I had a guy ask me about my truck today and I told him my setup. He told me that my notch will cause my frame to bend/crack and that I should have had a under bed notch welded in.

Is he right?

I have the McG bolt in notch and flip kit.

I have heard that it could be an issue if you do not drill the corners out when cutting the notch but if you did that you should not have a problem.

You can weld the sucker in and never worry about it. you can also weld a stick of 2x2 square tubing over and lil beyond the notched area too, just cut the bed support off and ur golden.

I did drill the corners, I guess I'll be ok. I would like to go to a under bed notch in the future, I'd like to go to 24's in the rear. I'm keeping the 22's up front so I'll need more clearance when I drop the rear another inch.

I drilled the corners on mine. No problems going on almost a year now. One day when I have the bed off again I'll just weld it and call it done.

Done multiple bolt in notches, never seen one crack ever. Trucks have towed too.
I run the AVS super notch, its bad ass & has clearance for days.

I went with McG after looking at the others. The BT is really a beast but double the costs...I'm sure with all the McG out there it would be talked about if they caused issues
