Limit Straps

Does anyone have pictures of how they mounted their limit straps? Also, what length are they?

Have you seen casey's? (camodown)

I think he had limit straps once, then bought some limit chains (awesome looking)

Maybe he will chime in the next time he wants to talk about his power wagon lol.

did those mounts come with your lift for the upper part? it seems the lowers are just through the LCA. also, where did u get the hardware? I know ORW has the straps, i talked to them on the sizes the have available. Gonna have to guess to get the right one once i get the truck and if those are 10's ill prob need something smaller since ill be BL'ed

i found the clevis' for the bottom on the site. Can't find the uppers though. I'll call monday and find out but the smallest strap is 8" and that will probably be too long. Worse case, ill run another washer up on the top of the shock lol

8" will work depending on where you weld the upper mount. They also sell custom length limit straps.

I would probably get the 10" straps. That seems to be what everyone that has stock suspension is running. If you get the adjustable clevis then you have room. I run 12" straps with an rcd.

Sorry if I am too late

i forgot about this lol. Thanks for the input. I'll probably shoot for the 10" w/ adjustable clevis. I hated hearing front end at the dunes just smashing because i was maxing out my shocks
