Still flex great too, you can see the rear tires pretty good in these

Garrett, have you relocated those at all to the bottom holes on the axle mount? Did you tell any difference from the top holes? I'm thinking about leverage.

yeah, i put the bottom hole there just for that. though i havent used them there yet. hell, i havent driven the ford in like 3-4 months. next time i do it will be onto a trailer to go get the motor yanked out.

next time the traction bars get used they will be holding back some cummins torque!

nope! that would have made them pointless.

single mount on both the axle and frame.

if i were to have made a ladder or "lift" bar with 2 mounting points on the axle, i would have used a shackle.
