||BETTER THAN POL KIT
|Installable, but the front lower bolt is a pain. The first get I bought from POL in not installable-unless you have the front end off of the truck! My kit came with a bag of 3/8 x 1 bolts, washers and nuts which are incorrect. Needed are 4 - 7/16 x 2 grade 8 bolts and washers and lockwashers. The lower front bolt is very difficult to install in the middle of the front radiator crossmember. The spacers included are not long enough for the upper bracket- it barely touches the top of the frame-I highly recommend using your own longer spacers to place the bracket more on top of the frame- these are easily made from 1/2 pipe|
