I dont have it yet, but I have a feeling we can just cut down a body post really short and use the middle bumper mounting hole to secure it, then pin the brace down there.

Matt have you cut down the T bits in the bottom of your shocks on your BD like you used to do on your SD? How much have you trimmed them? Thanks

I did that before but I noticed that my shocks were leaking a bit from the bottom seal. I think they're there to keep the shock shaft from moving around too much in the seals and wearing out the O ring prematurely

I tried that but the triangles keep popping out and wouldn't seat. With the BD it doesn't seem to need longer shock shafts.

I like the worlds one because of how milled out it looks, not much material on it.
