    I beefed up my frame where the tranfer case cross member bolts up because the spacers that I put between the cross member and frame caused a crack. I put a heavy guage piece of flat bar on top of the bottom lip of the frame along with big body washers on all the bolts and nuts.

    I cut about 4-5"s off the back of mine to get the "Sapper" built bumper up as close to the body as possible /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
