    I would have a reputable shop, like Brucker, perform the repair as your suspension is a critical component.

    WOW! That is more than a broken weld, that is a broken bracket. Based on what I see, I would question everything else on that conversion.

    Another vote for Aaron. He is not only a professional with an engineering degree and liability insurance, he is the sole proprietor of his business: You won't have some shop flunky working on your equipment.

    Agreed with the failure here.
    This leaves much concern for the rest of the parts.
    For use a good reputable shop with experience in this kind of stuff.

    Iím having it looked over tomorrow. They want to check every weld to make sure nothing else fails on me. Definitely know not to use built4fun 4x4 ever again. As the owner said ď oh that sucksĒ not my fault
