So if you weld up the OG fill hole and add one like Tommy did there on the top how do you know when it is full? Or do you just add 2 qts (Or whatever the book calls for) and call it good?

I still have the factory fill hole on the 3rd member...fill til it flows out...but I am adding a new fill port to the top of the housing to make things easier

So I got more work done today, unfortunately it is my last day of quarantine (yeah I got the 'Rona..dgaf) anywho...
Time:4 hours
PPE: jeans, boots, sweatshirt, beanie, muffs, safety glasses
Weather: 48*... cold as fuck! I'm with @the bodj I hate the cold! I wear jeans year round!
Tools: JD2 bender, grinder, tape measure, putty knife, piece of shit "back up" drill, 1.75 hole saw, and grinder with cut off disc
Material: approx 10' of 1.75x 0.120 DOM
Music: heavy metal
Explitives: "piece of shit x3" referring to the back up drill
Beverages: 6 Coors lights
Progress: got both of the floor tubes made, still need to sleeve them...I think I'm just gonna run a 90 out the back to the frame and cap the ends. Should clear the links no problem. Also scraped off the rest of the factory sound deadening shit or wtf that shit is.

nice and tight to door seal!

You can miter tubes out the back up to top of frame. Doesn't have to be quite 90* either. There is plenty of space for links. The only issue I have ran into would be coil over clearance at full droop...

That is kinda the plan! I can't remember did you angle those tubes out the back up? I was looking at just running them parallel to the ground. This will also keep them really close to the back of the cab
