It fell apart just drooping a few inches.

So I welded up the extended splined add-on from trail gear which I still need to flex out to see how it does. when I do I'll post pics.

Btw... The 1/4" belly pan isn't moving even when I kinda slammed down near the edge. Still might reinforce it with the 1x1x1/8" angle whenever I get it. No rush on that.

This makes me want to actually start building my truck a little bit now that I'm going to have money

Too bad I'll be 1600 miles away from Moab here pretty soon

Think you could pull a 27 hour drive with the solid axle Chad?

Do eet! We had people from the east coast so I think you can make it.
If built right you can make the trip. I had no problems headed up to Moab, but on the way back I had some crazy "death wobble" due to no track/panhard bar. Come to find out that after putting in the leaf I took out from the front leaf packs my tie rods worked themselves in further into the arms and the nuts were a little loose. Making my track/panhard mounts now, glad I still have quite a bit of 1/4" plate left over from the belly skid (that I didn't use this year. Funny that I've used it at home).

Edit: I also broke in the front springs really well on this trip.

Nice! Glad you got it figured out. I've got plenty of death wobble experience from my moms f250. That thing is terrible.
