    I think they are. Doing some googling, the length works, but in order for the bottom of the mounting plate (the horizontal piece) to sit flush with the bottom of the frame, you would need a body lift or to modify the mounting plate.

    Need to mount CB connector box somewhere under the dash i guess. Haven't looked under there yet. Got a Cobra 75wxst. Also need to get an antenna. Not sure what to get. A big whip or something small and magnetic. Wondering if you guys put your radio's on a switch or run them direct to the battery. Over and out.......lol

    I used an add-a-fuse and ran it off an empty slot in the in cab fuse box. Since i have no power windows/mirrors/locks/ etc I have a ton of open spaces. This way it's on keyed power, and i didn't have to bother with going through the grommet to the engine bay. I have the Cobra 75 wxst, pretty sure Rob does as well.

    Unless you are correct haha..but yeah I am going with you. They are the Westin black ones and it was stated they are no drilling required, so it's gotta be.

    Anyone research or know anyone running one of those shacklemount crossmembers ( Defined engineering) ???? Got my interest. Expensive but i think it could be duplicated for a lot less. First time i even heard of it was the guy thinking about Long travel kit.
