Love the rolled bars they look neater and closer to the body that you could do with just straight tubes..

Keep us posted with lots of front end photos..

Been a while since I was able to get some time to work on my own project. Having a kid and friends with long travel trucks take up a lot of my time.

I was able to get the beam partially mounted this weekend. It is a 12 over beam with 4 over top mount arms pulling 17". I laid it back 7.5 degrees. I am hopping to have more time for this now.

A bonus is a 33x10.5 inch tire will fit under the hood.

Got the rest of the front end done today. I got the shock angle set and I am ready to start making the mounts.

Worked on a bumper this weekend. I still have to cut out a skid plate and make a dimpled filler to go between the straight bar and the rolled bar on the top. I am also waiting on the billet dome end caps to finish off the ends of the rolled tube.

Very nice!! the car looks awesome...

I noticed on your front bumper you have straight cut ends.. I found a neat little trick that really cleans them up the makes him look nice.. I use handrail pipe ends. There about a dollar a piece and I get them from a shop by Washington and 32nd St... Can't remember the name of the place but I've been going there for years.. They come in a million different sizes and styles when I usually buy them I buy like 20 at a time it takes me a few years to use them up but they sure look nice..

Thanks. I actually have solid billet caps on order. I agree the rounded off look adds a lot.

I bought these:

Got some work done today. I also took some pics (since everyone likes pics)

Mocking up the rear arms. Bump is with 4 inches of ground clearance and drop is right around 28*cv angle.




Started clearancing the tunel to make room for the pedals



Got the lower skid plate cut out and dimpled. Just need to weld on the tabs.




Couple extra pics
