Here is a pic of one of my front mounts.

I will be making new mounts for the rear so that they mount to the axle tube and also plan to build even better bars with good heim joints and DOM tubing.

The brackets look good dude. keep us updated on the rest when you get to it. Im gonna make some up here one week but I personally like a bolt on application and try to avoid welding to the frame as much as possible.

I do too. My first 3 sets were bolted. But bolts can tend to pull through the frame and be a hassle, plus drilling frames without a mag drill can take awhile.

I spent some time on these making them the way I wanted and decided they were my final set so I welded them on.

Just so others know too, make sure to clean a lot of the rubberized stuff off of the frame, one you start welding it will melt and run into your weld puddle, didnt have this happen but got close.

Yeah i had fun drilling the frame for oversize tow hook bolts on my 98... the frame is like double walled where i was drilling and had a half in electric drill ( I call it the wrist snapper) and it was not fun at all... but I will be doin the bolt on app for mine but on the top of the frame make a plate w/ threaded bolt holes so the bolts don't come through frame.
