Grab a size 17mm and I'll email you a shopping list of extra parts I would like next time you wander past his truck.

Nah, I'm pretty happy with how I'm setting it up, just need to get more drop out of the 3-link. Right now the short shocks up front are holding it back. I put the rear shocks and EE shock mounts from my '94 on the '97 and the drop is great in the back. running slightly softer springs than what I have on the 94 but if I get a few more isolators, it will be sitting nicely.

Truck looks great!
Sent you an email with those seat belt pics. You'll love the new bar, I definitely suggest doing the crossbars. The crossbars will make it so much more useful. Did you work out the big hole in the rear yet? Just cut a piece of metal to fit around the support arms and silicon them in. If you really wanted to get anal about it you could spray the metal Arles blue before you install it. Let me know if you need any more pics. Again, great job. Looks so much better, enjoy!

I got it, thanks. The seat belt mount picture was exactly what I needed to see.

Since there are so many holes now in the bed from removing the rear seats and the new huge holes from mounting the supports, I think I will be doing that with the metal, rip out the carpet, cap plug the seat holes and then Bedline the entire rear, then put the full rubber mat from my 94 over it all.
