    I feel ill.....

    a perfectly good eaton rear axle :doah:

    Is it just my eyes decieving me or do you have it setup to be a towable item? If so, wtf purpose does it serve? If its got a big tongue sticking out of the front it won't be very useful for much.

    How thick is the boom? what material is it? And you aren't worried about triangulating off of the upper frame to the lower one? Seems scary ready to topple to me.

    That's the whole chassis , Sch80 3" Boom, Sch 80" 2" & 2.5" hinge And certified welds all around. The lower loop has since been moved twd the center to lessen tension on the 2 ton chain comealong . I made a hinged tongue for moving it around with anything that has a tow hitch. I strength tested It with a 2500LB steel weight, No problem. The base extends further than the boom therfore It will not topple. Have a little faith in American Steel Ladies!
