Quick little update got the rear 4 link welded up as well as the bag mounts still need to do shock mounts and the panhard bar but getting closer to being able to support its own weight again

Made these at work to recess the lower bag bolts in to the lower arm



Rear 4link I might have to redo it eventually but we will see how it handles when itís done

The bag mounts are okay for just using what I had laying around


Thatís all the updates for now

I finally did some more to the truck and rolled it out side last night so I can clean and organize my barn. I have had a couple projects with buddyís so the barn is a mess. Front air bags are installed pulled motor and trans so I can weld the motor mounts in and clean them up. I shortened the box 21Ē. Iím shooting for having it done for the first Saturday in June for the sins of steel show

Got this over to my dads this weekend and up on the hoist. Spent most of the day cutting off old brackets and removing metal to make room for the trans crossmember and steering Sunday afternoon I made the trans crossmember and connected the rack and pinion to the column. Also added some gussets to the rear frame. Today I plan to start making the brackets for the brakes front and rear.
