Ben,
I guess I don't understand. Is your frame all that fubarred already? What's wrong with it that dictates a whole new build?

Yes the 4'x8' 1/4" sheet was all stuff for the frame.. And a few things for the roll cage and what not..

I wont lie this thing is going to be a little heavy.. But on a rig that already weighed 5500 lbs.. I really don't care.

Here is what I got done yesterday.. Started the frame rails which are welded up..


Now to make some cross members, then bring in the tube to start boatsiding.

Well as modeled the frame weights only 351 lbs. So I am sure I am pretty close to spec with the old..

So yes I will run my air shocks..

Nobody can leave anything alone. Spend months and months getting it how you want, wheeling it for about a dozen trips and then rip it apart again. But, that's why we each have our own Jeeps so we can do whatever we want to it.

I wanted a clean slate for my new wiring harness.. And sense I am making this a very simplistic rig, easy for trouble shooting, somethings that I only need as its a trail rig that I plan to beat the shit out off.. I do not want any of my stock interior.
