Truss looks nice, not too bulky. How far forward is the new axle location?

I kinda agree, I think a bigger gusset is in order.

Where do you see it bending at? Right above the gusset?

FYI the up rights are 1/2" witch I'm sure you can't tell in the picture.


Could you bend them maybe? But to bend them I think something else in the Bds kit would fail long before you could bend them.

Thank you for your post (I like constructive criticism) I just don't see it bending, but if you can explain to me how. I'd be more then happy to change it.

I agree that they look smallish but the upper link doesn't bear the brunt of the force and weight like the lower does. Even so, this Jeep will not be wheeled very much so the likelihood of failure is further reduced. But in the event of failure I'll be prepared to bubble-gum booty-fab it back together before the mall closes.
