Ripped the rear subframe and gas tank out.



Welding up the subframe.




Completed beefed up and painted. I welded in 1x2" tube bracing, Welded the rear pumpkin mount to the subframe and brace as well. boxed in the LCA mounts. and laid a few beads were the factory didn't. It should stiffen something up. if not it stiffens me up just looking at it.

I've always been under the impression that after an object squishes through the rubber or poly then comes to a sudden stop is when stuff breaks. not giving it any room to accelerate and collide into another solid object should prevent failure. making it where it doesn't move just like solid motor/tranny mounts helps 60ft times. yes it may fatigue metal but that's why I beefed up the subframe. I'm also getting solid aluminum diff bushings made for the front mounts. but if the masses agree that it will probably break then what I may do is weld two strong tabs off the bars I welded beside the diff to a couple bolt holes on the diff cover to help support it as well.
