got the subframe mounts front rear and the frame cap/fishplates all welded in, ugly but all in there good... next week I'm either gonna start tackling the front uca relocation and bag mounts or figure out and mount the tank so the bed can go back on for the body drop on it..... we'll see

Looks like I won't have to cut the bed much at all for the arms if any. The tubular adjustable arms might have even more clearance too...

Got my brake lines n wiring up against the frame and k rails and cut a notch out of the subframe for the tank to sit nicer... it's gonna be about four inches further forward than stock and about an inch higher. I'll have to move the floor bulge in the cab for the tank forward along with it and it should fit right in there. Wednesday I'll cut the floor and get it all mounted up after I box and fishplate a small section of frame in front of where the k bar comes into the stock frame

Gas tank has found a home!!! It'll be 4.5 inches forward of stock and 3/4 up off the ground and about an inch up from stock. Plenty of room for the skid plate too

Cut the floor for the tank clearance. Ill cap most of the hole with the piece I cut out placed five inches forward and about a half inch up won't be much at all to get er all massaged n patched in and the tank hump will still be just barely taller than the stock dshaft tunnel

Boxed the rest of the sections in front of the k member still gonna add fishplates and clean up my ugly welds... also radius capped the outer corners of the new crossmember and got up underneath and welded up the bottom side of everything finally... now I can put the bed on for cutting the body drop... ugh can't wait! I really hope the offset of the wires works with the bedsides I'm hoping to get a nice tight fitment but I don't want to have to graft 4wd fronts or find 2dr pathy rears. I'm hoping to just roll em a bit...
