    I just looked at my truck, 4 in the morning and the dog treed a possum. Well I had to look what I did behind on frame and put 2x2 square tube behind the spring perch mount hot rivits across to the frame rail other side at same location to help with side stresses while recovery and help with keeping spring perches from deflecting frame.
    Just another cross frame more forward is all I done.

    Sufficiently over engineered. I don't think I'll need any bracing at the frame.

    I'm done for the weekend.

    I'll post more pictures when I continue the work.

    I still have to;
    Cap the ends.
    Grind off some welding splatter.
    Take it off so I can prime and paint it.
    Reinstall it.
    Plumb the winch and wire in the controls.

    At the front, end of the frame the bumper is supporting the frame well. I am supporting the frame farther back where in my experience frame needs support.
