I had to drop the steering rack to finish welding the spare tire strap eyelet and the bottom of a couple tubes.
While it was on the lift and taken apart, I did some prep for the skid plate mounting. The stock lower control arm support is weak. I cut them off and will replace with 1.5” tube that will bolt to the stock mount, with an extra bolt back to the bottom of the forward cage leg/plate.
I added some stitch welds to the stock mounts also.
