Welding up the drivers side







So drilling the mounting holes in the frame was major PITA. Ended up buying a 90 degree drill adapter from harbor freight to reach the top holes. I was a little unsure of how it would pan out, but it got the job done.






Gussets welded in




More welding




Stopped for a nutritious dinner




Then it was back to welding and grinding. Ended up getting both sides done and ready for paint late Thursday night.





A quick coat of paint friday morning and I was able to mount them on the truck in the afternoon. A couple of the bolt holes needed to be “adjusted”, but they went on fairly smooth.















I’m very happy with the way they turned out. It’s gonna take a while to get used to having them there though. I went to get out of the truck tonight and my foot fought the top bar and about fell on my face. Haha.





Took advantage of the nice weather we're having today and adjusted the pre-load on the coilovers. I meant to do this after the front bumper went on, but I kept putting it off. I only added about a turn and a half.






Also rearranged my spare parts and fluids bin for an upcoming wheeling trip.
