Someone was asking about this so I thought I'd share with the class.  Here is how to fit a DG16 Frameset onto a Large Molle bag, with no sewing.  I will probably do up a mod kit later but here's a simple field expedient.  

All you need is 2 x 11" of any webbing at hand, and 1" two buckles, either metal or polymer.  

webbing

So here we go.  Thread the webbing through the 1" loops on the bag.

Now thread them over the top of the frame and through the first slot.

Now thread through second slot.

buckle

And secure with buckle.  Here I've used flat metal ones.  You can roll and tape tails if desired.

both

Both sides.

top

Now add in top load straps.  Note they are "reversed rigged" from factory, that is inserte4d from bag side and run over top of frame.  And pick up top stab straps.

sides

And now three side tabs.  They lined better than I remembered.  I used the middle slot (right above lower shoulder strap attachment) for the bottom tabs.

Now thread vertical straps through bottom slots in frame.

And re-thread on pack.

pack

Ta-Da.  One Molle Large upgraded with a DG16 frameset.  

It fit on a lot better than I remember when doing initial T&E.  So yeah you guys with Molle Large rucks, you're cleared hot for a DG16 frameset.  If you need the webbing and hardware, let me know in the comments on your order and I will include.  

For a sewn mod kit, I'd add some more 1" loops up top, like a Crossfire bag, so you have more options to move top stab straps around, and tie it in with bag.  Also probably sew some tabs onto the 1" loops on bag, so it tabs right in, without hardware.  Just some fine-tuning.
