*** CUT OUT - the center section of your X-frame.... batteries across the back are easier to get at ... the batteries on the side provide good weight distribution... But then the X-frame is a wonder for 3 wheel moves......... Get the cross member & the uper a-arm mounts reinforced, the frame too- where it runs from the engine bay , under the body & wheel wells.... How about the whole frame instead??? I should have just said that to begin with ...At least do the upper a-arm reinforcement & crss member --- Thats the whole reason I had to wrap my frame--- I cracked it at one of those points.....BOB_T

AND DONT USE THE SHOCK HOLE AS A CENTER TO DRILL THE CYLINDER HOLE IN THE FRONT SPRINGTOWERS. THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE A LITTLE BIT OF CENTER AGAINST THE WHEEL OR ELSE THE CYLINDERCASING WILL RUB THE BAR THAT HOLDS THE UPPER A-ARM.
