Hey guys and gals, iam in the process of boxing up my side rails, and was wondering if there are clearance issues people have ran into. Particularly where the rear floor pans widen towards the pinch seams. I havent ran my box pieces vertically like most people, instead i ran it from the top of the frame rail to the inside edge of the bottom part of the rail, making the piece act as the hypotenuse. Iam trying my best to mock it up with a tape and straight edges, but this makes it very hard for a precise measurement. Thanks for your help. Pics below.

Looks good... I have the same question. Did it exactly the same to mine and now I’m ready to drop the frame. I had the same concern, I’ll let you know how it goes when I drop the body here soon.

It looks magnificent and exactly how i envisioned it after paint. Plz do keep in contact. Iam about 3 months from mounting the frame. Better to adjust while its bare than assembled.

Yup, I’m hoping it fits perfectly since it’s powder coated. A buddy of mine was over last weekend, we measured and it should fit.

Where can a guy get those braces? I was going to fab my own, but if i can plug and play, ill be happy. Iam sure the frame will fit. There is just one part that may need adjusting, which would be the rear seat belt bolt that sticks out quite a bit. Iam hoping thats the worst of it.

Gbodyparts and GNS Performance... make sure you get the bracket to do the rear. Let me know if you need a photo.
