Wow that could've been bad. I seriously considered welding spacers inside my hoop tabs to narrow the gap to 1.25" to fit the King's but instead went with the King 1.5" adapters. Maybe I should've welded them after all.

The bolt snaped where the threds start, the grade 9 bolts are a bit longer
And the threds dont start in the middle of the bolt
So the shock is not riding on the threds

The whole weight of the front end of the truck is on those bolts and
Most of the time they snap at the threds so the shock not riding on the
Threded part of these bolts will help avoid the snaping

I finally got the winch mounted/wired, the holes are threw half inch of steel

thanks every body

failed to mention it but I also put some jd traction bars on along with ruffstuff u-bolts and plates... like always the ruffstuff stuff was super beefy when compared to stock



still have a few things I need to get done, I need to weld on bump stop cans, weld on front truss

I want to redo my rear shocks and a new rear bumper will hopefully be in the works soon

I will try and get progress pics when I do

Looks great out in the rocks. How much bedliner did it take to do the whole truck?
