as you can see above i mounted the shock toward the front at the top so it will be perp with the frame at full stuff.

we made the lower mounting brackets adjustable so the angle can be changed and the ride height too slightly. but mostly for the angle at full stuff and at ride height of 10-12*

Trent...This is sick. If you werent rolling 42's I would say chop off some of that front bumper and make the approach angle better, but it probably wont matter once you get those one there

I don't want to modify the frame a whole lot man. The entire thing is air tight so it is a portable air tank

You do solid work, I highly doubt your rigs will break that easy. Maybe if you tried though
