i didn't waste much time this morning...



frame prepped





one of my helpers



plated start of the frame


my welder doing his best



test fitting some of the hoop



axle under it!



drivers side shock/coil hoop done!


passenger side hoop almost done!



that is pretty much it for the night. got distracted a few times and had a few other things to do today, but overall not bad since ive never done any of this stuff before and neither has my dad.

oh yeah prolly another days worth of work on the hoops.

might have to cut a big notch in the frame where the coils are too, idk yet. might have some serious issues with that. thus why it took us so long to figure out how to do it.

we really didnt get moving on the truck until 1 this afternoon.

lemme ask you this..

could you of angled the hoop away from the frame like have it start and move it out..but wouldnt that throw your coils towards the end othe axle..and you already had your buckets in place..

i think i answered my question..

but thats how i learn (:

so which means you couldnt kick the hoop out to get it away from the frame cuz it would end up to far on the axle..

That's good progress for one day Zach!

But why are you talking about notching the frame? Are you thinking the coils are going to hit the frame under heavy articulation?
