The bolt that goes through the body mount, threads into a slug that is welded into the cage tubing coming down from the A and B pillar through the mount. I think the pics show top and bottom of both, let me know it you want a different pic. The first pic, is the rear cab, and the second is the front cab mount.

I plan on using corbeau baja's, and I'm only 5'8", there'll be enough room for me. Got a buddy who's 6'4" and he's already bitching.

Decided to save some $$ and recycle some bungs from a project gone wrong, the arms are too short for the four links going in the ranger... D.O.M. on the way, hope to have this thing sprung by X-mas.
