    This is a pita setup for how to mount the drivers side battery/step box, had to have custom mirrored brackets made for passenger side and drill that extra top hole on pass side

    Refabrication and frame strengthening of the exhaust support, drivers side, includes rear mounting bracket for batt/step box

    Actual tank hangar install, had to attach straps to top before install cause i can only turn my ratchet 5degrees on the t-bolt in the bracket

    Very nice! Looks completely different. The only problem with more shine is now your wheels need to shine and get some of those chrome hub covers off eBay. lol. $200

    I just did the same thing to a T 600 here’s a picture. I’ve invested over 15 K and still have a good amount of things to go. It has a Detroit series 60 which is why I’m so in love with it.
