I don't know, but I don't see how it could... (I've never run an aftermarket tanks skid, and I'd already relocated my tank when I made these.) - perhaps @Plastics guy or @theesotericone could get a photo of the clearance between tank and LLS when convenient?

That location gets covered with the LLS.

Doesn't contact the gas skip mount?

oh yeah - you'd definitely have to cut back the mounting flange on that tank skid - looks like it might clear the bolt, though.

Thank you Eimkeith. Just to clarify, I know my slider mount in the way!😅

Here is mine, did the driver side. The harder side first. Have to drop the gas tank. But its easy if the bolts are not rusted. And if you have a lift+transmission jack. I got mine powder coated first. It was cheap, lets me know that the backside that is against the factory metal will be 100% painted after welding.







I trimmed a little bit of it to make it fit better, also where my rock slider is mounted i had to trim that little area. Maybe include longer bolts with the purchase of these items for future?

Ok, so this one isn't as simple to install as the LLS (but it's pretty straightforward, nonetheless.) It's a tight fit, that requires some tapping and clamping into position.

First, here's the problem with using upgraded joints in the stock upper link mount:



you can see that there is no room for it to articulate without binding the mount - which leads to a twisting/tearing failure.

You can see in the same photo where the reinforcement creates extra room for the joint to pivot without interference.

So, to install; first, tap the ULR into place and insert the factory bolt (it will be tight - make it go where it needs to to get the bolt installed.)












then, take a sharpie or paint pen, or something similar, and mark where the welds will be on the stock link mount, then remove the ULR.







then, remove the paint from those areas with whatever tool you're comfortable with, to prepare for welding.

now cut out this portion so that the big joints have room to move freely:



reinstall the ULR (I advise spraying the inside of the ULR with weld-through primer first, so that is has some corrosion protection), and clamp it front-to-back so that the rear face is tight against the stock mount.



- you'll know that it's tight when the "e" logo is centered in the factory hole:

(not tight)


(good to go)


tack the back at the base, then clamp the sides so that the flanges are tight to the original mount:



great; now weld it.

finish it up by positioning and welding in the supplied corner reinforcement (the little triangle) and paint it, and you're good to go!

Do you have a picture of where the triangle reinforcement should go? Finally going to have time to install these.
