heh... .250 wall 2" DOM is some pretty strong stuff, I'd have to be a pretty big nutter to do it any damage! I think I have a guy willing/able to build my links exactly how I want 'em, so Toasty's job (and it's a vital one!) will be frame attachment points for everything and fabrication of a trans. crossmember (to clear drive shaft now that it will be able to droop)
There is also the possibility that I will need a new front crossmember put in place, then remove the one that currently lives directly in front of the axle - to provide clearance for steering/trac bar.
I think I'm going to just buy spring cups and shock mounts, they're not expensive and then all they need is to be zapped up to the frame once I've cleaned it of IFS debris. Lots easier than trying to reinvent stuff that's on the market already
Other than an angle grinder (have one) and a sawzall (have a badly worn out one) and a blue wrench (do not have), what else will be handy for removing the welded-on IFS accessories?
Hey Toasty do you want to come over for beers some time in a week or so (when my axle arrives) to brainstorm? The rest of you guys are always welcome too of course!!
