Super Jeep: A Re-build

Been going to do a build thread a long time, well this will be a rebuild and on going saga thread. After my Alaska adventure it is time to replace the frame. A number of possibilities, tube it out, patch whats there, box tube. Decided to keep the stock look, with a box frame. Easier and faster than a tube. Super Jeep will never be an all out racer, it will always be something I can go hunting, wheeling, or take the grand kids to the mountains in. I figure the last frame lasted 19 years after I modified it adding 25". So if I make the next one twice as strong it should last a bit longer. First thought was 2 x 4 box tube 1/4" wall. But that just seamed to heavy. Turns out 2x4x1/4 was actually lighter and weaker than my old 4 1/4"" C channel frame with a top and bottom 1/8" doubler strap. So what to do, After some solids modeling I came up with a frame that was 2.7 x stronger than the old frame but lest than 30% heavier. It will be 6 1/2" in the middle where the stress is highest, then working back to 4 1/2", and then transitioning back to the 3" rear frame section. It may even work out to be less than 20% as I am not replacing all of the frame. The front extension, motor to bumper with winch and power steering mount, and rear extension was done years ago. So just redoing the 7 1/2 feet that is bent down, cracked up and twisted over. I made a sketch of all pertinent mounting and clearance points. Then drew it out full scale on my little table and sawed up the rectangular tube to fit constraints. Tomorrow, lots of welding.

Going to be a good build. I love your "normal man" style of pimp build. This would be betterbint Gen 4x4 I think though.
