Guess, I should have started out with i built wheeled a cucv for about 6 years, where axles, trans a nd doubler came frome. Made my own double shear hysteer on stock plated knuckles, used lugnut brake conversion then and spent way to much on axle shafts. For the front, started build of a cheap truss. For the rear did disc swap and not much else.

Are you going to plate the frame? IMO the additional stiffness will benefit you greatly in getting your suspension to work properly and consistently. I know the cage will help but it is really only as good as the foundation it is welded to.

Yes sir, plan is to plate and box it with 3/16" with keyed simi vertical plates, 1/4" will be used at suspension attachment areas. Might have forgot to mention frames from a k10 I had siting around

Been trying to get the motivation to work on this again, kinda hit a mental wall few months back. Been buying parts up, was fixing to order tubing, then covid hit me, and had me out of work for 3 weeks.
