    Worked on the front part of the frame today.
    I have most of it tacked into place.

    Installed the Spring Hanger Brackets...
    The rear shackles were set at 23 degrees which equates to 1 inch offset from the bottom to the top hole of the shackle.
    Some more welding and grinding/cleanup left to do..

    Modified the U-bolt Plates to a accept the polyurethane bump stops.
    Also finished up welding and cleaning up the frame.
    Left to do on the frame is:
    - Weld frame portion of shock mounts.
    - Weld expanded metal to deck.
    After that I think it will be good to go the the powder coater.

    I laid out the brake cable to get an idea of how I am going to run it.
    Anyone else relo their parking brake and cable or go with something completely different that works better/easier? Pics?
    Just looking for ideas..
