Fresh panels are nice:D
No crossmembers installed on the panels, so I built a sub frame out of a couple sizes of square and rectangle tube, 1/8th wall, and spot welded the floor down.
Had to fix a couple body mount holes, so I put in poly body mounts while I was in there.

The mounts go about 12" along the frame, and through the plate to function as tow hooks.

Slapped a crossover arm on, bolted up so 36" Iroks and off camping for May long.
It was raining on the way home, so a camo tarp for the kidlets.

Unfortunetly, I decided that dune jumping was a good idea 15 minutes after I got there, so she came home in front wheel drive because of the only spare I didn't bring........A spare rear driveshaft.

I broke 2 more rear shafts on the street before I discovered the when I barber polked the rear shaft, it also fubared the np208s output shaft..........
Upgrades came quicker than I had hoped.

I'm working on storage for all the spare parts, (front and rear shafts, driveshafts etc.....)
and came up with this........Tubes for each, bolt throught the rear bumper and keep the spares clean and dry.
