Got alot of work done tonite pulled the axle out clean it up and welded on my ballistic fab truss.

Then i bolted the shocks and lower arms back on and used tie downs to hold it at ride height. I tacked on the lower frame mounts which need to go about an inch farther forward.


Now i just need to make and mount a upper link and move my lowers then i can move onto the new trans cross member.

Yes it will. You could cut out some arches to drain but a slit will clog with Mounds muck. Or put tube through the holes and weld them and weld the whole bottom.

Havent updated this in a while but i got the sye in and the long arm done and it performed well its first time out. I have since installed a teraflex oil pan skid and pulled the radio out to mount a oil pressure gauge and i will be mounting my cb right next to the oil pressure gauge.
