Well it was less than four months ago I started on this wild and crazy endevor to build my on rig. Never done anything like it before but I think it turned out ok so far. He she is on all fours. Not the final version of rubber. But at least I can move her into the garage for the winter.

Not yet. The rear is totally welded up but the front is just tacked. I should have made it a little longer or shorter. As it is now the front shackle will not allow much compression. I will have to put a piece of 4" flat stock along the frame and then cut back and then re-weld it to allow full suspension movement.

Since I am not working right now, I will not be progressing much this winter. This is about it for now.
