I spent some time this morning mocking up the "new" frame pieces on the Bushmaster. I have most everything just tacked into place, but I like where it is going. I replaced the rear subframe area with new tubes, and triangulated them down to the main engine cradle. I also built new upper shock mounts, that tie into the joint of the seat and triangulation tubes.
Now I need to get serious about new wheels and tires. I'm thinking about the Shinko 244 tires in 3.5 and 4.1 sizes front and rear. The big rear might be a touch tight, so I may settle on 3.5 all around.
