so i finally got the go-getter attitude again and decided to replace my transmission mount since it has been sitting in the garage for the past like 3 months....



its a good thing too.....cuz heres what the old one looked like. yes its in two pieces...







and i finished putting my exhaust all back together. still kinda leaks because welding it was really hard. it was on the edge of the heat shield on the cat and i couldnt get the tip of the welder in there. but it works for now. til i get some real exhaust done

picked up some goodies today...







the top flatbar is 3/8" x 8" and is about 2'-8". the beam is w12 x 19# and is about 2'-0". im gonna use the flatbar for my tcase skid plate. the beam will prolly get the flanges cut off and used for a gas tank skid.



needless to say, between doing coilovers, 63s, and some skid plates, ill be busy this next week

I'm running 750# too. So far I like them, not too hard and not too soft. Just a little bit of sag since I've installed them.

Not sure about your fox's.

good to know you like the 750#s. do you have any added weight(i.e. - skid plates, heavy stuff, fat people riding with you..)??? cuz i think i may end up bumping up to the 800s for weight of bumpers and skid plates

I've got atleast 150 lbs of bumper and winch. Not to mention the skid plate I just put on.

I've honestly been thinking I should of went with 800# coils because the 750# coils have already sagged a little. But I have been giving them hell.

have you thought about synthetic winch cable. That will really help with your weight.

I have. Bucknarly posted some great links to synthetic line.

I need to come off the hip and get a new fairlead and some synthetic line. I'm sure it would help a ton.

I think 100' weighs like 3 pounds haha. And if it snaps it just falls straight to the ground limp. Great investment if you ask me
