the color i chose.. it is a copper pearl with a flat finish... so in the shade you get that flat dark look, but in the sun it looks metallic

been working hard getting ready for our first race in Feb to start the season


here is one of the gusset tubes, we decided to go straight in stead of down and bend, keep it stronger and cleaner





here are the pictures of the frame work... have 3/4 4130 250 wall crush sleeves on passenger side for swinger.. both sides have 3/16 plate on each side tieing frame to new engine cage and to the cross brace... it will be completely boxed on the ends once we build the bumper, plates already cut to close it up

















here are the picks from the mock up of the shock mounts... we are almost done with driver side bypass.... the coilover droop it self out without binding.. bypass is on the exact same plane as the coilover is and should have no issues either being that lengths are identical.. we will be gusseting and dimpling the sides of the tabs





















just about done... mocking up last tab on upper bypass mount

these are my old hubs that were in my previous housing... were only used for mock up... first $500 takes them.. same as the dezert nation ones, in fact use to say dezert nation on them until manufacture took back an unpaid order and re anodize the caps and I bought from him. Snouts not included I can get for under 200, they are 2.25 and are identical to dezert nation, camburg, and mitler brothers.. One has nicks in it because previous shop who screwed rest of the things on my truck did not use grease and bearings and nut had rusted to snout, had to use a screw driver to get it off. They are 5x5.5 with coarse thread. When I bought these they were $1100, they now sell for $1500 and only difference is the two snouts and the bearings and seal, I have the bearings but i suggest buying new ones. For the front you just need to get the snouts, for rear you need to get snouts and get hollowed out and get drive plates.



got the bypass finished.. minus gussets.. it cycle perfectly, took shots as it droop out on it own... no binding at all just like the coilover... think it looks so much better then before






here is the suspension drooping out on its own

The start of the bump can set up, it’s bolt on since they are mounted to beam mounts… Took us a long time we tried so many variations trying to get it out as far as possible and not change through its travel so it would end up in our dimpled pad






Limit strap, it will have dual on each side


Suspension is off, to weld it up, cleaning it up and building our dimpled gussets to box in bump can mounts, there are these cuts all around one of the beams but it must have been like that when dave welded them up because they are only on the inner plate, if it was after I got them their be gouges on all the plates not just inner one all the way around





Started making all our gussets





Not going to believe what we found after we removed the suspension for the first time since I had the truck, previous shop drilled beam mounts while mount was tacked up leaving a bunch of metal in between mount and frame rusting it all up and 3 of the holes have to be slugged and welded and redrilled because they didn’t set it up based on the factory holes and then take a marker or whatever and draw the other holes that have to be drilled, actually we might have to slug all them, now that I think about it.





The clips resting space and some upgrades to the garage and our other toy 

Finished motor mounts yesterday, took longer than I hope but with no engine hoist and not pulling motor made it a little more fun lol. I would say we drop it an inch to 1.5" and moved it back an inch. The x brace clears easily now, we used the stock motor plate because it was made out of 3/16 and nice lip. We could of drop it more if we made new plates but we do not plan to keep this motor so made it simpler. Also put the bushing on the frame side so when new motor went it we could just put new tabs on the new motor, but I wish I would of put the bushing on the motor plate. The bushing is welded to the frame and then 4 plates are welded to the bushing and frame, next time motor is out ill put a gusset in between the bottom two plates. We still have clearance all the way around.
Before:



Lifted it up


Lowered it back down, Just to see how far down it would go


New mounts




Got the x brace all tacked in, plenty of room… before the alternator was in the way and required a bend to be put around it




Completed the fix on driver frame beam mount, the passenger side was worse. I had notice the mount was not up against frame thought the bolts were just not tight, nope they tacked it up and drilled holes without it being all the way up in the frame. So several holes to fix and one needs to be slugged and redrilled. These corrections are making fabrication go longer on front, BAP is out of the question looking at the MORE race in March since do not want MINT 400 to be first
