    Q: Are the bolts supplied in the brace kit that retain the steering box long enough to accomodate the weld-in patch kit as well?

    Yes, it all fits great

    :)

    Seattle K5 helped me with the welding and brace installation. The plates fit well and the brace installation was straight forward. We did have a bit of difficulty getting the steering box back on - it just took some fiddling.

    If I remember correctly the directions that came with mine said that if you have a weld on brace as well you hafta get bolts that are 1/4" longer or something to that effect. Not to steal your thread but I want to add a weldo n brace as well and was wondering if i do hafta get longer bolts, will just regular bolts from a hardware store that are the same grade work?
