Thanks Holmes.

A short video on the front axle slop. Hardly any. I hope it stays this way.

Got some work done. All holes for axle tubs are drilled and tapped. I screwed up one tube and clocked it 90 degrees to fix it.

Also.. I have 2 of these txt shafts that oscilate... Might use on on a new skid. Even though im halfway done with the current shaft. I just need to cut off a bit. Ill wait and see till my links are set up.

I opted for set screws in the chub mounts (not for the chubs) and the link mounts. These will work very well! I can red loctite them in the tube and plastic.

Onto some pics.

I would also like to add..

Im enjoying this build a whole lot. Ive actually thought about building what we could call a "super shafty" basically a sportsman rig with super class measurements and a full body. Im deffinatly going to try that out. Maybe with this chassis or a V1 unstuck. Im not sure yet. Ill wait till my sideplates get here.

Another note.. I have yet to design the rear cantilever setup. I need to do some extensive math with spring rates and some geometry on paper. This will help me to decide on either running a body or a chassis topper.

Axles are 11.75 inches from hex pin to hex pin.

Ill be designing the cantilever setup for the rear and ill also be doing some chassis braces/ front shock mounts.

Rig will run a body. For only one reason. The overall body height i can drop lower onto the frame. Body might drag on some rocks, but the cab height will be different in relation to a bodiless supers height top to botom of skid. My body will be lower than the skid at the bottom. Plus the body might be lighter (and less expensive) than some cf plates and hardware.
