Our friends at M&H machine shop gave me the signal that the back axle for the little Jeep was ready this afternoon. They do beautiful work! It was a heavy duty work of art and will easily handle anything we can throw at it! The pieces went together in minutes. I wasted no time and quickly welded up a subframe and mounting brackets. I bolted the axle in place and then slid the assembly into place under the Jeep. A few minutes of welding made it permanent and I could take the little four by four off the jack stands at last. I still have to mount the jackshaft, hook up the throttle and brake linkages, place the chains on the sprockets and check everything over one last time. Then it'll be time for the test drive!!
