Glenn to the rescue......he drove all the way up there in like no time at all to help fix Randys rig....he brought more tie downs and some hunk of metal to help keep axle strait.

Re: fab-fet trai ride carnage

good pics. That was a bad weld for sure, did not penetrate. Glenn welded it up good and added gussets, hopefully it wont be a problem again. That piece is probally the most stressed part on the suspension. At least it didnt happen at Paragon.
