    Firestone wheels

    Well they are gone,stolen during the week I was working in NM. I was out there at night looking for other parts when I saw them a week later gone and I got to call the sheriff's dept to do a theft report with a long time friend. Hopefully they will be found but I'm not holding my breath.

    Oversizing Shock Insert during welding

    kind of off track but if you decide to change the dimension to a larger one you can use shock shims to get the desired width.

    Building a CNC router???

    we have a ton of servo motors and some of the read scales you may be able to use,the question will be what speed are you going to make the cuts at?servo speed is going to be an issue as well as travel lenghth versus that.

    full underbody mud flap...

    looks good,and yes spraying off the flap wil be a lot easier then spraying off the rear of the truck as well as less rock damage to everything behind it.anyone behind you is going to hate the extra dust but thats their problem.

    eliminating balljoints on D44 beams..?

    i have always added a plate that goes from the thinnest part of the beam to as close to the lower ball joint as possible,it creates sort of a stress riser at the end of the beam but welding all of the pressed plates together helps also.the straps you added will help under compression but may not...
