So...I totally forgot that I needed a GM ubolt plate..yes they they different than anything Jeep offered. I used a FSJ spring bolt plate on the drivers side, but the pass side needed something custom...



3/4" steel...I have a lot of this stuff. What I don't have is a bandsaw and a drill press, so forming this by hand (sawzall, 6.5amp 1/2" drill, and 4" makita grinder, and a collection of machinist drills meant for a milling machine). The holes are actually correct spacing, the pad is not square (doesn't matter either really).

2 more to go...this is the wide side for the pumpkin, on a GM HD44 the other ubolt goes over the tube.

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
