Ladder Bar Bracket Setup
We use all thread to set the distance between the plates and to keep the brackets strait and square. Now that the brackets are in place the top piece of all thread can be removed and a housing can be bolted in place to help keep the housing strait when the back brace is welded on. After the rear brace is welded in place the housing will be ready to cut the ends off and shorten it to the wanted length.
Using the centering plate to find the tube lengths.
Setting up the ladder bar brackets.
The front crossover support is mounted into the frame connectors by drilling a hole the size of the front support and allowing the front bar to be inserted into the frame connectors. Then the brackets are centered to the chassis and welded to the frame and floor pan.
