    Well I couldn't find any for the '72 for less than like $150 /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif They used to be way cheaper. So I went to a local resto. shop here in Snohomish. Got em for $99.99 to my door. The name of the place is Pick-ups Northwest. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Mudhog, ORD has your mounts for $99.99. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I got the mounts and pucks in /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif What a pain in my neck!!! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif It rides wwwwwwaaaaayyyy better, even with two of the mounts/pucks missing. I had to cut the rear bumper off and loosen the front bumper. I will relocate the front one I think. The rear I think I will fab up a new one with my old carrier. I just can't decide weather or not to cut my rear 1/4 panels at the body line.......
    Oh ya I looks way better too /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gifI gained like 2" in some areas. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I took some pictures of the install too.
