whos running em, and did you buy a kit(ORD) or did you fab one? I'd rather not have to wait till the frames cracked to patch it and then brace it, would rather do it now and forget bout it. Pics would be awesome.

81 and up has a little bit more braceing from the factory than the older ones

in what form? I cleaned the hell out of my truck last night, thing had never been cleaned. 4 cans of degreaser later, i find the wavey flange mounting my power steering shaft into my power steering box is mangled and being held on by 2 bolts that arent stock.

some one may have screwed with it, as in removed the factory brace

otherwise it should go from the frame to the crossmember from the front

i did a lower plate 3/8ths ran down the bottom side of frame.....will be doubling it up soon... got the frame section..... thats the best bet IMO....
