That's it for tonight. Even though I had mocked it all up, I found that the upper link angles had to be changed to use the "ears" on the 8.8. When I got the angles right...I found that the upper bars would collide with the mufflers. Ugghh! Of course, working around the mufflers was making it take forever in the first place! So...cut the mufflers out, now have tons of room. But, of course, the change in link angles meant a different mounting point. Different mounting point means build new brackets. New brackets have to be "ugly" to do their job. So, now I'll have to add some gussets and bracing (that aren't really necessary) just to make the brackets look "good". What was I saying earlier about a "bolt-in" option?
Supposed to deliver this truck weeks ago...and now I'm basically starting at the half way point all over again.
