Custom Panhard & Steering Bar?

Does anyone know where I can find a compnay that can make me a custom panhard and steering bar? I've tried calling OUO and Truck Toyz and just keep getting the run around. You figure that people would be jumping for you to spend your money!!!

Ok saw you are from LA. There is a shop in Pasadena, TX called BNC Off Road they are pricey but do very nice work. They built a buddy of mines truck and it was top notch. They specialize in one off lift kits.

OUO doesn't offer the drag link and trac bar setup by themselves......since to do the trac bar you pretty much have to do the entire system the way the upper and lower mounting points are integrated into the system.


I thought I had been contacted by you before via PM and discussed this I may be mistaken, not sure who you spoke with on the phone if you were given the run around though.

The thing is I have a OUO Front cross-member. I can use the trac bar and the drag link if I can get it.

Where did you get the OUO crossmember?

Got any pics?



OUO is very particular about proper geometry to assure that everything works together and performs flawlessly, which is why mixing and matching parts isn't something that is done. Everything is centered around the OUO 3-link design for perfect geometry, if you try to adapt it over to your Rize 4-link that is stretched out to 16" of lift it may not handle properly as you are dealing with different geometry and different upper and lower trac bar mounts. So, it's not exactly giving you the run around, just not selling something that isn't designed for your application.

BNC can and will help you...even if they build it as a one off design.
