    C Gussets - Water Drain?

    Hi everyone,

    Today is gusset day for me, and after looking at countless threads, I can't say I've found a consistent indication of where/how much to weld.

    It seems to me, that most people end up fully closing off the bottom of the upper gusset, and since it seems they leave the vertical parts un-welded, that there is a significant chance of water being trapped. I've also seen about 100 different ways people have done it, which seems strange to me, when it should be a straightforward "color by numbers " exercise, if there were any good instructions on where to weld.

    So, does anyone have the definitive "weld here" picture, or at least recommendations for it? EVOs instructions don't even say. Is the water drain issue an actual issue?

    Thanks!

    I just looked at mine. They are open on the bottom so they drain water. Just don't do what a shop did in another thread and welded them on upside down!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
