So Killer bro
Thanks man.... the bag mounts are welded in solid and split the frame so they are reinforced. I didn't box my frame as the weight of this truck it is over kill in my opinion. I have friends that boxed the frame and for just cruising you dont need to.

Thanks man...Its funny you mention a Suburban. I missed out on another last week.a 50 with clamshell doors. Check out that price. The guy right away said I would take less....Are you kidding me. As I pulled up it was being loaded up on someones trailer. It was 30 minutes from my house. My plan was to flip it. Oh well.

You need to get yours on the road.
