I took some 3/4"x3/4" steel angle iron and welded some bent flat stock onto it so the bar sits down below the wind fairing.

Not my X, but its basically the same as this:


EDIT:
Here is a photo of my setup.

Hey, I remember you saying recently you got your timing belt changed and whatnot. Did the place you went to also change out the water pump? I'm trying to find price quotes for the job around my side of town, unfortunately looking at $800 and up...

Rosie,
Airpark Auto Service does all the work on my truck. They are up near the Scottsdale airport. I'd call them to get a quote.

Here is a new crossbar I'm fabricating to hold my CB antenna and eventually a shovel and Hi-Lift. I'm using a Miller Diversion 180 TIG welder and it makes beautiful welds.

Close up of my TIG welds:

Yeah that CB mount came out awesome, I like how it folds for low clearance. We'll be looking to you for more cool fab mods ;D

Shrock Rear Bumper coming soon.

I also just picked a used Oasis 2 RTT on my way back from California. Without the ladder, it weights only like 40 lbs which is pretty great. Hopefully I can go camping with it this weekend.
