You really can't go wrong. The instructions explain it pretty good too. on the frame under the cab there are four existing holes just before it makes its angle up for the bed and that is where the loop goes. Its really easy once your under there. if you have a bassani catback you have may have a little fight but nothing major

Supposedly its a direct bolt in piece with no welding or drilling required. I have one but its been sitting at Dol's house for a year waiting for me to put it on. Procrastination is a biotch.

Took me about 15 min. Hang the top part, push the lower bar into place, bolt it down, then bolt the top loop in.

Mine fit so tight between the frame rails that I had to break out a 5# hammer.

Mine wouldnt fit with my Magnaflow catback, I needed another 1" clearance.
Had to weld the hangers higher this time around to get the clearance.

I suppose before I redid my exhaust I could have put a piece of heater hose over the bar and used a jack to force it to work.

All it's there for is in case your u-joints fail it can catch the d/s. Even then...even if that d/s falls, it's just gonna crumple up, you're not gonna do like a catipult or whatever.

It's only made to catch the front of the driveshaft in case of a failure up front. If the joint fails at the rear, the shaft is just gonna drop and possibly fall out. As SHOKDU said, it is made to keep from driving the front of the shaft into the ground..and also from spinning around and tearing up exhaust, gas tank, bed, etc.
