Made lots of progress today.

Got all the front suspension mocked up. 36" long links, all of them, 8.5" separation at the axle, 4" at the frame. That is about all I could fit, hope it works good with the 100" wheel base. The crossmember is installed, fully welded, just need to take the center out and finish the driveshaft clearance. Also got all the body mounts fixed, front frame horns replaced, still unsure on bumper, just put a tube in there to hold everything.

Mostly finished crossmember



Plated frame for trackbar mount



Trackbar mount mocked up



3 link. At about full bump, 3" of uptravel right now, limited to my trackbar clearance. Gonna tweek that more to get about 4" of uptravel






The front frame fixed



Tomorrow hope to work on the rear axle. Gonna shave it and finish weld everything.
