Burroughs starts the TIG-welding of the substructure with a Miller Synchrowave 250 machine and chromoly welding rod. This lower section will house the transmission and transfer case, will support the lowest skidplate of the belly, and also act as the frame mounting points for most of the suspension links. In order to completely weld these components, everything is clamped together and multiple small tack welds are burned in at the seams.
