Is your rear brackets welded to the axle or just to the UBolt?

Today the fat lady is singing. I finished the front brackets and did some testing, I drove it around the property up and down hills and some pretty steep ditches testing the anti rotation. The tracks never rubbed the body, everything seems to be working out with the original set up. After running it hard nothing broke or bent. I will continue to play with it around here and now cleaning it up. Next I will change the oil and tune it up. after it warms up the idle is set a little low at 500 rpm I will re set it at 800 rpm, after that its time to put it on the trailer and wait for snow. The van is going to be great for the winter cabin trips, at 1500# easy to tow so I don't have to store it up there that saves $110.00 a month. The room on the inside is great, plenty of room for the wife, dog and everything else. I still have the winch from the Suzuki but the remote and controls burned up.I plan to fabricate new bumpers with receivers so I can plug in a winch or tow something. I saw another set of used Camso tracks on an equipment auction, if they can be had cheap maybe there will be another Suzuki in the future. Having a truck up there that can handle the terrain was very helpful. A dump bed would be nice.
