Ouch! You could also wrap those brackets around the frame to gain a lot of strength.

fixed everything last night with some help from my brother. I made a new bracket design as I should have from the beginning... patched frame and installed new shock.... we couldn't get springs off the bent shock with a spring compressor or any other way, so we tried to plasma cut the shock shaft- couldn't fit the cutter in-between springs.. next up sawzall which melted the blades instantly... lastly ended up hacksawing hardened shock shafts forever...

Hey how to you like the Trepadors ? A few of us up here have been thinking about running them on our trail trucks in the 37s.

Cheers

the trepadors are by far the best tire I have ever ran, they are unreal on the rocks and do very very well even in mud. another tire to try also is the creepy crawler.

Very nice work as always. Love seeing someone on here pushing the capabilities of a Rover. Actually going beyond the capabilities, breaking stuff then fixing it, haha

So rad your wife is helping cut metal!

FIXED Seat belt mounts... my bracket wasn't working how I wanted it to so I threw it in the garbage and added a 2nd bar to achieve the correct belt angle...

also fixed my motor mounts... they were starting to collapse the super strong series frame... lol so I added .187 plate in a few places around frame to beef it up then re-welded mounts back on....

cool truck but don't blame LR engineers for your failure to triangulate and account for transfer of forces.

You put a v8 engine out on the end of a 2" high and 8 or so inch-long mount arrangement/assembly butt-welded to a 3/32" piece of flat steel and blame the guy who drew up the frame 60 years ago when it stats to move on you??

lol, indeed...kids these days
