    I noticed i did not have the plates used to help beef up the bottom of the frame and ordered them. while i was ordering them, i noticed an odd bolt with a handle for deeper
    in the frame. my installation instructions dont show these bolts. i am hoping those are for another application. going on1500 chevy.

    What year is your 1500? I've installed my fair share on both the 88-98 style and the 99-07 style. I'd be more than happy to lend a hand if you need it.

    mine is a 2005. I have access to the city garage, so any kind of lift or oil pit is an option I will be using. Just waiting for the plates to come in....and may be making these bolts now since I doubt they have them in stock. I may take you up on that!
