looking for a spot to put the antiwrap bar without moving gas tank. I know it should be as close to the center of axle as possible but has anybody put it on the passenger side of diff? thanks Capt.
heres a couple of picts
will get those picts out to ya soon,,, Does it matter how long the front shackle is that comes down off of the front coss bar , attached to anti wrap bar? Being that there is minimal amount of front movement and up and down pressure from axle torqe, the shackle could be 4" to 5" or the shorter the better???
Looks like a shiny first install shot - any after shots to show damage/grinding from the shackle hanging that far down? How badly has it hung up - if at all?
Not being hyper critical - but I'm getting ready to replace my current setup (FJ80 front trailing arm reversed) that has the shackle on top - with something that hangs down like that - but I just can't see it surviving the stuff I drag my belly over....and I don't have to work around a tank.
Since you have the newer style tub (gas tank underneath) there is plenty of room to tuck the front shackle up behind a skid plate. Hope these pics help. Also notice what I was saying about the drive shaft slider. Jason does great work.
I would have run the top tube to the end of the bottom tube, but it looks good. If you did not use thick enough wall tube your failure point will probably be at the red line. The other common failure point is ripping the mount from the factory cross member / torque tube.
Proffits cruisers is similar to that as well with the lower bar extending past the upper...a friend busted his on the Rubicon a couple years ago at that same spot in the bar and promptly blew his pinion.
Ideally you would want the upper and lower bars to converge at the ends, or real close to the end.
