Nope, still have to trim the front to fit around the flared hylines tube. But it is not hard to make them look like they were made to fit.

It's nice being just down the road from DPGoffroad.

Hmm, you think they would make them to fit if you let them knew that you have the hilines.

I took the easy way out with trimming mine and just cut straight down along the tube, but when I get access to a welder, I'll weld back on a piece to fit around the tube better.

Decided to wrench a bit today. Will hopefully borrow my neighbors welder sometime this week and weld up the clevis mounts, but needed to see how much I needed to cut off, since like G Beasley mentioned a few pages back, they were a bit over an inch too long. Just used my angle grinder and went to work. Wasn't too bad...



And here are a couple of what it'll look like...







Also since I am going to start the UA install this week sometime, I decided to take off the stock trans skid. Man is it mangled.

Where I ended my night...







Crossmember is in. Still need to do Novak, CA's and driveshaft and take for a spin before mounting up the surfboard and wings.

The shackle mounts arent terrible to cut , just odd that they are consistently long with the price of steel . I suppose they are used for other applications and must be cut to fit .

Love the side shot , with the shorter wheelbase you have I bet it will be pretty rare for you to hit your skid again .
