Just checked, my bottom mounts come off of brackets that bolt onto the fron of the radius arms.

Yes it is integral.

But, you can weld a bracket. See the pic I posted.

Actually, I don't believe they are the same... I was talking to some guys on pirate and they say that the rrc mounts are lower and will interfere with the spring in the sg kit under full flex...but still much better than stock...

Honestly can we see a build thread already? I'd love to see your concept and execution.

Lol... Problem is I'm high on concept and low on execution... I have all these parts stockpiling waiting to get everything together but I guess I can take some pics of what's already been done...

Thanks for that pic... First shot I've seen of the bottom mount...

How much cutting is involved to mount the sg shock hoops?

If you want to move the front shock outboard of the spring, try QT, they have a shock mount. Call Lucky8....

Not sure what will interfere. I don't have that truck to take more pics for you.

My RRC had RTE 3" lift with pucks, all the RTE arms on 33's" and it was not an issue.

Those were mine, unless he since replaced them with something else.
