    That would work for me, cant see it weakening the body mount any

    Taking the tie downs off might be your only option in this case.

    Yep, cut them level and the bar went on without too much trouble after that. Thanks for the help.

    After you clean up the rust and paint it, you might want to use fish oil or another anti rust product on the whole area. I used fish oil between the winch cradle, chassis and alloy bar to make sure no rust could start.

    On my other 4x4 with an ARB commercial bar I remember when it slid over the chassis rails
    other than the side bolts it also had one that went top to bottom.

    I will douse it next day off. There is so much room to get in there before I put a winch in so will be easy as. Thanks for the help
