those do look nice but would be insufficient for truck pulling IMO i like the bracket to be hanging down as low as the bottom of the diff so like 3.5 inches below the axle tube for the most leverage

the lower you put them, and the more leverage you give them the more it will lift the front of the ruck taking away from your traction.

i have homemade brackets similar to those posted and i have no issues.

actually lower would lessen the axle's leverage against the truck... Backwards of your post.
