Looking around for a frame notch..
I need a pre-fab kit, as I'll have to pay a shop to do the install and they don't normally do fab work.

Suggestions for something other than Belltech?
Anything stronger, tougher, meaner?

Jesse beat me to it
IMO the AirBagIt one Rich posted is the way to go for prefabbed. I have it and love it.

I like using VHT Roll Bar & Chassis paint. It's self priming, durable, corrosion resistant and the satin black finish is very close to OEM. POR-15 is also a good choice, but it's kinda pricey.
Thank you sir!

That's the way it is for most of us I suppose..
If I have the cash to throw at my only toy (my truck) it's because I've been working a bunch of hours.
But when I'm working so much I don't get time to spend on the truck.



Got a friend who retired this year at 55.
Man, the cars and trucks I could play with if I had that kinda time.

I have that notch it is really beefy. I see some guys feel it is a bit pricey but I like it better than the others. Since you are cutting the frame and the potential for it to drop out of alignment (frame alignment not front end alignment) structurally I feel it is a good choice. It can be bolted in but I bolted and welded it in. I used the same paint as Rich did the VHT.
