i would defienety make sure your welds on the upper links tabs are good, full penitration all around. not a big fan of how little of an area those have to mount on to

also that monster notch, you should have moved it down more so it over lays the frame completely and then welded it on

are you doing a 4 link? do you have your other links on yet? did you line everything up right? making sure that when its lifted and lowered the axle is still straight and level? and how did you decede where your axle will sit when its layed out? is it going to be centered in the wheel well when laid out? or centered when at drive hieght?

you relocating the stock tank in the bed? or whats planned with that, how about exhaust? just running it cut off? How about cutting your bed, whats planned with that?








ok, enough questions....Looking good man

wow thanks guys.... here the plans.... for the axle and location question.... it does stay center about negitave 2 threw the hole up and down.... when layed out the axle will move back 2 inch's to give it a more full look......for the bed.... i'm plan on doing it in complete dimond plate notch cover and all the tanks going into the bed until i can get a fuel cell...yes there is full penatration on both sides... of the tabs i'm not a big fan of how much room there is but it's the way i drew it up for some reason i can jump up and down on just about all the welds and they hold... weather or not if i get in a wreck i think i'm pretty much screwd or the truck is anyway .....but i'm gonna make some more cross members up... only problem i'm haveing right now is the sleeve bags...they are hard to work with... and i don't think they will stay around long... another thing thats got me worried i'm not completely sure... if the axle is centered side to side.... i know it is but i can't leave it alone cause i think i could be like a cm off..."kind of mind thing" as for the exhaust i'm cooking something up i'm thinking about running an 18inch glass pack with a Flowmaster dual champer 50 series behind it...trying to give it a diffrent tone and get away form the ricey sound.... i should have more pics you in about an hour...we just got done painting everything.. and it looks killer.... fixing to go air everything up for the first time i'll get video here after while if it works lmao

Looking good man... Keep the pics coming. Man you are really putting alot of work into this truck! It shows and looks like you are doing it the right way by taking your time.

BTW:
Never would have guessed with a name like Skyjacker and a Confederate Flag that reads Redneck as your Avatar that you would be driving a bagged ranger. :)
