HBDA-T2: Suspension & Chassis

Posted on Posted in HBDA-T2: 2010 Off-Road Trailer

Then the whole chassis is flipped over to align the axle for mounts.

Image

Image

Once aligned and mounts tacked in place I begin welding up the chassis.

Image

After welding I grind down the exterior welds.

Image

Image

Next I square up the tongue.

Image

Then weld the outside seams.

Image

Receiver tubing is squared up and tacked in place.

Image

The backside of the back tongue tubing is cut out, so I can weld and tie the rear of the receiver tube to the outside.

Image

Then I cut a 2×4 section to continue where the receiver tube ended.

Image

I clamp everything down and weld it all up.

Image

Back to the stair well.

Image

I flip over the chassis again and place it on jack stands. Then finish the stair well support. I angle the ends so there isn’t a hard edge.

Image

Base chassis complete.

Image

Image

Next I work on getting the axle square with the chassis.

Image

Then I weld up the spring perches.

Image

Image

Then toss on the 35″ BFG KM2’s.
