    Couldn't wait so I snook out last night to hook upp the rear end. Dont know how much more the bags will compress when you get the cab,bed motor in but I'm layin it out as it sits now.
    One problem. The notch in the rear crossmember have to be even deeper,prop is like 2mm from it when I line up the tranny [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Took me almost half a day to mount these freakin'! lower aarms with energy susp bushings...

    Know it's a little bit o double work to paint the frame without have weld the frontshock brackets but thats the way it is

    Pic on front ground clearance is with oem spindles. With 2" drop spindles it will lay out just fine.....at least on 15" tires

    ...ohh also I totaly messed up the rear shock fabrication by mounting the shocks upside down .....working on a solution that doesent involve re-weld the brackets on the axle...to be continued [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The upside down damper problem turned out to be a pretty straightforward fix..... just trimmed the brackets and I think it turned out nice.
    Seemed to be that the rear is going to be unneccesery low so I will space it up with 35mm cups. The damper will go from fully compressed to strecht out completly,wont have any margin. So time will tell if the damper will hold up.
    Did the shock mounting bar thing. Bolted it instead of welding. That way I can just unbolt it and adjust if needed (it's just tacked in the pics)[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Another friday in the garage.
    Finally weld the front shock brackets on.....and as you can see I mixed up left and right bracket but the function is the same so.....
    Also fixed the trimmed shockbracket on the axle. Accidentaly drilled the hole to 14mm...... should be just 12mm,but all fixed and painted
    My old steering rods thats been freshen up with new adjusters and boots
    My newly painted old front shocks. Found some old brakecaliper paint,but i took like 6 days to dry
    Know they have to much stroke but they were in great shape and I'm on a budget....so

    Started to reassembly the newly painted steering components,anti rollbar and the rear shockbracket.
    Before the winter (2 months)this is going to be a rollin chassi so I can put it outside and make room for the cab inside[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Transmission post-mockup..... close but no problem. If I decide to go with bigger wheels in the future there will be some modification needed[​IMG][​IMG]
