    Been busy as hell today. I had an emergency procedures sim, where they just throw stuff at you for hours and you handle it, yada, yada, then went to chem class. I'm beat, but I couldn't just relax when I got home, so I did a little mod to my CUCV shackle mounts. I don't remember where I saw it, but someone on the board here did it first, so credit to that person, :bow: but I think they turned out pretty good. I'm getting them powdercoated tomorrow.

    Looks good. Where'd you get the curved piece? Did you beat that out on something or did you cut it out of some pipe?

    Looks much better that way. Very clean. I did the same thing, just I welded one side and then beat it down to fit and sprayed them with bedliner.
