Looks alot like the frenched hangers I built for my truck this winter. Main differnce is I built mine with multiple mounting holes. (to adjust the wheelbase)

Mine have had no strength issues and if I had to cut and re-weld them every time I wanted to take them off well that'd just suck. That 1% weaker that they may be is a sacrifice I'm willing to make in exchange for the convenience. I'm not bashing your work at all though, I think it's pretty damn good. I did hear that you got hung up on a waterfall though b/c of a pesky t-case or something. Ever thought of moving it? Something about starting a new career? Haha J/k

if you JJ your back shackle hanger make sure they are super burly.
we blew out several 9/16's versions doing it.
try the currie 3/4" ones.

what did you blow out Chuck? The inners?
What dia and width were they. Were they the adjustable ones?
I've got the Lrg Currie that are adj. but they still have the 9/16th size bolt.
U weren't breaking the bolts where u?

Just out of curiosity, are you moving your front mount forward? It's obviously hard to tell from those pics, but it looks like the wrap may stick out a little below the frame if mounted exactly as shown in the "mock-up". But again, that may just be the angle of the pics.

a few more from last night
made 2 metal straps drilled at the proper length to serve as a template for locating the new front mount. Deside it's best to cut the new front mount in 1/2 so I can keep the stock mount for locating purposes.
This was the new front mount that I'm gona cut where the marker is

Here are the template bars mounted on the front mount

The cardboard template will be the first cutout on the frame once that section is located I'll cut the rest of the frame and add in the other part of the front mount.
