Nice rims.............


That and on your front spring hangers you didnt even box in the cut ends. Just booger welded those hangers as is. If it was me I'd at least box the ends and add a crossmember between them. I think you have the front of the winch bumper in there as a crossmember but with the

What do you have going on for a front winch bumper. I'm familiar with that frame and am rather courious. Too much shadow in your pics.

O yeah and did you make those shackels? It looks like you drilled them seperately and got the holes off. I always clamp them todether and drill or I get the holes off too.

However good use of a cherry picker!

Cool glad your on it with that front end. Still cant see shit in the pics though.

I wish I had caught those bits however....alas I'm not an eagle eye like some here.

If you were closer I'd give you some 15X10 steel wheels and a spare 33 LOL.

That thing has come along way! I've had 2 80's and 1 800. I've seen a few other old school lifts on others too. Why the hell these damn farmers like to weld a piece of plate to the DL for correction is boyond me. They still dont turn woth a shit when SOA with a hoopty system like that.

The 62 I bought lifted like that I got running and sold to a kid. I made him promise and sign that he would re-do that damn steering before driving it on the streat. That thing didnt turn worth a damn even with the wanna be correction.

The last one I looked at had a ScoutII(I think) steering box welded to the frame for its steering. Holy chit some people scare me.
