So did not like the way the stock shocks were leaking so put some big bores on.

Much better.

Did you mount the upper end of the shocks at the trans brace screws?

Looks killer!

Yep could have moved it back another 5mm but took the easy way.

Can you explain more on how you changed the shock mount/chassis plate. Maybe show some pictures?

I know the stock one is a weak point, and one made from aluminum can crush the transmission. Yours seems to be longer than the stock.

I'd figure it out myself, but my truck isn't in my hands yet :(
