Trimmed the top off the 205 so I can have my seat a little lower.

It didn't weld up too bad except for one spot that must have been a shitty spot in the casting. Hopefully it holds up!

That Tcase looks pretty good, how does the clearance for the driveshaft look from trans pan?

I have to run a 2 piece driveshaft anyways so it will clear everything fine. A 1 piece would hit my skid pan. I am going to weld a plate on the drivers side of the 205 to put a t case mount on, that is why I ground the one weld flat.

I took a couple 16" airshocks as a partial trade for the 10" ones I had. I think I will run them in the back and get a set of coilovers for the front for now. At least it gets me a little closer...

I ran out of 1 3/4 Dom so I couldn't finish my chassis changes but this is what it is looking like so far.

Got the ram mount all mocked up.

I will pull it all off the axle to finish weld and I will get the axle all cleaned up before I weld the truss to it.
