Welding skills?!?







How do you like the welds on my rear suspension mounts and shock mounts?

Thankfully this wasn't my work and it's all coming out!

Re: Welding skills?!?

A lot of trucks ive seen or bought have these quality welds holding a hitch receiver on. Always amazed me how they never fell off while towing?

It wasn't me. Although I'm not a great welder either. But I'm smart enough to pay people for jobs that I'm not comfortable doing myself.

It's being all cut out and replaced.
