Replaced the 4 link brackets that came with the rear frame section with some much larger, 1/4" steel, 4 link brackets.

Finish tubbing the wheel wells today, fill in the bed floor, then the 10 point cage goes in. The rearend has to get narrowed, and then the motor and tranny has to get shoehorned in. Overall, a lot of work still, but its moving nicely.
