That is the brake proportioning valve. If you type that into a search or BPV you will get a number of threads that discuss how to remove or relocate this.:waytogo:

You want locate the center of the notch right above the axle, especially if its a round notch. This will give you the most clearance. Measure it up, tack in the notch, make sure its all square and weld in the sides. Once that's done weld in the top portion, cut out the frame you don't need and then weld in the lower part.

chris i dont know but i dont think he needed help on the install of the notch i think hes wondering where to relocate the bpv.

ok maggot now some remove the valve and put in a t fitting and join all the lines to the fitting. that or you could unbolt it from the frame push it aside for now. put in your notch. then remount the valve in front of the axle and make sure you have enough clearance up and down. Also make sure you dont crimp any of the lines. make sure that the rubber line is not at all stretching whether aired up or slammed. So you dont break that line and have no brakes whatsoever. If you keep the valve dont undo the brake lines going to it, So you dont have to worry about bleeding the brakes later.

Yea I read it quick and didn't really grasp what he was asking.

Just mount it at the front of the notch if you decide to keep it. I just removed mine and ran a single line instead.
