guys who work with metal are kinda funny like that. I reference the above post, by 4x4 Welder, as proof :- ) BTW, i like his solution too, but it makes it a tad heavier. Safer, for the off-road.. but not as advantageous for the sreet performance.

I used to drive a 1986 GL Wagon called 'The Red Rocket'. I paid $250 for it in September and drove it until March before one of the front axles failed. I never checked the underside of the car before March, because the doors and rockers were in reasonably good shape (a little rusty, but not too bad).
When I went to jack up the car, I put the jack under the frame rail (I never used the rockers because they looked a little weak, and I was going to put a jackstand under the engine up front). The rail looked okay, so I started to lift the car. I had the car in the air, and I went to the garage to get a jackstand. When I came back, the car was on the ground.
I figured that the jack was crappy and was leaking, so I pumped the jack a few more times until I heard some crunching. Then I looked under the car.
The jack had punched through the frame rail and was pushing the floor of the car up into the passenger compartment.
Anyways, I drove that car to my farm that day. It was the last time I ever drove it on a public road. It's cut into pieces now, waiting to be scrapped.
