more work done today, rear axle is stripped clean. I have never seen such shitty welds on an "expensive" axle before. There were goober welds 3/4" wide, 3/4" thick holding on the shock mounts and a few other brackets.

I tacked the truss on to mock the rear suspension up. Im not 100% happy on how the rear truss is sitting, due to how the axle is cast. Im thinking of having the top milled/ground down so the truss sits flat and i could use the 4 mounting spots on top of the axle. I can only take 1/4" out of the back of the truss and that isnt enough.

I also cut off the rear suspension mounts off the frame. Just need to grind things down and fill in a few holes.
