ya it looks easier then it is....
i finally went out and did some more work on it today...when i was getting to the final stages, i didnt like how it was turning out.. once i took the main frame brackets off, it didnt bolt on the same as it did before..that threw a few measurements off that i took before. The piece that i got welded on top bailry sticks out far enought to touch the bracket to hit the waag...this means it pulls the top end a little closer to the truck and the bottom end sticks out to far for my liking...(its gotta be perfect if its custom)
I plan to make 3 holes longer so i can slide the bottom end bracket inward to make it how i like it.

It is getting fixed tomorrow, and i will try to put it back together on tuesday.
I hope it goes better then today...

Evan remember when I said that my brackets sat pretty much lay on the frame, now they do on yours right? Its a trial and error process, its takes a little longer then you would like but it be worth it in the end.
