I was mounting my FROR xmember when I ran into a snag. In the instructions and in the pics it showes the xmember sitting on top of the weld on brackets. Well in my truck there was not enough room to sit em on the brackets. I would have had to lower my drive train about 2 inches, which would defeat the purpose of the whole thing. So in order to make it work I had to mount the brackets upside down on the frame and hang the crossmember off the bottom. Which means right now at all times the weight of my drivetrain is hanging on the 2 bolts. Trying to go the other way runs into my cab. This way I was only able to add 1/2" of lift to the drivetrain and it hits my cab. I am thinking all of the installs I have seen on these are newer years with 3" body lifts. Mine is an 83 with a 2" body lift and dual cases. Ill post a pic, but I don't know if you can see what I am saying.
