I've been watching this since the beginning, and I wanted to know if your front axle is welded solid.

Yes- With no rear suspension, having the front axle pivot makes a big difference. That bumper is THICK! You won't be hurting it anytime soon. Hey- what size are those front tires?

I thought too, looked at it today an the front end is down like a inch or so, so not level, like leaning towards the front still

That's better! My new fronts are 16" also- the diameter increase does help with the rough terrain.

I was THIS close to doing the hub cut/weld that you did... And then I just used the trailer hubs, spindles, and wheels...
