From the looks of it, it's VERY similar to the RCD stuff. Bolt on brackets to the trans x-member and I assume bolt-on to the Superlift rear x-member whereas RCD has brackets built into their rear x-member.

I will likely do these when I do my swap sometime next year.










Looks good KLC! Are these the ones that Jake sold...or???

Yes, the design is very similar to the RCD set-up. And, yes, Jacob made them, but I "refined" them for my satisfaction, i.e. welds, cuts, paint, etc.

Added pics to original post. Hopefully these help. I could not get very far off because the shots came out too dark.

i don't mean to bring up an old thread but I'm looking for a way to mount my limit straps now. What did you use for the upper end of yours? is that a fab part you purchased somewhere or did you make that mount?

I purchased the mounts from Off Road Warehouse.

Not sure who you are asking, but very good. Much better than stock, even with a lift.
