    I've read about this in the past and saw it on a cab truck in Tellico. Does anybody here run them? There's so much flex in my long wheelbase frame that my cab is coming apart at the seams. I really need a cage tied in to the frame, but my wallet can't take much more shock right now.

    Thanks,
    Will

    its a good idea if you dont have a big body lift. if you have a big body lift, bolts get expensive, because they can get pretty long..... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I had a problem with crushing radiater supports. I made a spring mounted support, that way the rad support can let the frame flex. but i only did that part. The links are to the photo's in my photo album. rad support rad support 2
