    i will make a post when it's done and make a link to all photo's. I expect the truck back in about a week and 1/2. I know it's NOT a priority for the guy putting it in. he does a ton of work for our shop!

    this kit ties into the floor, but we are going further! also boxing sections of frame. I broke my drivers front rail, just before the front shackle.

    So I imagine this comes in piece and unpainted. What size is the tubing?

    unassembled and unpainted. We set it into place, it seems to fit well. the tube ends are all pre notched and angle cut were needed.

    It comes with plates for the floor...They sent me info on there stff and told meit is on sale to till May 109 for an 8pt and 159 for a 10 pt. thats 40 bucks off whoo hoo. I dont know what model that covers but i was refrencing my 69. Also i dont like the bar that goes across between the front and read seat.I tseems to me this would make the rig way less functional as a daily driver. I want something thatll protect but still not be a hassle. Maybe if you can omit installing this one piece it would still work well and nt impact the rigidity too badly.
