    Saw nothing wrong with your plate idea if you did it to all four sides. Might save just a little time on making all new tabs.

    have there option on filling this gap, adding plate on top and bottom, and/or making new tabs?
    A little bit more work but would certainly be stronger. Just a thought.

    The 1/4" plates will probably be okay but it would be better to fill the space between the parts and burn it in... maybe a piece of heavy wall pipe
    with the right O.D./I.D. split down the middle. A lot will depend on your welding skills.

    We're all cheering for you,

    Haha, my welding skills are beginner. Seams like the lower arms hold most of everything, top arms just pushes out on wheel to keep it upright. Even the tabs on the 2020 arms are beefed up on the bottom.

    That's a good observation but my concern was WRT side loading of the tire/wheel, especially when you put those big tires on it... keeping the wheel upright will be a lot harder to do. I do have a propensity to over engineer things.

    Thanks for sharing all of your good work,
    Mike

    I agree that there is a lot of pressure. My concerns are with the thick to then metal welding. Should be fine, I will get some similar metal and practice some.

    Someone could make some custom uppers with some adjustability in them and buy the $35 lowes to make a kit. Each arm was only $30 to $35 each. Think the axle shaft was about the same.

    I have a full time military job and have a rental property I've been dealing with, along with a kid that's about to start driving so working on getting another car. She doesn't like my $700 car I drive every day.

    Anyways, I'm busy. Getting this done before the end of the month I hope, get a good weekend ride in, then time to chop this cage before some bigger tires.

    Thank you for your service. And yes, our little girls can be rather demanding.

    Finding some bushing issues with the satv ports is slowing me down. Not a huge issue but I'm not putting this thing back together this way. Working the fix now.
