Thanks! I meant to get pics when I put it on, but was in a rush to get it together the night before the All-Pro Swap meet. I'll be sure to update my thread with better pics.

it was a welding technique. because of the differences in metal I think. His Dad welded it again using a different method and it has held so far.

shock set up is stock mounts front and rear with some i think 10 or 11 in pro craps up front and some og ranchos 8in from the 80s in the rear
and what the plan is is run some tall trail-gear shock hoops and 14 in blistiens 5150s up front and some 12 in inverted blistiens 5100s in the rear
basically like the rear on my buddys

give me a **** load of axle wrap but i already planned ahead i got a sneaky anti wrap bar set up that im gonna do

Anti wrap bar?? Nice. Will this be in your build thread on Rockbrawlers?
Shorter shock also = less $!
