Down the Stretch it Comes!!
Below is how the other mount currently sits fully installed. Not only is it mounted to the down brace but it is also fully welded via the 1/8 plate to the frame itself, creating a super strong mount and additional strength for the rear part of the cage. It will be painted black to match the rest of the cage but this is how it looks for now.
In the underneath shot you can see the Radflo shock fully installed and at the midpoint of its travel along with the Deaver race leafs and new stainless steel brake lines. The lower mount on the passenger side has been flipped from the front of the axle to the rear and will be identical.
All the adjustments on the shocks will be easy to get to and the hole in the floor will be fitted with rubber to ensure a clean look as well as having the bed around where the cage passes through the floor of the truck replaced to clean that up to.
The dash is nearly complete. The insert, as you can see below is almost done, the TIG welding 90% complete needing to have the welds ground and smoothed before the gauge cluster goes in. At that time the intercom and GPS will go in as well.
