im going to when i build the high lift mount. prolly not a full x but a cross brace. the way i have it designed it is very strong. when it does roll, at what ever point it rolls it will be hittong an opposing force like a car occupant cab. i am going to "x" the roof bar though. i still have alot of gusseting and bracing to do.

installed the front shackles. mounted the coil over reservoirs, removed the springs. set it down at ride height. going to pick up the new springs next week. brake lines are on order. got the drive shaft made and installed. I just need to do some grinding and then spraying her down with bed liner.



that's how the shock will look at ride height.
