    i have had 35s on my truck for almost 2 years, and have had no problems, yet. i plan on building a brace and putting it on, but im in no hurry as i have not had a problem with it yet.

    bolt in brace will stiffen up the steering a lot. you will love it and for sure notice it after the fact. not wasted money now.

    if not when the frame brakes you will say :doah: and wish you had after fixing it with all the work involved:wink1:


    bolt in will be fine if no cracks are found now.

    yeah, I definitely want to add the bolt in soon.. so damn pricey new tho, used would be a great alternative.. But I gotta tackle the weld in tommorrow first..

    Was that you that posted the frame pic with holes of a box ripped out?
