    Just makes things easier for when they inevitably get smooshed.

    I’ve never liked the design of the alpine relocate and this just proves it.

    Yeah, it's just ripping the frame. It's a dumb design. Puts a loooooot of force on a long arm and has barely any connection to the frame.

    yeah thats a poor design, I would have at least put a big ol plate on the frame behind it to help with distribution. Factory body mount is pretty beefy for a reason lol

    Yeah exactly. Reinforce the frame there and also add another connection point to the mount, similar to the lil b.

    Seems to help a lot with load distribution. I went with lil b and had a plate welded over the giant hole where the factory cab mount was located for extra support on the 2nd gens. I don’t foresee any issues with this design

    yeah with that design it's not surprising. My tire on the other hand, enjoys making love to my cab mount. I think I'll let them have at it as long as I don't have to watch, and can turn up the radio.
