I'll say, it's a nice clean build. 6" is actually pretty low if you can get 37-40" tires under it. That's where mine is 6.5" over stock, stuffs 40's like no other at that height. I have some changes coming for mine. I'll try to update my thread when it finally happens, maybe by mid summer I'll be working on it lol.

Keep at it siettas, if you take your time and build it with a keen eye on things, you'll have a bitchin' rig. I'd like to wheel with you some day after it's done!

last night cleaned up axle and cut truss up to fit axle good and ground on frame and got her ready for plating in, also couple more goodies came in the mail, new header gaskets and ARP bolts to fix the lovely ls manifold exhaust leaks.

I'd cut holes in them and do rosettes in there too. Right through the middle about 2 inches apart is what i did mine.

i probably should, but it isn't really flat behind the plates

So the plate is held on better. Just welding the edges leaves lots of possibilities for problems. By making holes you essentially weld the center of the plate to frame as well. They don't have to be centered. Just put them in areas that you can weld to frame. More weld surface=stronger build.

Cool. I actually need to change that. I sold that thing. Bought a s10 blazer on 3/4 ton axles with a 5.3 ls in it. I bought it from @BLZR
