DIY ladder bars

I looked through some old threads on here but didn't find what I'm looking for. Out of you guys who have fabricated your own bars, who has pics, advice, measurements, parts list? I have found some, but I would rather save the money and make my own.

Re: DIY ladder bars

Here are some pics of mine. I think they came out to 6' eye to eye. I made them at the same angle of the drive shaft to prevent binding. Used 2x2x1/4 wall square tubing.
