    With any more than 3/4 tank of gas, the frame actually sits on the panhard bar mount and axle. Obviously I didn’t trim the frame enough to clear the panhard mount on the axle but the frame will be c-notched soon for some actual suspension travel

    What is all that white stuff?

    Man, I love how your Burb looks.

    If you trim more will that alleviate the clearance issue?

    What style notch will you be going with?

    Snow that I was too lazy to clean off lol I LOVE the way it looks but it rides like absolute dog shit and I keep breaking belts in my tires since they’re pretty much the only sort of suspension I have now

    The frame needs more cutting and hammering for the panhard bar

    it’s getting a round notch. I bought a 5.5” OD .250 wall pipe to be welded in place 16B51716-1F6F-4ED1-B1D2-07214FEA4EE6.jpeg 1BA5D22C-C078-4F5E-B438-2B58A02E54DB.jpeg

    Hahaha, its been few years since I've seen that white stuff around here. Don't miss it :)

    That absolutely sucks. What springs are you using out back? Do you have helpers?

    I'm pretty sure I have a piece of DOM 5.5" x 1/2 if you want a little more beef.

    It’s a 6” drop spring but there’s about 700lbs in audio in the back so that dropped it another 1”

    how wide is the piece of tubing? I was trying to find 1/2” wall but couldn’t find anything smaller than 6.5” OD and that’s too big

    THAT looks great. Any plans for upgrading or aftermarket wheels?

    I had 24’s on it but the drop requires nothing bigger than a 30.5” tire, which makes the tire very small. I broke one of my wheels the first day I had them on the truck so I went back to 20’s with a 255/50/20, which is a factory Range Rover tire so they’re fairly common and cheap

    Ahhh I gotcha. Now I know how to level out mine ;)
    Does it take up the majority of the space out back?

    How wide do you need it? I can cut it to the desired width :)
