, I just have to build some wheel tubs to bond to the composite bed floor and sides.

Got back at it today. Installed the front axle, track bar, and COs.

Painted all the rest of the frame.





Lower control arms and uppers in.





Coilovers in and sitting at droop.



Sitting at ride height on jack stands.

Thanks guys, going out now to replace the ball joints. I still need to clean up the knuckles and shafts. Then I can install new ujoints in the axle shafts.

You can't please him. I've stopped trying.

Johnny, front looks good. Now on the rear the shock mounts, narrow frame, looks like it's a weak point. You get a little rambunctious and the frame might
start folding in there. Shock mounts take a lot of abuse and yours are in the middle of a stress point. Might work for ya. I would beef up the area between the shock towers up as much as possible, in a manner that deals with the forces that work on the shock tower and the forces exerted on the rear spring shackles. Other than that the usual great fab work

Guess I need to post a better picture of that area. Double reinforced behind the shock mount. And the fact that its 1/4 wall box tubing. No chance it will ever buckle,If I buckle 1/4 inch wall box tub I will have bigger problems than that. but thanks for looking out Art.
