Added a welding table out of scrap, buddy gave me a drill press for some welding, added a tube notcher to a new stand for my bender, added a jd2 #32 bender to the mix, and got all the fittings and hard line for my hydro assist...will do a ram and lines with filter/reservoir in a week or so...

Finished up sliders......haven't decided on plating the rear upper piece like a semi fender

Going to plate the pinch seam and keep it tight. I welded the otherside up to the rear panel. Its all 1 piece now I'll finish this one later....

Went wheeling and put the hurt down pretty bad on the sliders...held just fine but actually gashed the steel pretty deep on some areas...the rocks were solid on a few parts of the trail...
Smashed my muffler almost in 1/2 , list front driveshaft (dented and gouged), ripped the front part of my gas tank skid through and mashed the cross member up into exhaust and all most into the tranny skid...was a GREAT DAY!!!!!

We Machined out some 17-4 stainless high misalignment spacers to 5/8" for Tracbar !replaced front 9/16th to 5/8
Then made a harness bar from some 4130 chromoly .084 3/16th chromoly plate SUPER light and strong...used 1.5" instead of 1.75 that rock hard uses,
. Got a buddy with the rock hard one and this is ALOT lighter. Not some need to do a couple things still then I'll eventually do a full cage.
grabbing some 3" crow harness's from a buddy tomorrow.

Got a little more done to the cage tonight. Notched the sound bar to fit back tomorrow night I'll start running some upper horizontals over rear section and a "V" on the bar behind the seats....then start the front section it'll tie in 4-6 places on body and or urethane hinges on frame...
Fits like a glove, I'll start the front windshield section in a few days....

Just excellence everywhere, seems like your always itching to go break parts so you can come back home and replace them with better parts made by Brut4ce.

Great stuff!
