      That will look cool. Nice wheel choice in the bottom picture.

            Cut the tubs out and cut the frame for the relocation kit. The plan is to use the factory inner and make a new outer tub. 20180917_180149.jpg 20180917_180153.jpg 20180917_182337.jpg 20180917_180353.jpg

            Did you cut the frame for the front spring hanger?
            Looks like even after boxing it will be weaker?

            No it's still there. Just cut it as close as possible. 20180917_180345.jpg

            Why the cut? Was the frame damaged?

            No, the new box gets welded in there to mount the front of the leaf springs

            That's what I thought but just wasn't sure.

            Good idea! I'm gonna do something very similar.

            Thanks!
