I plan on speed holes for sure. And yes I'll probably gusset that area and probably weld it to the cast just for fun. But wanted to utilize the free bolt holes and keep the flat spot beyond it for the bump stop pad
You might want to do the relocation of the oil filter. Even if you dont go for more travel, with clearances that close you will end up with a control arm into it. Just my drunkin thoughts.... And oddly enough they are usually correct.
Tried some bump stops I got at pick and pull but they are too long and too squishy.
I decided that these little shorties would work since I can dial the air shocks in so they slow everything down before the hit. Air shocks naturally have a very progressive spring rate. So these are to stops the upper from taking out the oil filter.
Then I cut some steel out of the upper bracket to make starter pulling easier someday.
Looks like really awesome progress! I've got some reinforcement I need to do on my frame as well... is there a recommended thickness to use for the plates? Or does it differ depending on the need of reinforcement?

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
