I plan on bolting the mounts to the frame. Interesting point with the shape of the mounts.

Years ago I said the same thing and last minute we welded them. I know your not a new comer to wheeling, but consider welding. It's simply stronger and I after seeing my x-member round out its boot holes, I wish I could weld that too. The sliders, I've never had a reason to pull them back off. Also if you haven't yet, welding your frame isn't a big deal. ;-)

We did a bunch of welding on the frame last year, not afraid to do that. If the mounts are going all the way across underneath, it would have to be removable. Otherwise the transfer case would have to come out through the top.

Ah I understand!

Rock sliders.

I didn't like the idea of them wrenching on the frame every time I came down on them, and they would probably end up contacting the body too. So I decided to go all the way across. The frame is too low to go straight across underneath, it would be too far below the body. So the idea was to make it come up at a 45 outside the frame, then straighten out again to position about an inch below the cab. As I see it come into place I don't like the clearance I'm losing, it will be protection though. I could skid plate it too (between the frame rails). Also coming out from the frame at a 45 could be something to grab rocks, where it was open before. I started thinking about just coming straight out from higher up on the mount angles, that would leave a 90 degree corner that might be more likely to grab stuff too.

Hhmmm

That piece you've got mocked up sure does hang down a lot. Is your frame boxed? A lot of those IH frames are right?

It doesn't hang down more than the transfer case, but it would be more area like that. Only the Scout frames were boxed.

Now that you mention it, you could use a tcase skid plate too :mrgreen:

Yeah, and one could be incorporated into this. I made some more progress today, my friend Bart came and looked at it. He liked it, he always wished he went heavier with his, and bolted instead of welded to the frame, he's had to reattach it. We decided to come straight out higher up on the angle irons, instead of going at a 45. I cut 45s on the leading edge of the bottom of the angle iron, and drilled for the cross pieces to attach. I also got one cross piece cut to length.

Made some more progress today, next I will position the 2x2 extensions on the angle iron. They're already cut, sliders are cut too. I put 45s in the bottom of them.

Post Re: Ed's 64 IH 1 ton body swap
Would it be possible to raise those cross members up to the bottom of the frame? Look like they are gonna hang you up ALOT. I fully understand the concept, but thats a good 6" of clearance lost

If that was possible they would be at the bottom of the frame. I'm not losing that much clearance at the transfer case, it's already down there. Other components are part way down too.

After laying under it I'm convinced it needs a skid plate before it goes wheeling, otherwise it'll be much more likely to hang up. That's my first priority for tomorrow, I can already take the measurements I need.

Rock sliders and skid plate are ready for the trip Thursday, will paint or have powder coated afterwards.

I bolted the extensions on so it would make positioning for welding easy, now the bolts can be a fail safe should the welds break.
