Okay guys, got home from my trip on friday and from there I went all out for the other 4 days I had off. I got the frame finished, painted, and all ready to go. I did my final painting on my fenders so this week I will bolt them up for good. I started the assembly of my front axle so that I can roll it into the garage next weekend if my dad gets his army truck in storage. I made these braces for my upper arms to add a little individuality to them.. Well heres some pics.

Ya I agree but I tried my best.. Worst come to worst when you get your new toy done I might be seeing you for a tube back half.. But other than that I think it will work good. I think I did a good job with a grinder, torch and harbor freight chop saw lol

Ok heres the start of my front susp. set up.. I am going to lower the mounts on the axle little more than an inch so that its just about a 1/4" from shock body to top of the tube.. And my upper mount will be similar to the designs in the photos.



For you McLovin
