    Thanks man. You should make some. They're pretty easy to do. Knocked these out in about a hour

    Worked on anti wrap ladder bars a little more on my '78 K20. Welded on another bar for added strength.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Those home made parts look awesome. How well do the brazed parts hold up to a beating?

    It's not brazed. I use metal work solder and a propane torch. It holds up really well. The bumpers is soldered too and it has taken a hell of a beating. I accidentally ran it into my concrete steps and the only thing that happened was one of the d-rings broke off.[​IMG]

    See if you can shorten the back the axle by a bit so they don’t stick out as much
