So yeah, didn't get much accomplished this weekend due to our steel shop not having any 1/8th round stock for a safety bead, but did get all 4 rings welded and ground down. Went DBAG whit on the outers:flipoff2:


So with no steel and a fresh dump of snow decided to go wheeling instead, now I got more shit to fix:homer:

Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing. Rig looks awesome.

Can you post some pics of your front 3 link setup when you get a chance?
Thanks, I have a few during mock up, somethings have changed since then though, but link location is still the same. I could take some recent pics at ride height also...

Full drop


Few inches past full drop


Full stuff flex shot


Looks pretty tight, but around 1.25" clearance between panhard and crank


Another of the axle at full stuff


Truss just clears


And just the one flex shot
