I have a parts truck out back that needs to meet the torch and welder to get some bugs worked out of my design.

Did you make the brackets your self or did you start with a kit or are you not even using brackets any more? How much of a lift are you trying to run? I understand not letting out too many number when things are unknown. I have seen beams that are cut and turned offered by Camburg but for $550 with cores required I can cut them myself if I decide on this route.

So far you have been helpful in giving me one thing to be very mindful in my project.

No Brackets, they are just something else to loosen up and go wrong. My idea is to add more Up travel, not as much of the lift aspect. (Think extended shock hoops)
