    My sliders need a beating too. Be the first time to really use them. Guaranteed they’ll be used this trip.

    Jonny’s right; this is the new bed mat mount! They’re just used sooooooo much I need to keep them handy.

    Charter captain bailed on us this morning. Trying to see if we can line up a boat for tomorrow. If we do, I’ll end up missing Choccoloco.

    So check this out, my thoughts are it would be easier to go ahead and run the bolt through the bushing and mount then weld, but idk.

    Anyways, interesting, but also 150-170 seems high?

    Kenny Moved your post to the first page. :cheers:
    New and improved cab chop done today :headbang:

    Alpine Designs relocate plates. Basically they take place of that monstrosity triangular piece everyone likes to hack away at, and moves the bracket further back while keeping the cab mount in the same spot. All in all it was a huge pain in the ass; but after some trial and error could be done in half the time especially if the truck could come off the ground more. Can't thank @Bigdaddy4760 Mike enough for all the help and letting me use his space :fistbump:

    A little before action. You can see with after my original chop, my tires were still eating away at it, and that wasn't even at full lock.. Time for that fucker to go..

    After some burning and grinding, same view
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The real burning man. Again without a lift, it makes this project that much more miserable
    [​IMG]

    You can see how the bracket is designed and intended here. Keep in mind I still need to do a bunch of little grinding work to clean the old cuts up, but with some time restrictions we did what was needed to finish it up; and I can always go back and clean those up another time. His welds weren't skipped though :benchpress:

    [​IMG]

    And BAM.. The clearance gained is awesome..
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    At full lock. Before, the tire would start rubbing about halfway down on there.. A couple inches does wonders, ask any woman out there.. It might still look close, but with these tires this is a killer improvement
    [​IMG]

    I feel I've gained 7-33 hp from the weight shaved off as well
    [​IMG]

    And nothing better than taking numerous breaks in between to check on these bad boys. I'm gonna continue on to my meat coma. Thanks for checkin' it out! :thumbsup:

    Id definitely run the bolt through the mount first too. Sure would suck to weld it up only to be barely off..

    also, why is it always called a relocation? The body mount stays in the same spot. Why not call it a low profile cab mount bracket or something similar?

    I cant say I disagree, plus if you just trim the hell out of existing cab mount on the front side the back side should hold up to any impacts.

    That’s the train of thought that he was following as well. Even without filling the CMC back in, you still retain most of the structural support

    Thats why i just got a simple cab mount chop. With spc control arms and the right offset you can clear up to 35's. Well 35 11.50

    this was from the video I posted a little bit back the last time we were talking CMC's. I kinda came to the conclusion that its just the risk everyone takes when modding their vehicle in any way. The way I see it, the same risks are at play when going larger tires, lift, spacers, etc. I guess it was technically designed to deflect a 30" tire, not spaced an extra inch or so in or out of the wheel well, at stock height.

    Its all about your wheel specs and UCA's honestly. @tweakit88 can speak from experience, running 33's no CMC, correct?
