    Any one have a picture of their rig with a set of these axle trusses installed? I bought a used set and I am trying to figure out the mounting bolts. The bolts look like shock bolts for a chevy truck?. If anyone has these on their rig can you help a fellow wheeler out. Thanks Jeff

    I know someone must have a set on their rig or know someone who comes to this site who does.

    i HAD one on, but after it caught on every rock at tellico, i took it off. make sure you have all the hardware to mount it up.

    rt side- 2 semi-circular metal pieces with bolt holes on each side wrap around the axle tube and tightening these bolts "clamps" the tube. there is a little tab that sticks out that goes under the ubolt (i think, because i ground mine off!)


    middle- same as rt. side mius the little tab.

    lt side- the bracket is a little different as the semi-circular mount has 2 little tabs that mount to the truss and the bolts will be fore and aft of the axle.

    damn, this sounds confusing----i will try to find some pics though

    I went to your picture page and saw you had one on the front. Did you ever have one on the rear? If someone can find a couple of pictures I would be forever thankful. I have the drivers side mount but I seem to be missing the passengers side. I contacted Rhino and they have a mounting kit for 25.00 so i think that will be money well spent
