Some pics from a few days ago. Haven't gotten to work as much as planned but it's coming along....
Lower shock mounts
Cramming the crossbrace in
Don't worry about strength of the brace or any of the mounting, there's LOTS more to come everywhere.....just wanna get everything in place first then make it nice and strong.
Hover Dodge! Hummins?
Abuse or not, I don't think $900 Deaver leafs should do this after 2 years.....
This one doesn't surprise me too much though.....told him bumpstops needed to happen ASAP:
The bar is just 1.5" .120 wall DOM but I'm still surprised it bent that close to the mounting point. The brackets and welds held fine but it's actually bending the inside of the framerail right there! Oh well, just some more work to do. Already got the bumpstops to put in, just gotta redo the shock mounts now too.
