Gonna do an X in the portion above the fuel cell?
Not sure yet, probably not right away. Still gotta figure out radiator mounts, and the spare tire mount.

I need to order a couple more sticks of tube tomorrow too. I used up 5 1/2 sticks so far with basically no scrap. Lots of toob

Incorporate some sort of tire/tool carrier to get some weight back over the ass end. Also, you should add some flatwork with dimple dies instead of all the tube connecting the rear shock hoops to the bed rails.

I don't dig the tape work at all but to each his own. I'll take a better look tomorrow.

I'm not sure how your weight distribution is but I love having the extra 200lbs of tire in the back of mine really does help level out the rig

Thinking I'm gonna tie the 2 sides together behind the cell, then run tube forward, to the bottom of the V (after I make them, roof to horizontal bar behind the cab)

Then I'm gonna tie the side into the frame in front of the shock hoop. Not sure how I'm gonna tie into the top bars.

I just want to be sure it is built right, without overdoing it.

Done for now. Still have to figure out a spare tire mount and do a little more tube work on the upper portion of the bed area and tie into the frame a little more.







Let's go wheelin'

He is missing both but I think he should of just painted the inner fenders because he is just going to smash the regular fenders the first time out.
