So I got motivated to build some after seeing all the pics on here of your bars. Don't really need them except when towing, but they look cool.








Enjoy, all done it was about 16 hours labor and 500 in parts and powdercoat.

Here is a link that helped me decide which bars to build, found it posted on here and thought it was worth reposting.

read the axle wrap article I posted from a jeep site and it explains all the different types of bars and their pros and cons. I found the article in another post on this forum several months ago, it is very informative. That article is the reason I chose to go with this style of bar. We built this whole setup from scratch, hence the long day in getting it finished. The truck feels more planted in corners. I will be towing this weekend and give a report when I get back. Later, Jared
