On the 88 or the 9?

9"'s are already welded together, thats just the way that they are assembled. The tubes are slid into the center and either butt welded or pie cut and welded.

The 8.8, yes I did.

rngprerunner's Project Log

In case you guys didn't know, I am 4-Linking and Caging my truck. And this Saturday the fun began!

Now I know I am going to get some flack from some of you for this, but I have to do it, work obligations. The updates are posted in the form of BLOGS on Off-Road Magazines web site, www.off-roadweb.com. I will link too it every day, and all you have to do is click on one extra link to see the updates. It will only take a moment of your time. You don't have to comment there, you can comment here. Though I would really appreciate it if you would comment both places

So, without further ado, DAY 1 and DAY 2

Click Here for Day 1 and Day 2

Um.. not sure, in that pick they were just sort of sitting there, not mounted to anything. Besides, I'm not sure which angle you are talking about...lol

Yea, triangulated.

Clever huh,I figured this one out too late myself though, after the first time I did the rear of my truck. Never knew grinder sparks could melt glass
