hold down plate ??

If the front interior walls were taken off could the hold down plate have a 90 degree angle and be bolted (self tapping bolts) down the the crossmember that goes between the A-frame?

If you take the interior panel off that's below the front window, all you will see is a floor channel and some wires. You will not see the frame at all.

Secondly, since that are receives a lot of punishment, I really don't think bolting a plate to the frame, will lasy very long.

Installing a plate from the outside, would take about 4 hours, as long as all the equipment was available.

To spread the stress out, welding to the frame would likely be better. I have never had one appear in that area but a question posed to the engineering department at Jackson Center might get you a authorized answer.
