    Steve do you know what brand of dual steering stabilizers the Bummer was running in the 99 top truck challenge?I wanted to know because he has them mouted on top of the tierod so they arent hagging down so rocks can tear them off.thanks for any help

    i'll pop in the tape and look, I think all he did was flip the standard end to end bracket over. give me a mintue to fast forward for a good peek/forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    It's in the 2000 not the 1999....not any good shots of the steerig stabilizers, if it's not a flipped bracket then it's made.
    be easy to make too, just copy the trailmaster one I have sitting on my bench./forums/images/icons/wink.gif/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I asked, he thought it was a superlift, maybe. Too long ago to remember specifically but he does have a Tuff Country kit on his wife's bummer (now sporting 1-ton drivetrain and the 44's) and they're the end to end style.

    Steve do they sit on top of the tie rod or do they hang under it?

    I haven't seen them, I assume you can put them on top, that's how Aaron's was set up. Maybe I'll order a kit in here to take a look at it. Stabilizers weren't too big a deal till everyone started running big wobbly tires but now they're pretty important.
