    Re-did my rear wells and rather than replace the rotted out gussets with some new ones I thought i'd see if anyone makes a tie in kit. If such a thing doesnt exist, does anybody have any measurements that I could take to a shop and have bent for me? Any help is appreciated.

    Rather than get measurements from someone elses 40, take your own, it's not too hard. All trucks will be a little different due to compressed body mounts and such. Any competent shop that could build these for you can most certainly take these simple measurements. Personally, if your using a stock roll bar, I would just sandwich the sheetmetal with two large plates of .25 inch steel. It's gonna save you a few bucks that you could put in your rollbar fund.
