    I see you braced your 50 cal mounts off the side wall of the gun box. I built a post mount centered in the rear of the gun box, per the original Grim Reaper 4th ID gun truck from Vietnam. I braced the post with three diagonal braces bolted to the floor of the box, per the standard 50 cal post mount.
