Got the tires mounted, they fit nicely

Although they rub more than a dry hand job when I turn, so I will be cutting some body this weekend

Got some of the exo cage done this weekend, still need to do the roof V or whatever the bars over the roof are called. Also will be tying it in to the front bumper/winch plate eventually.

Got some spare doors and cut them in half, the pull handle bolt is just temporary, but honestly it will probably end up staying for a while

Bobbed the bed this weekend, took about a foot and a half out. Pretty happy with the results. Didn't spend too much time sanding down the welds on the bedsides since its gonna get smashed in anyways

Cut off the rear end


Cut off even more, put in square tubing for rear bumper


Support for the bed




Set in place for before welding


All done up and painted

i feel like with some gray and yellow spray paint you could make that look seemless after it sits in the sun for a year

Added some knuckle gussets and frame stiffeners this weekend. Haven't got the tires put back on just yet, but I'll do that this week after work sometime



Before


Tacked in place


Not many other pictures, but here is the stiffeners and the gussets welded in and painted


The center hole in on the stiffener looks boogery cause I had to fill a hole in the frame with some scrap plate and just threw some beads over it, ugly but strong
