Frame Rail

Each GryoJoint subframe fits around a framerail above the center skidplate and is interlocked between them via nine bolts: four through crush sleeves that must be welded into the framerails, the three original bolts that hold the center skidplate; and two more that connect the subframes directly to the skidplate. Here we are marking the locations to drill the holes. This hole drilling is probably the most labor-intensive part of the installation. Nth Degree hopes to offer a partially weld-on kit in the future which would greatly reduce the overall installation time and eliminate the need for crush sleeves and drilling holes altogether.
