    Here's what my buddy and I cooked up for his '96. Frame mounts are 1/4"x6", tubing is 2"x2"x3/16" and plating is all 3/16".

    Pic heavy but at least you can see all the angles and what not. This is his first mod to any any truck so he's really got the bug now.

    Out with the old

    Boxed and sleeved the frame

    It's funny you're the 1st response. I sent him your build thread a while ago and it's been quite the inspiration to him. :cool:

    No. He's anti-forum. Keep trying to get him to just sign up over there so he can research and see non-linked pics but no dice yet.
