    What year model Hardbody? On the D21 with TX10 transfer case, it has a bash plate. If it has taken a hit, it warps, and could end up rattling if one of the "mounting ears" has cracked off. When I...

    Re: Welding machine for R998

    One of the reasons I grind off excess, is to see if the weld has filled up properly. I admit to be a crappy welder, and my welds are far from even height across the top. If I find any gap, or fine...

    Thats what I explained right in the beginning. Most people do not understand why "industrial" welders are so much more expensive. This is one of the main advantages.
