Agreed $100 is way to much for these, I don't have them, towed tons of things and never had issues... Spend $20 and just buy angle iron

They're not straight. The factory ones use several pieces welded and I think Shrock uses one bent piece? Not sure on that. You might be able to use regular angle and use washers to space out the curved parts?

Someone already posted my link, but here it is again.


They are really simple to make. I normally like to do a CAD design, but these were just done in the fly. That link has all the measurements you need to make them.

I just towed a trailer from Phoenix to Albuquerque with no noticeable issues.


2004 5-Speed Manual, 4x4
Albuquerque, NM

* 2" Body Lift
* Custom-Built Rear Bumper w/Hitch
* Hand-built Frame Stiffeners
* Bilstein HD Shocks (Amazing difference in the ride)
* PML (Gained 1" in the front and 1.5" in the rear)
* 33" Cooper Discoverer ATP's in 285/75/R16 on Stock Wheels (Great tires so far)
* DIY Timing Belt Change (What fun...)
* Custom Sliders Pending...
