Here is my first real use of my welder. I took 1/4 wall dom tubing and went from the frame to the bottom of my track bar bracket. This should assure the bracket shouldn't rip πŸ˜€

Don't laugh at my wels either πŸ˜€ They may not be pretty, but I know they will hold 😈

John, you will notice in the 1rst photo what a steering box brace looks like. It is made to prevent what happened to yours.

Easy on the weld comments now. I was checking out some of your welds on your Jeep lol lol lol lol

Just kidding, and thanks for the tip. I didn't have much room up where I was welding and had to do it with one had and on the passender side, I had to use my left hand. That sucked....

I am still trying to figure my wire speed out. My welder is the one with auto set. It is supposed to set the wire speed for you, but on this job, I was trying to slow the feed down so I set it at a speed of 6 instead of auto.
