That profile shot of your front crossmember looks like a pallet rack rail section.

got the new rear axle test fitted.. may just leave it there.. still gota get U bolts made for it and get the brakes set up. (waiting on Pyrowaves to get the damn brackets made!) but i was running out of things to work on so i put it in.

Also cut out for the taillights and tacked the D ring tabs back on

and how to move axles by yourself.. Chainfalls are nice.

yeah... and HOW do you attach a chainfall to the ceiling? check out the big tow strap between the rafters. first hang the chainfall from that.



I asked... whats the BIG bar up there for... the answer. "to keep rafters from bending in."



And the moral of the story.... direct quote from MCLOVIN (or close to it)

" IT ONLY HIT ME IN THE HEAD ONCE BEFORE I BUNGEE STRAPPED IT UP THERE!"
