not done with the frame tie ins yet, ill most likely only tie in the A and B pillars since for the C i would need to re route the gas filler stuff.... just gonna plate the frame and run a tube or a bushing tube thing to the lower plate on the mottom side of the body. when i do all that ill need to setup the seats and door bars too.... freakin never ends lol

all done with 1.75 DOM .120 wall. with the exception of the lower winshield bar. that is witha piece . 1.5 dom .120.

its been tough getting it all done, we have been cagin an old bronco, long travel for a razr, plate work for a ranger, some other custom work and been working on the trophy truck all at the same time.
we thought we were doing good on the TT and robby G came down before he left to dakar and told us our front shock angle was to steap and our rear links were too long.... lol oh well back to more cutting and grinding lol
