this winter since i now have a garage and my old bag setup was beyond ghetto i decided to redo everything. along with that i am ditching my gas tank in favor of a fuel cell. putting everything under th ebed. wirebrushing and cleaning the whole frame for paint or por-15(havent decided yet) and boxing in the frame and building new crossmembers for the tank and cell. i started a while ago and until now ive only had a few hours a week to work on it. so here it goes..

heres where i started after i ripped everything out. you can see where i started wirebrushing on the drivers side and then how it looked on the passenger side. big difference huh?

after that i went and grinded my notch all nice and smooth and cut off the bottom that was hanging over from when we did it. we hung it over so we could weld the bottom of it as well. the notch was the only thing on my air ride that wasnt ghetto the welds were awesome and it came out real good
