    Don't make fun of my welding... I have been welding forever but I have old brackets shoved up in there cuz i couldnt get to them with a cut off wheel or a saw zaw so I had a tough time getting to the brackets and making good welds... just had to pick and choose spots to weld... If u look on the bar that holds the bottom mount... you can see where i had to weld in a piece to make it have more of an angle, and u can actualy see that i can weld lol...

    Compressed u can see how it comes together weird but i can't figure out why... I havn't had any problems with bags blowing or anything so I'm going to let it ride for right now



    Filled... For those of you who are thinkin about bagging a 4x4 make sure u angle the top and the bottom plate... I made the top mount level and the bottom crooked... which made the top want to bow and not bow right... hopefully the picture will easily explain that...



    That's the center consol I made for my switches... It sucks having a switch box moving around in the truck so I just did that

    One thing though, i would keep a close eye on the bag though with it laying against the lca when aired out it may rub a hole through it.

    it would definately work.. although youll probably have to pie cut the uppers to get a good ball joint angle or make tubulars. also youll probably get some bumpsteer unless you flip your tie rods..that would take some machine shop work
