We then took the included tube and found it was about 1-inch too short to reach the frame. We cut and notched our own. Make sure to pull the bushings out before welding as that polyurethane can’t take the heat. Sometimes we convert our Lincoln into a welding table in this fashion to put parts together off the Jeep. The bottom plate gives us a table while the vertical plate blocks the wind. Just be careful to not put too much heat into the bottom plate (it should never get too hot to touch).
