    I am in the process of repairing a used undercarriage for a 98 Chevy. The slots for the pins are severely worn out. I have made a template of the mount on my other truck. I am filling them in and smoothing them down to original specs. The undercarriage has a piece of angle welded to the back, I assume to make up for the sloppiness in the slots so it lifts high enough. My question, do I cut the angle off the back or leave it on? It also appears to be an older mount and has no locking pins for the light bar. I guess I will bolt it on for now. I tried attaching some pics, didn't work. Thank you.

    Just leave the angle on there, no harm. And I wouldn't worry much about pins. They can be modified for pins, but I've done fine without pins or bolts for years. It fits tight.

    Here are some pics. These are after I started working on it. For some reason I could not upload the pics I took earlier.
