Looks good so far, only thing i might add is some sort of cross bracing on the shackles, like welding a small piece of tube or left over on the inside of the shackles. Look at a pict of the warriors if you don't understand what i'm saying.
 






ya, lots of people run with out them......
 












x2 on the cross brace but only if you plan to wheel the vehicle - if not, then dont worry about them. off camber situations is an example of when shackles take lateral load and therefore should have a cross brace.
 






whell i think ill just weld some in for good luck , no harm, and i got the stuff...
 






got them cut , ill weld them in tonight....
