    I'm just chillin for a little while cuz my arms are sore so here ya go. I'll have it all cut by suppertime and it'll either get welded tonight or tomorrow. I mocked up the mount for the 8274 last night and it's gonna look a little awkward but be beefy as hell and shouldn't touch the approach angle. The rear shock mounts need to be welded as well which will probably be tomorrow. I put off making the holders for the spare shafts since I needed to bend the bedsides and the wheel tubs are on the floor at the moment. I'll do a full weekend thread tomorrow night but until then, this is all ya get. Oh yeah, BTW, the door is cracked open because the striker no longer fits. :doah:

    Just coming in to take another break. I was doing good on the one side until Murphy started to feel underrepresented in the project. I'll give the details later but lets just say Makita Sawzalls have a working life of ~ 2 years. It'll get welded tomorrow and I'll post a longer thread when I get back to school tomorrow night. Until then, stick a fork in me, I'm f'in tired.
