The kit for the OBS trucks mount the stabilizers on top of eachother, not like to one shown above. The long bracket that looks like a piece of angle will mount ot the passenger side frame. The other bracket will u-bolt to the tie-rod. You will have to center the stabilizers and find the mounting point for the u-bolts. Just try to find a place on the frame that keeps the stabilizers as level as possible. At least that's how my kit was. I modified mine by making a new bracket out of 2" angle that I mounted to the axle (dana 60) and used the orriginal tie rod bracket. The stabilizers are still stacked, but not mounted to the frame. My frame was so far from the axle that the stabilizers would have been angled almost 45 degrees down. I sold the truck this was on or I could give you some pics. If you have any questions, pm me.

I have the skyjacker kit on my truck and there is no welding in the kit. I wonderif it is possible that the wrong directions came in your kit. Mine only took about 1\2 hour to install. I have pics at www.myspace.com/ryanronning in my trucks folder.

I think I'll try to modify mine like Pipelayer did. I don't like the idea of messin up my frame. Thanks for the help.

Mine is an over/under kit, not an opposed kit like in Ronnings pics. Thanks for the help though.
