Looks great.
The price of items in the store doesn't correlate directly with the farmers price.
We also raise beef.

Thanks guys.
Still beatin on it.

OI- That's for sure.
We are trying to maximize our return on our beef calves. In it with my oldest son in Texas.

I bought a registered Wagyu bull two years ago and put him on 25 Angus cows.
Hoping to contract 23 head [Keeping 2 for our freezers] of yearlings coming off of wheat pasture into a F1 Wagyu program going into the feed lot.

The if in the plan is the processing plants during the Covid thing.

Default Frame....

This frame was out of square by 3/8" when I checked it before starting the frame shortening. I thought that was a little excessive. I messed with it for what seemed like forever, got it within an 1/8" and called it good.
Got it welded up and fish plated today.

Now I can set the cab on the frame and make body mounts.

Frame looks good.
A 4x4 frame from around my neck of the woods would be beat to #%&$.
It's called square if the drivers door stay shut when you drive down the road.

I know what you mean beat to #%&$. Heavy on the $$$$$
The front end on this one is a pain in the butt. It had a cheap and badly designed lift installed on it that I'm taking off.

Who'd a thought you can't buy a new pair of stock upper control arms for a '95 Dakota 4WD?

Ratchet straps, cable come a longs, Cut, Heat, Beat and Weld!!!
What ever works and gets the job done.
If I was going to do this kind of thing for a living,
I would build a frame table.

I' used the same methods. And they work just fine.

Default Mock up....

My helper and I got the cab set on the frame and after some slicing and dicing for some clearance for the fuel tank we got it and the bed where I want it. I'll build an off set in the floor under the rear seat to cover the hole.

Now we can make the mounts for the cab and bed. Then I can install the 3rd door on the drivers side.

STILL BEATIN ON IT!! And having fun.
