Could someone please post a picture of their subframe conectors?

A description of what thickness of steel they used, etc. I would greatly appreciate it.

No pic - haven't built any yet, but the most common thickness is 10 gauge 2 x 2 steel. You do know you'll have to fab from scratch. I would not be able to supply a pic because I'd fab them basically in place and the way I route mine might not work for your equipment.

Nice, did you just tie into the top of the arch (frame underneith)? My comet is set up the same way so that should work.
Thanks

Yeah. The 2x3 box drops right into the factory frame rails from above and overlaps by about 1/2". Weld it up and it's done. Total material cost was about $10.00, 3 - 4 hours cutting, fitting & welding.
