Call any off the Off road shops there and they can do it. Also call some of the fab shops around town. They will do it also.

To bad you weren't close to MS b/c i would help you install them. It really isn't too bad except the gas tank crap.
Thanks, Junkie! Great photo! Now I see how they mount...

What method did you use to get the stock hangers off. Today I started mine but never got them off. I drilled/grinded the rivet heads off but the hanger won't budge. I also tried to punch the rivits out but they are in there! Should I just drill all the way through? Thanks in advance.

I drilled my rivits out, than used a BFH and centering punch and knocked them through. I didn't drop the tank, so be careful. I also just used a small bit to start the hole, and than a larger one to drill off the head.

I tried drilling,but it went faster grindng.Watch out for heat and the gas tank.Then pounded out with hammer and punch.I had to drop the tank to get the new bolts.It took a whole weekend but to do the swap.Most of the time is in tearing it apart.It went back together real easily.
Iwent the easy route and used a torch, but you can grinthe out then drill though the rivets the rest of the way... it will take a while though. Best bet is to put a torch to it.
