trac bars support.. help....

ive been debating on weather or not build up some trac bars..

finally i got my truck back from the shop (remember my post of the "rodeo mod"...) and started looking under the truck to see possible places to mount the supports on the frame for the traction bars ands afet a while jjust sended the idea to hell...

well i still want ones so it the ones that got can take some pics on the supports for the trac bars, both on the frame as on the axle..

asking as im not very informed on the subject so any help would be great :)

btw i did search but it wasent enough..

i have one with the shackle on the frame.

biggest thing, make sure the shackle goes UP from the mount, the bar wont work if the shackle goes down.

mine's like 5" hole to hole and i didn't have an issue with it at Katemcy minus the whole bracket breaking off the axle I'm using the axle end bracket from Ruff Stuff, Give him a call and he can sell you 3 heims instead of 4 (he normally sells them in pairs).. And its made out of 1.25x.120 DOM.. Its not broken yet. I would recommend making it beefier, i only made it out of that cause i couldn't find anything else local in the time i needed it.

I need to find my damn camera, if i can find it or use my step dads I'll take some pics when i get home.
