Theyre not too hard to install... I did a set for my buddy not too long ago.

Where in Redlands you at? I might be able to help.

There is a trick to installing the reinforcements without fighting the crossmember bolts. When you get everything bolted up, just before you put the crossmember back in force the reinforcement so the holes for the crossmember line up and then have someone drill a 1/8" hole up through them into the bottom of the frame and run a sheet metal screw in it. This will keep them in place when you install the crossmember which is real nice when you have to take it out down the road to do other work if need be.
