Nice job guys. Out of curiosity. Did you get much sag in the rear from the extra weight? My CJ lost about 1 1/2 inches after getting mine on. Looks great!

Forgot to ask you to make a bracket or something to mount the plate on the tire. I should be able to make that up. Thanks !

Looks like a de-sta-co clamp normally used as a work holding device in an industrial application...used them all the time at work. Great usage of it, bumpers look kickass!

I don't work there anymore..I said "used" meaning past-tense haha
You can get them out of McMaster Carr or Grainger, or even Bond Fluidaire in TC on South Airport has a catalog and they can order them for you. They have so many different configurations it will make your head spin...choose wisely :sonicjay:
hope this helps

Thanks Guys,

Nice job guys. Out of curiosity. Did you get much sag in the rear from the extra weight?
I would say it sagged less than an inch if that.



Where the blazes did you get that latch from?
Yes Cartman is correct, it is a destaco latch. I get them from a place in Auburn Hills but thats along way from TC.

DJ who's barn?
Its in the shop at Franks house, it is a very nice set up.
