I am having a problem with my driveshaft hitting where my top link bars are mounted. The bags are also mounted on the top link bars. I am wanting to make a notch so I will clear the drive shaft.. Eany ideas?

Who would put the link right there? Hello driveshaft problems. Scrap that piece of angle. It has to be raised, unless you prefer pushing your truck? Good luck Ian.

Honestly if I were you, I'd ditch that link set up and start over.

Well I know it was stupid to put that link there. But what is a cheap way I can redo it? I am wanting to keep the top bag brackets and I was going to buy lower behind axel brackets but the top brackets are too close on the rear end. I am just wanting to get some ideas on what I could do to fix the setup. Eany suggestions would be great.

Here is my setup. It has the bag on the bar setup. It is not a high dollar crazy tubing setup. But it works great, with plenty of lift. The angle you have now has got to be redone. I do not recommend using cheap and back half in the same sentence. You want a solid dependable setup built on a budget. Take your time with it, measure twice and cut once. Do not give up on the truck.
