theres no room to open the lid up under mounted to the frame. trust me id love for it to work out under there, but I dont think it will. remember ive got a 50 stude cab on a s10 frame and the guy before me purposely lowered the frame mounted cab pieces to get the truck lower.
the one foot push bar would be more like 2 feet, and thats what scared me. ive got approx a foot in front of the trans crossmemeber and the member itself is approx. 6 inches wide at the frame. so minimum would be 18-20 inches away. seemed to me to be alot of bar that could bend.
since I cant go farther w/ my project until this is resolved, ill post some photos to see if anyone has a solution. thanks for the help so far.
