Figured I'd post a little bit of an update. I've almost completed the fuel cell mount and now I'm moving onto my links. The swaybar is in its final position just needs finishing touches and mounts for the rear end

Those links look good! Why did you mount your links directly off the front of the axle as opposed to below it? I assume you haven't noticed any ill effects from it.

Thanks man, lots of hours lol. I bought the rear end already tabbed. I'm not sure of the exact benefits of ethier but I do get a little ground clearance with this setup

Digging the links!!! Makes me want to try making some myself

What size tube and thickness? Any internal ribbing? Or just the side and top plates?

So, the taller side plates and overlays are only 1/8" cold rolled?

Top plate is 3/16" I assume the internal ribs are 3/16" too.

(I thought the taller side plates underneath the overlay looked like 3/16 ... like the top plate? Eyes must be failing me)
