    Re: 4 LINK Box Fitting

    I fitted Gartrac two piece boxes to the last one I did, the first part (that connects to the seat x-member & dont forget to cut the top out of the seat x-member so the new mount if flush with the front of the mount) goes in vertically, then the cover just fits onto the floor, and covers the hole where the link bars pass through.
