We had mocked up the rear suspension and started on the front suspension in last month's coverage, so the next step was finishing up both. Our axles were built at Dynatrac, but a lot of work installing brackets was still required to be done at All Pro. Mike Schoffstal is the head fabricator at All Pro, and when you combine his years of SCORE desert and CORR short-course off-road racing fabrication with All-Pro owner John Bundrant's years of rockcrawling competition and design, you're sure to get a bulletproof suspension. On the rear axle a tall truss was built to attach the upper triangulated links. To attach the truss to the axle Schoffstal used our Hobart Tigmate TIG-welder.
