It needed to be done sooner or later. ...so I just did it. 2-1/2 hours total, some of that was just getting stuff together and figuring it out. I did it ala Angry Andy style as shown here http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/foru...ody-mount-chop.html?highlight=body+mount+chop Thanks for the write up, Andy Sorry, no pics during, but here is after. Yes, I know I need to paint it black, but my shop was out of black, so it's primer colored until I break out the rattle can again. I did the cutting, Juan in our shop did the welding, I did the grinding. It's a pretty easy deal to do. If you're deliberating about it, just do it. You'll be glad for the peace of mind. I used a grinder with a cutting wheel and the cut took about a minute in a half.
