might as well be sheet metal, it needs some extra in that area if you plan to actually wheel it with coil overs.


Also keep in mind the frame crumple zone is just behind the front upper control arm mount, and that is not boxed.
Umm no its not. I do actually wheel and I sure as fuck wheel harder than some stock truck with coil overs. If anything needs work boxing around the leaf mounts and a crossover bar for shock hoops.

Oh and double sheer means there is a mounting tab on both sides of the shock.
