LOL thats the 2nd time someones mistaken that for a 4 link

EDIT: when i do my back, can i copy your link design. I think it looks SICK...but i'd use step notches instead to make it a little different. Truck is gonna be sick when it's done..cant wait to see it

yes they are re7 in the front. locks out the control arms with 60 psi.

pics of the crossmeber installed are already up. i cut it so that the tabs went all the way through so i could weld them in the front adn teh back for extra strength.

i think the crossmeber is going to be close to the bed floor. it will prob stick through. its made out of 3/16th also. i wanted 1/8 but the metal shop was out. ive got 1/8 plate to close the frame up to help it also sum

oh and a warning about those notches. i used practcally the whole notch, and it clears fine with my 28 inch tires when the front is layed. and its perfectly centered. but when i lift the front. the axle hits the notch. its only at teh very top of the fronts lift. just a warning to ya guys

i had my upper bars setup like yours ontop the drive shaft loop, now i wish i wouldn't have. but it makes for a good place cuz you can put your lowers high inside the frame rails with no worry of hittin them. the only downfall with mine was my bars were parallel when laid out not at ride height.

the truck looks good nice work

not much of an update. i got the lower part of the notch welded in. started tightening the 4 link bolt with the numatic air ratchet. but when it got tight it swung my hang and pinched my thumb on my notch. got a deep cut and 5 stitches. so thats going to slow me down for a while haha.
