Looks good, but I dont think those welds will hold worth s*^t, Does Dan know what your doing with his products? He may decide never to sell you anything again.

Re: 1/4 elliptical update part duex...

yikes Pat, those springs are suppose to be on the bottom of the frame!!! Don't you know any better than that? Those will never hold.
What are you welding with????? Two half dead batteries and a coat hanger??? How are you going to get your truck started when you realize that thing will never be done???

Re: 1/4 elliptical update part duex...

Wow, that D300 is Flat. You are going to have some wicked cleance under that Jeep.
I am enjoing your build up,
Do you have plans for addidional support where the springs meet the frame? It seems like that may be in order?
Keep the updates coming.

Re: 1/4 elliptical update part duex...

yes.. there will be more support there.. i am tying in the roll cage there.. and some cross members for the 4 link... and the bottom of the frame will be completely flat.. nothing under it... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

ok.. i did a aaron drawing of what its gonna look like.. somewhat.. the blue cross brace is about 6" forward of the gray rollcage brace... and its just behind the transfer case... so i can still get it out.. since i am welding the blue cross brace in... the skid plate will bolt to it... that way i wont have to mess with the suspension to get at the drivetrain... and vice versa... (the skid plate will be in two pieces.. one covering the transfer case.. one for the tranny.. and it bolts to the tranny skid plate...

Yup, just talking about what he is going to do and not getting around to it.
