On a 2k+ if you want to do this, you'll almost certainly have to retro to the solid front mount.

I just picked up some 3" Heavy smooth lined flex pipe that could be used on ours instead of the aluminum pipe. It wouldn't look shiny chrome like that and doesn't flex a lot (because it'* thick), but I expect it would work.

This is an L67 I know...and you have probably seen it, but it is worth a repost I think.

All credit to bill wren and I hope he doesn't mind. And if he does...he will delete it before I can...
