    No idea. Lol.

    Sounds like I should be working on a fill plate option though.

    I opted for the cheaper option of no plates, and griptape lol. Figured any accident or knee scrapes on the griptape would just build character :anonymous:

    Its the leg going through and the body going the other followed by a sharp snap that scared me with them. So fill plates were peace of mind

    Very true. My kid is accident prone too..
    Luckily, rumor on the street is @Jerneyman hasn't been very busy, so he has plenty of time to design some for his existing customers:rofl:

    I'd offer help, but you'd find me burning down your house if you put a welder in my hands. I think fab work is so cool. But I know my strengths and weaknesses, and welding is not a strength of mine. I'm gonna try really hard to fab my own hi lift rail mounts by beating the crap out of some flat bar with a BAH. :smash:

    Do it. Made my first set of hi lift mounts in a parking lot with some drill bits, a drill, and a hammer. Used my tailgate as a workbench. They were extremely ugly.

    So this eBay sale has me thinking of getting an ARB compressor. Don't really care to spend a ton of money but I will if I'm convinced. What are yall's thoughts on the dual vs the single compressor? Pros/ cons?

    Id love to know as well :thumbsup:
    I'm really digging the whole bed cubby mount by expedition essentials. Pretty sure @state48overland carries the whole combo deal. Heck, may even be able to beat ebay pricing. Either way, they can probably help!

    Doesn’t look bad. What position were you welding that? Vertical? Horizontal? We’re you pushing or pulling?

    From the looks of it, I’d turn your heat up a bit and try and go for some more penetration. Also, on the top weld, try and increase your travel speed a bit to get a flatter weld.
