What are these brackets for?
« on: April 08, 2018, 07:01:32 PM »
There are two on each side and I have no idea what they are for.  I can't remember seeing any pictures that show these clearly nor of any attachments shown.  I have a couple of ideas, but really don't know.

Thanks for the quick replies!

So this leads to another question, where does the oil pan armor bolt on?  I was thinking that this might have been one of the possible areas.

Here is a photo of the oil pan armor and the frame brackets it mounts to.

Interesting I have heard of the style with the hole in it but have never seen one.
