Interested. So if I were to buy it from you, you could drop it in Miami and save yourself the shipping.

Let me know.

pmed you back. I wish I could do that!

I can't make you wait for me. My forwarder is not open. I won't know until tomorrow how much he will charge me to ship it so, if anyone else wants it I can't interfere.

Sorry

Hmm....well I'm not low enough to scrape around. I'll see what I can do about buying both parts, or at very least buy both parts and sell off the middle butterfly.

I'll get back to you. I live at 21146 to give you some idea on shipping.

This is off topic but a question since you have the brace.

Are frame rail braces bolted to the body with only four bolts?

Well thats a different story. If its 8 on each rail then the middle brace also overlaps four that go into the body then its a very hard mounting solution. If its just four and then the brace kinda hangs in the middle off the other four on each rail it cant be very sturdy.

I just bought the brace a month or 2 ago, there are 8 bolts per rail. It really tightens up the car. Wish this had been up a couple months ago, great price.

I just bought one a few weeks ago, but I havent installed it yet. It looks like 16 bolts on the frame rails. Does anyone else have any expeirence with it? Id love to know if it makes a big difference and if it was worth the money?

^ I have the butterfly brace.

It makes a big difference in overall stiffness of the vehicle,you won't be disappointed,well worth the money.

The biggest pain in the *** is moving the brake & fuel lines,I spent almost 2 hours ******* around with them before I was satisfied.

Nope.

It took me around 8 hours to install the BF brace,from jacking up the car and ripping half the interior out to bolting the last seat back in,it took 2 days(had to let the undercoating I sprayed on the holes I had to drill,dry overnight).
