    Looking good man! Keep up the great work. Are you still using the Toyota cab?

    Not many updates....it’s been a rough couple months. However, I did get the rear truss. I went with an Artec. I have not yet welded it into place. I have notched one side of the frame in the rear for clearance of the rear axle. Next up is to finish notching the rear part of the frame and notching the frame for the front axle. Then get the truss for the front axle and get both axles set in place under the frame. Then install the final fish plates and get the welds done on the frame.......it’s a slow process.....

    Sorry fellas...didn’t intend to leave you hanging. I haven’t been hanging around on the forum much lately..... not much has changed with the project , I have the front truss now on hand. I also went with the artec for the front. Full truss with full hydro mount. I’m starting to feel the need to put some time into it. I’ve probably got a whole weekends worth of cutting/ welding that maybe I can get done in the next month or so. Hope y’all been doing good!

    Oh hell yeah! I’ll see if I can line up a taco truck to park in the front yard and get a 53’ refer trailer load of corona!! All jokes aside I’ll see if I can nail down a couple Saturdays and see what works best with the misfit black sheep crew and get everyone together to shoot the shit, eat some good food and maybe get a little work done!! I’m missing hanging out with the crew!

    We need to test out the new tap trailer, keeps the kegs at a nice 34 degrees, might have a few flavors to "test" with.

Got the rear truss welded up and installed. And finished notching the frame in the rear. Also installed the front upper link mounts for the 4 link.

    Man, I remember a Member that started his own frame [Years back], & we kicked his sorry ass out of the Club.:lol:
    But I think your Safe. You've gotten a Lot further on the frame, than he did! Original story would be good for a camp fire & a fee drinks!:rockon:

    Well that’d be awesome but you always disappear to a hotel right after the ride!
