Step 18 – Insert the cab assembly
Fully attach the front ends of the cab assembly to the ends of the crossbar. Then, put together the upper cab to the J bar upright with two setscrews. Tighten the setscrews to secure it. With the help of an assistant holding the cab horizontally to the ground, tighten all bolts and setscrews.
Step 19 – Fasten the cover to the cab and attach the pouch
Get the cover fastened to the cab and attach the pouch to it.
