Every AJ's build I've seen is free-handed plasma cut (or cut off wheel), hand ground and "welded to fit".

Very little similarity other than the basic term "radius arm suspension".
My van was recently converted at AJ's, all brackets bolted to the frame.

Good! In the early days of their business, they welded everything to the frame.
