Default Need pics, front body with Z type lift.

Just needing to get some inspirational photos, I have to fab up something to attach front body to. I have some scrap aluminum and steel to play with for a bracket, but needing some variety of ideas on finishing the area that the bumper used to wrap around. the 6" z lift puts the front attaching points up in mid air. Have to bolt something up off the bumper mounts to reach up 6"

Mine is part of the brush guard that covers that area up. I'll try to get a pic of the front of mine if the weather permits.

I made a plate out of steel that was the 9"s that covered the front bumper the from the top of the old bumper mounting plate I tapered the new ate outwards to the inside measurement of the cowl. Then back. My nose plate bolts to the original bumper hole and to the top of the shock support tubing. Then I defamed the brush guard to mount to the top if the new face plate. if you pic the plate in your head then find center. On the bottom it's like 9 1/2 inches wide and up 3 1/2 (I think) then that point tapers out to the inner width of the cowling mounting Wich I think was like 12 3/4 wide then a break in the plate to go to the shock tubing. I'll try to post a few pic of mom tomorrow. (cant do it from my phone)

Thanks for the pics, that's a perfect preview of what I'm going to be looking at with mine, little tires and all. Right now it's just a shiny flat plate with an offset bent into it. I'll try to get a pic of what I've got now, it's a bone chilling 11 degrees out there right now. looks like you made your own front Z bracket, is that all you did in the rear is extend the shackles? or did you flip the axle housing. Actually no it looks like you didn't do anything with the shackles just the little tires make it look funny I guess. I really like your enclosure.

leaf over for the rear. and bock up to right hight. i made the top plate (wich is a copy of the plate that was allready there but it got moved to the bottom because of the brakes. and made the rise out of 1 1/2 x 3 x 1/4 box tube, bolted (for now) with all thread rod because i have not found grade 8 flat top u-bolts long enough yet but when i do i'm going to swap them out. also dropped the front motor cradle 3 inches to help keep motor level

heres a pic of that front motor cradle drop. it also gave me a new issuse with the air intake tube, but in other threads i've found help to this issue and ordered a different intake to help modify it different after i do that i'll add pic's of that as well.(still waiting on the mail for it), so only because i already had all the steel and have the welders and plazma cutter, and all the labor myself, because of buying the grade 8 bolts and the intake i now have $50bucks in my 7" lift,

On the Fly, you might need to put an "X" brace between the two Z lift brackets to keep them from folding to the side.

That airtube routing problem does create a challenge and it seems to never get done the same way twice.
I agree on the X brace for the Z brackets, but would have to be a bolt on assembly, the angle would make it impossible to install or remove once welded in place. I have to come up for a brace for mine. it's the same design.
Looking at your pictures a custom fitting rubber inner fender splash skirt or sort of apron for the front wheelwells to hide the frame and chassis uglys would be trick, but some guys like that stuff to show.
