maybe just some lateral gusseting since thats the weak axis with sheet material, (even with the joint bolted in). also, the further out the joint is from the member the more it wants to twist when it takes a hit. but - youve got beefy stuff going here, i would think if anything there just an occasional sticking point - not an issue.

speaking of sticking points - dont remember the exact years on 14b's - i think 88 and older, or 89 and newer . . . one of the case designs has a wicked lip on the bottom thats worth looking at deleting. not so much for height but to not get hung up on things - not sure what youve got, just fwiw.

nice build btw youll be done and wheeling while im still measuring sh!t -
