The beater is finished, done in 6 weeks with no time spent except weekends and evenings...most of the work was done by Josh my son, cash outlay less than 4K with a big chunk of that in tires/wheels and used axles.......

I don't know, it looks weird with the wheel wells cut off and the remaining back. I'd say either cut the rest of the back off completely or put a tub in the back.

I'm diggin' the OD though

don't try and say it was intenional , we all make mistakes.
explain to me how that bar will keep the axle from rolling up ? it has a shackle on the front and no triangulation , won't axle wrap just as easy as if it were not there ?
