We removed all the body biscuits all the way around the car.We tooks bolts and washers and tighten them down to were the body touch the frame.Use a good impact and suck that baby down tight.When welding the cage there were a few spots we spot welded body to frame.This makes the car very ridgid.

Take the rubber mounts out. With the body raised off the frame (2X4s across will do). Cut 1" X 3" holes with a torch in the area over the frame rails. Then drop it down and weld it every where you can. If you get 1 1/2" sq tubing pieces, 4" long, and weld to frame first the body can be shoved back another 7/8" for a touch more rear weight. SLEEPY
