I think we need to get the VMI up to Top of the World, back it up hanging over the ledge!
That would be something you wouldn't see anytime soon!!!!

Hey man, sweet rig! I noticed you have a pretty similar setup to what I just ordered (Extended Radflo 2.0s with 1" spacers, 600lb spring, I like softer ride). I noticed that you put extended brake lines on. Was that necessary? Were you stressing them about as far as they would go? I don't know why I didn't think about that before, but Ill be installing my setup in a few weeks and just wanted to make sure I had all the parts ready to go. Anything else you'd suggest I add? Thanks a ton.

@ Brett. Basically the same rack overall. Side rails are a little wider for access to accessory mounting hardware. Side rails are heavier 12 gauge now to better support offset awning mounts. More mount holes. "X" on side rails. Accessory mounts coming soon. (Hilift and awning)

Thanks Dave - I think my whole rack is 12 gauge IIRC. Curious to see what your mounts look like too.
