Given the quoted text above (engine mounts reinforced and frame rails tied together), then why use a cradle at all? Seems like it would be in the way and totally redundant. Maybe I'm just being about it?

I don't know. I thought adding a cradle would make the mounts super bomber and eliminate a lot of the fframe flex. most factory rigs have a sort of cradle. Now, i know lots of the suspension stuff hangs off it too, but ????

I don't have a cradle in mine. I do still have the factory crossmember under the radiator though. I would try and wrap it around the top of the frame.

nothing accomplished. Decided to scrap the rear leaf springs, and have been working on a 4 link with coils.

Started working on my truss todaytoday. Not very fancy, made from 2x4x.25. Its still a little long, and I need to figure a good way to tie it into the housing.



Need to add some material to my frame, figured I would use some 3/16 2x4 nd incorporate the body mount into it. This will be the cut line.

Looking good. I tied my truss into the diff cover. What coils are you going to run?

And here's how I did mine...



This is a Ruffstuff diff cover and the bolts go all the way through the truss.

early bronco coils, 3.5" lift progressive rates with Duff shorty upper buckets.

Buck, I was looking for pics of yours, but couldnt find the thread. Where did you put your upper link mounts at the frame?

The only issue I am having is that to get the pinion pointed in the right direction, the diff cover is a good few inches back from the truss. Im on duty for af ew days, so my head is swimming with ideas. Id like to find someone that can weld a web in there, along the top of the housing. Sterlings have been known to spin tubes. I dont think I would be comfortable mig'ing the web. Ive been told to use a nickle rod, but thats beyond my ability.

What's the problem with rolling the truss back so it's even with the diff cover?

thats what I was thinking. A single web welded to the housing. I just dont know how to stick weld.

I like the diff cover idea, but it would require lots of fill pieces at off angles to fit right and I am looking for a cleaner solution.

that 60 looks nice Scouttanks

You don't need to know how to stick weld with the NI rod. It is kinda like soldering. Just pre heat, cool very slow and peen the snot out of it.

Peen, as in relive the stress of the weld. Use a slag hammer to put indentations into the weld and this action will help to relive the heat and cool cycle of the weld.
