So I over-engineered and over-built some "security" using 1/8" steel plate and 3"x4" angle iron, all of which came from either my company's scrap pile or cut out from old Oil Well Pumping Units. Plated the outside and secured it in the tub, then reinforced the back side of the fender-wells, basically if this thing breaks I did something horribly wrong. I know someone will comment on the fender washers inside the tub, but don't worry they will get replaced.
Nice work with the tire carrier.

Where did you get those d-ring mounts on the rear cross member? Those are awesome.

Aired the tires back up to street pressure. Has been sitting in the back of the garage since I took it to Moab in October.

Started on the rear shackle mounts.

They were just butt welded to the frame that was so thin in places I could poke a chipping hammer through it.


Kept cutting until I got back to something I could work with.


Started cutting some tubing to get some plating to the shape I want.




Got a few pieces welded in to the point where I have the shape, and can now start to build on that.


Ran out of steel and called it a day.

As a fitter/welder, it is not uncommon to tack pieces together with out using a helmet. You get everything into place, just before you squeeze the trigger, you close your eyes. Your only putting a spot weld on it. Used to do it for 10hrs a day with no issues. Unless I would mix up the "close eyes, squeeze trigger" and do "squeeze trigger... close eyes"

You know that song.. Blinded by the light.... It was written for welders.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

I changed the oil & filter. Tried to get the speedo working. Gonna have to get a new one. I'm just going to wait and buy an entire set of gauges and replace them all at once.
My engine is finally working a little better. Before it wasn't running at all. Then it was running but barely. It won't run with a correct timing set. It has to be advanced a bit. Does that indicate jumped time or a worn timing chain?
I also have a tick in the engine. Bent pushrod? My engine has a miss in it most of the time. If anyone can advise, please do!
I should also add that I have done a long list of things already. Here's what's been done; New carb, distributor, dstr cap, rotor button, plugs, wires, fuel filter, control module, fuel pump, igniton switch, and pcv valve. Everything has been tuned to get the engine running as best as possible. Everything is good except for the missfires.

Yesterday I installed new front shackles. The ones on it were homemade and looked crappy. I just bought factory replacements for now. The bushings were all but gone in the old ones. What a job that was. I thought it would be a simple job, but NO-ooo! Anyhow, the new ones look much better!
