I decided to go with Tim Lyons upper and lowers , he will also do my rear end. He certainly gave me the best service over the phone !

so that was some work, i tried to keep as much of the factory floor as possible. So my question is on the top bar of this upper tq box do i run the bars straight up to the upper main hoop , or do i do an x bar up to the main hoop or do i tie this in somewhere else ?

Running straight bars (or X bars) from the upper TQ boxes (or upper TQ box cross bar) up to the top of the main hoop might make the main hoop it's self stronger, but not really do much for the upper TQ boxes. This is because under launch loading the rear housing pulls backward on the upper TQ boxes. So IMO that means any added upper TQ box bracing would generally need to attach/point to a frame and cage structure in a forward direction to fight the rearward pull/loading on the upper TQ boxes.

Thxs Dave for your input , are you suggesting 2 bars ? and would you rather tie those bars directly into the box or into the bar that ties the 2 boxes together ?

Yea, 2 bars each side to better triangulate everything.

Either way would probably be OK, which ever allows you to get a good/full weld on the weld joints. If you tie into the cross brace instead of directly to the upper TQ boxes you probably want to attach the bars as close to each TQ box as possible.

And don't forget the 2 short braces running from the rear wrap-around bars (mentioned earlier) down to the frame (or upper TQ boxes).

Might also want to be real careful if you Mig any added thick wall mild steel tube bracing (say .108" to .134" wall) directly to the upper TQ box's crossbar/crossmember if they made the crossbar out of thin wall 'moly.

Heat the thicker mild steel before you weld to thinner metal

If the 'moly tubing crossbar is like .083" wall, and if the added mild steel tube braces are also .083" wall, then don't worry about preheating anything before zipping it with the Mig. Just remember to lower the heat setting for .083 material, don't blast it with the machine cranked up for .134 wall stuff.

And even if the the 'moly tubing crossbar is .083" wall, and the added mild steel braces are thicker (like say .108 to .120" wall) you probably still don't have to worry about preheating if the thicker material is what gets fish-mouthed. That open edge of the fish-mouthed tubing should take on heat rather quickly even if it is a thicker wall.

Now if things were reversed & the crossbar was the thicker material and you were fish-mouthing thinner wall tube braces to it then that's when you might think about preheating the thicker material.

Looking good Nick!

Some guys also run bars straight up from the new torque box piece into the rear down bars. But that'll depend on you rear down bar width. Whatever you will be fine.

So we got the upper Tq boxes welded in , i also pulled back the factory floor to weld the top of the rails and seemed the floor back on the boxes, cut out the top of the floor so i have plenty of surface to tie the cage and the tq boxes together.
