Front shackle mount
« on: February 11, 2015, 11:54:00 AM »
Number 2 son (Corporate Pilot) wanted new mounts on the front of his 11 DMax this is what we came up with

We used 2"x2" tube and 1/2"x2" flat. Number 1 son(Production Welder) is welder, fabricator, mechanic, Sport Pilot, jack of all trades



We welded everything up slid them in to mark bolt hole locations



Then we took the mounts over to a friends house with a mill to drill out the holes



Then slid in 1"id tubing welded that up , covered front with 1/8", finished all welds then off to powder coating



Old / New

Installation


Finished Product
