Not exactly what I remembered reading but my previous statement is still true...if you tow. I can't find the original article since every two/three months I mail several boxes of my old magazines to the Middle East to whatever troop the Army sees fit to read them. That is unless my little brothers deployed and I send them to him.

Picked them up off of CL. I was in a bind since I was dealing with the return of the other pair. I have no idea what brand they are. Fitment was off a little so I used a lot of the OE mounts and hardware.. and a few washers... but its came out pretty good.
