    04-06 ultramount mvp 3 plug. Cracked at bottom of both up towers. Is it just a matter of just rewelding or has someone thought of a piece to encapsulate the whole bottom?

    I use a piece of tubing to weld on over top. Then make slits in the bottom to allow it to contract as you tighten the bolts.

    If we weld a sleeve over top do we even need to put bolts back in? Can we weld to the round tube under the tower?

    I would drill and bolt it or your weld will crack.
