i was thinking about that today... i probably should, just to tie in the front crossmember with the frame more because thats where the winch is going to be mounted... im probably going to have to pull the radiator out so i can get all the way in there to weld...

Its probably a good idea mine was starting to tear in a few of those wrinkled spots where the cut out little triangles are i plated it with .25 so i think its good to go now.

so i started to set up the rear the way i have wanted to... chopped the rear off... then got some 2x4 box steel.. welded between the rails and reinforced the heck outta it!! then moved the rear shackle hangers down a bit to help the angle and clearance...

eventually im going to re-inforce it even more by adding some upper supports to stop the rotating force and some side supports to stop side to side movement.
