guarrenttee'd to hit the gas tank X member once you install a set of notches in the frame. The first gen air bar the driveshaft hits just as the truck lays out in the notches. the second gen setup the driveshaft hits the clamshell bracket when you try to lay it out in the new notches in the frame.

But yeah, suicidedoors SHOULD make a raised gas tank member for the second gen air bars. All they would have to do is weld on 2 link tabs to the member to hold the upper wishbone. No different then there 3 link members other thent he tabs would be in a different location and possiblly length.
