I thought they were going to be a bigger PIA than they were. Even with the bars welded in I can still raise the body 5-6 inches. We had to lower the body to fit them and tack then try to raise it again to weld the top side. When we went to weld them to the frame/crossmember we had to get creative with ratchet straps and transmission jacks to suck the frame back up. When Ray went to weld the underside of the bars after the body was back down he ended up lighting the headliner on fire! I am now waiting on a new one and will have to raise the body one more time to put that in.LOL. I was wondering how you could lift the body with back bars in. Of course now I see they weren't welded.
