Default Frame notch

Got my first winter project done. Did a 2" frame notch. Had to redo the inside frame rail. The stock frame went in for spring clearance. The frame is now 1 1/4" wide. I will be reinforcing it when I install the chromoly cage. I will have to move the shocks inboard and get 6.5" back spaced wheels.
