You are correct 4 grade 8 bolts although 2 prolly would have done it.

Yes the cross member I think that is what was meant by audikid. as for the front. it is bolted to the frame one bolt on each side.

I notice you are in pennington I am not too far from you. I might be going to the Dec 2 day of wheeling in wharton if you came to that you could get a great look at it. If you can't or if I don't make it to that we could prolly meet up somewhere so you could get a good look at it. this way you can see the areas I went wrong and make some improvements.

I didn;t realize you live so close but I come down that way fairly often, I ride motocross at Atco and Chatsworth, would love to meet up some time and we can check out each others trucks, I am going to try to make that meet but I need the truck to drive 330miles the next day so I am undecided right now

You can always ride along with someone else that has an open seat there normally is someone. And you don't have to push your truck to its limits. There is a go around for everything with N3elz leading the way.

there is talk about 2 groups on the next trip to Wharton, one using easy trails for the less modified truck and one for the hardcore guys, if there is a group for easy trails I will go for that, otherwise I would come down just to meet you guys and hopefully ride shotgun with someone
