Other people say they are doing a LCG rig because they can't afford a bigger lift and don't want to admit it ... This would be the category I'm in ... LOL

The main idea was to just truss the brackets to hopefully prevent them from bending again ... plus each time I've caught rocks was on the front of the bracket which these skids cover (you can see the rock rash on the end of the control arm which is now behind that skid) ... this way was the simplest way to get the job done

I know that's why sometimes I leave it all behind and just take a compass. Unless I'm going to a specific location.
