    These questions make me wonder if you should be welding to a frame. Why can't you bolt it on? What type of vehicle is this going on?

    Neither one. Weld clips to the 8" flat and bolt it I to the web of the chassis

    Yea thats what I was leaning towards. Got everything prepped for tomorrow to weld in-place. What size rods would you recommend? I don't weld 1" enough to be familiar.

    out of curiosity what size mig would one need to weld something that thick and if I had one that big , then which would be preferred mig or stick?

    Thanks for input...
