Sorry guys my internet has been down all week but I just made a set about a month ago and ill go take some pics this afternoon, mine cost me $138 in parts from a metal shop for 2x2 square DOM tubing, a 4x12 plate of 3/16 steel, 2 3-point tractor hitch bars, and a piece of 3/16 channel steel I had in the garage. I only did square because I wanted to do something different. Mine measure 7' 4". They're really long and made a HUGE difference, the Spartan shifts sooooo much smoother even on 310, and no more axle wrap.

How do you setup the bars for the track or for a pull.
