Does anyone have any experience fitting an Exo 3200 or 4800 K3 pack bag on a Kifaru Ultralight frame? How do the bags fit on the 24" frame? Any modifications needed or direct fit? Anything special I need to order if I order a bag from Exo?

No experience with the combo above, but the K3 1800 fits perfectly on my 24" Kifaru Duplex. Some extra Rock Lockster buckles were handy.

You will need a compression strap kit from kifaru.
1" rock lobster buckles.
And the lid straps from Exo if you want to run the exo lid.

Are there any differences in attachment from the k2 to the k3?

I use a k2 3500 on my kifaru frame and its one of my favorite all around bags. A set of kifaru compression starps and the exo lid straps is all I have on mine. I didn't even cut off the exo buckles just in case I wanted to sell it. But I've been using for probably a year and half and should cut them off since I don't see myself getting rid of it.

Any way to post a video of the process
Idk how to post a video and have my frame set up differently for shed hunting.
But I think your over thinking it.

Just slide it over the top frame.
Loop the straps on bottom of the back thru the plastic loops on bottom of frame and cinch down.
Then what I did is put the Rocklobster buckles onto the kifaru straps that way I didn't have to modify anything.
Other cut the buckles off the bag and use auto locks.
Some just leave the rocklobster on the bag and snake in the auto locks as well.

Then just attach the lid straps to the top side loop and up to the lid. You will probably need an extra set of rock lobster here.

As stated above.....Kifaru compression kit for attaching sides to frame. Pick up 4 Rocklockster males for attaching the Kifaru compression straps to the EXO bag sides. Run the bottom straps through the Kifaru slotted buckles on the bottom of the frame.

Does this setup still allow the use of a load shelf between the Kifaru frame and the Exo bag?
