Steel arrived Thursday. I cut the tubing up to size.

Friday. I drilled holes on 4 cross tubes so I can weld on the threaded bungs I made on the lathe. (Bed bolting locations).

Saturday. Laid the tubes on the bed.

Last night. Tacked some of them together.

Gonna start cutting some more tubing for the wheel arches today.

Then I ll start taking pics.

Same. My rockers were actually in good shape but I'm cheap and couldn't justify the $ for bolt-ons that hang low, aren't as strong, and might end up damaging the rockers overtime anyway. Plus I like the frustration of fabbing things on the Jeep.
