Re: Aggie007 Traction Bars
Yes, I am still rockin' stockers... I know....it's sad. Hopefully new wheels are tires will be an option this year.
I am in Rockport now, so no plans to go to Ennis this year. I lived down the road for a few months from the Ennis track, though, sweet set-up. I assume you guys are going? Curt and I should be at heat wave. Have you been to any of the diesel shootouts in Houston?
Yes I drilled the frame for the upper mounts. Just below the mount for the gas tank strap. I put a block of wood in the frame so I wouldn't poke a hole in the fuel tank, brake line or vent line that is in the frame rail. I used a step bit since it is short for the upper bolts, then the lower bolts just a standard 1/2" drill bit.
The lower axle mounts could be easily modified to use u-bolts, so it wouldn't have to be welded on.
Hardest part was figuring what length and making it work due to the mounting issues with the fuel tank, lines and wiring in the frame rail. I drew a lot of cirles on my concrete to be sure my links will flex with my leaf springs, then ended up using Autocad to be sure.
