Why did you weld your console panels in? I would have put in tabs with nut-serts so you could have easy access.

There are 3 removable panels in it. Couldn't make the large one work with tabs.

Thanks for the pissy reply. Just asking a constructive question.
My thoughts are that if you can weld sheet metal in place to tubing that you can bolt it with tabs. That's one of the biggest bangs for your buck.

The whole counsel is bolted in though right? So it can be removed if need be?

Huge thanks to Kevin at Jeeperz Creepers, for the hookup.

He's the man with this kind of stuff fastest shipping in Michigan too

Got some bling Reid knuckles on the front now to prevent the highsteer arms breaking the stock ones.

Yes of course and I'll toss them in the trailer just for good measure. Side note I'll need studs for them to actually be used tho.
