Tie to Frame project

The kit calls for total of 6 points tied to frame. I have completed the 2 front tie to frame gussets and now have started the rear portion. It calls for using two 2" pre-bent pipes and running them from the top(inside) of the fender well to the frame on each side. Well easier said than done...I have attached the first of the rear tie to pipes, which run from the front inside of the fender well to the frame,just infront of the rear shock mount. Now the problem..I cannot figure out where to run the second rear pipe. I have two options: I either weld the support tubing to the bumper brace (1/4"x 2") this would make it nearly impossible to remove the bracing without torching. The other option is to run the tubing from the top of the fenderwell down to the bumper and secure it to the bumper??? This would or could create compounding affects if the bumper was bent inward or outward.

Attaching the tubing to the bumper brace very near the frame, would probably have less ramifications if the bumper was hit.

Any comments, suggestions.

Thanks.

On Alec78CJ's 78 C-7, FlMudCJ welded the bent pipe directly to the side of the framerail alongside the bumper mount. He has no problems and we dont expect any, and George put a full bead around that pipe...its not going ANYWHERE!

Re: Tie to Frame project

Re: Tie to Frame project

Im sure hoping so! In real life it looks as though I'll have plenty of clearance, then I only have 31" tires right now but eventually will go with larger ones..it could be a problem then. I guess if it is I'll go with SOA or 4" lift.
