Started cutting my truck today

I started cutting the truck today, pretty intimidating thing to do now that I have done it, got the bed off. exhaust, bumper, front coils and a bunch of other crap out. Started cutting the driver side spring pocket for the bag and started the trimming of the cups, I'm whopped after working on the truck all day in this heat. After pulling the bed I am starting to plan the 4 link oiut, anyone have any pics of how they mounted their triangulated bars, did you add another bar to put the link bars onto or just connect them to existing bars. Also recomendations on fuel cells, I see in another thread the use of alumininum cells with the stock pump, what brand cell are you using? Thanks

My long bars go from the head of the axle to the inside of the frame (tabs welded there)...it was a real pain...i wish i would have just added a crossmember across....it would have been easier....i did have a RCI fuel cell...but decided not to use it because i heard people having problems with the mounting tabs on them breaking....

mines an RCI fuel cell, no probs, my friend broke his tabs off because he didn't support under it, holding all the weight of the fuel on tabs, ofcourse they're gonna break off.

I'm running parallel 4 link with panhard (1/8" side to side travel full up to full down)

all welded to outside of framerail

I was gonna do a parallel but changed my mind at the last minute...now I am wishing I hadn't changed my mind, with a parallel I could have kept my stock tank and not have half the work I do now. Oh well, too late now...and to top it off I couldn't even work on it tonight, had to help my old man out with his car to get ready for a race this weekend, so that puts me another night behind.
