Are you worried the front is going to over-perform the back? Or are you building in stages?

Sorry for all the questions!

Oh i dont mind! My truck is 75% jeep at heart so im focusing more on how well it can flex which i why im keeping my shackle in compression rather than flipping it. I will build a small bedcage soon hopefully becuase my rear shocks are not even close to being in the right spot lol.

I dont remember what his was like but I will build a simple one soon. my buddy just got a tubing bender so once we get half decent at that and welding we are going to get cracking

His just went side to side at the front of then bed and came back at the sides for a foot or so. I think he bolted it using the bed bolts at the front of the bed.

I have a traxxas T-Max 3.3 I can beat the **** out of that thing and I havent broken a thing yet. I upgraded all the plastics to RPM. That stuff is indestructible.

The double row lights are pure crap but these new single row versions are almost as nice as the big $$ us made bars. Ive been so busy that i havent time to get better pics or a write up but between me and a few friends we have tons of different styles and brands to compare with. Be patient yall!

Buy the single row bars with confidence. The quality and output is top notch
