Then the whole chassis is flipped over to align the axle for mounts.
Once aligned and mounts tacked in place I begin welding up the chassis.
After welding I grind down the exterior welds.
Next I square up the tongue.
Then weld the outside seams.
Receiver tubing is squared up and tacked in place.
The backside of the back tongue tubing is cut out, so I can weld and tie the rear of the receiver tube to the outside.
Then I cut a 2×4 section to continue where the receiver tube ended.
I clamp everything down and weld it all up.
Back to the stair well.
I flip over the chassis again and place it on jack stands. Then finish the stair well support. I angle the ends so there isn’t a hard edge.
Base chassis complete.
Next I work on getting the axle square with the chassis.
Then I weld up the spring perches.
Then toss on the 35″ BFG KM2’s.
