    I have solid wire. Got a 12.5 lb spool of .30 and a 2 lb spool of .25 wire. I just ran out of shielding gas and went to my last resort Flux core.

    It fell apart just drooping a few inches. :anonymous:

    So I welded up the extended splined add-on from trail gear which I still need to flex out to see how it does. :cool: 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 :laugh:

    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?:D

    Adam it's always a pleasure wheeling with you and your knowledge of the trails in Moab.

    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. :D

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