I'm shooting for a final weight of 2k pounds. The back end is already light enough to lift by hand. I hope to do it withought lexan windows if I can.

Thanks guys! Nick I say go for it on the wheel tubs, you may have to do something with the air conditioning line on the passenger side.

I got lazy, and need to buy the materials for the traction bar links before I weld the tube and tabs on. I should be able to get the wheel tubs in by then, so progress should go quickly.

I've always had my reservations about traction bars, but I like your approach to it. If I'm reading it correctly your replacing the lower Rad and triangulating the K-Member to the front mount location?

I'm not a fan of the hellaflush or slammed look (if it's not on bags), but I like your approach to custom engineering. Good job for keeping it "cheap" to boot!

That is exactly what I am doing. I am using a sturdy 1.5" od .120 wall Dom tube to replace the lower radiator support. It was flimsy so this adds strength and function. The bars basically keep the control arms in their natural range of motion instead of flopping around under the hard forces of acceleration.
