A little shy of 4 feet bolt to bolt. The lowers will be at about ~ 25* (50* split b/t the two).

The uppers will have more of an angle than the lowers, damn driveshaft is in the way and I put them as close as i could without getting to close to driveshaft (it has alot of room but I'll be getting new driveshafts made)

lol not trying to take away Jeys skills at all because they are obviously way above mine but I like to work on my truck and go through the stages of building it. Probably wont look as good as his work but I enjoy trial and error.

This is just a rough drawing so measurements might be off but it just didnt seem correct when I looked at it before, but now it looks like it will work.

On the same page? those uppers are not at more than 50 (edit checked it and its 31 degrees), only way to go more would be to shorten them correct? It was my understanding they need to be the same length?

The uppers will generally be shorter than the lowers.

Would it not of been 'stronger' to have it set inside to frame rails instead of welding it to the boxing? just curious, looks killer though!

There will be a tube that goes from the backside of the link mount up to the frame on each side to support the link mounts further. I don't see it being a problem or being significantly stronger having it pass through to the outside skin of the frame.
