Yes, I am not trying to bust anyone's balls about this but the safety stuff is really important.

Here's a link to a good writeup on the considerations for mounting 4-point harnesses.... you'll notice that even with a good quality set of harnesses there are a number of pitfalls and ways to install things wrong.

The harnesses I have are just webbing, same as the factory lap belts. Plus you can (and would) still get whiplash with lap belts in addition to the broken face from eating the steering wheel. I realize my setup isn't ideal, but in my opinion it's better than just lap belts. I fully intend to get racing seats with better mounting to the cage when I build it, but I think at the moment I'm at least a little better off than factory. Either way I drive it safely which is the biggest part. I don't tailgate, try not to speed, turn at appropriate speeds for a large lifted truck on bias ply tires. I realize someone could hit ME, but most accidents are avoidable IMO

Dude, I don't think there will be much damage if someone hits you, they are going to go right under your truck
