Boner bar is fine.

Just, no bumper man. I dunno. At least put some kind of skid plate there to break it up a bit.

Just dropped a grand in my car so it's gonna be a while before I get 4wd. I still need gears/locker for the front and want to swap gears for the manual transfer case before I put it in .

As long as the body doesn't move too much. which is why most put it on the cab. maybe go solid body mounts and leave it? in reality I'm sure it'll be fine, just as long as it feels like its not binding while in heavy articulation.

I have had mine this way for about a year now, I haven't notice any binding or anything yet. Their should still be enough play between the body and the mount.

Got the steering fixed up but fried the battery on the charger. Been looking for a good one but the battery tray is so small. Heard the diehards from Sears are good?

Got a new 1000 crank amp battery. Had to cut the battery tray to fit it and now I need to find a way to secure it. Didn't notice the different foot on it.

Lol. Thanks.

I'm worried about the bottom eye binding up. So I'm gonna redo the mounts like this.
