    Specifically I'd like a shot of the 1-ton/early GM/IFS truck style upside down square bolts that are really beat up. And it would be great if someone had a shot of those beat up nasty ubolts actually hung up on a rock or log or something. About all I can give you is your name in lights next to the pic in our catalog, and a sticker.
    Any takers? It needs to be a decent size jpg or gif that so I can work with it.
    Remember, I can only pick one and there will be some personal preference involved since I get to pick it!
    Thanks!

    Yeah I have pics of them, I just look at any one of the "spare" one tons we have here for a pic but none of them have seen much offroad action yet so they don't have mangled ubolts. I'm after really nasty bent smashed ubolts that are shown digging into a rock.

    Oops,

    I must have missed this one. I've got upside downer's on my truck for the time being (about 2yrs now...) If you don't come up with any, please reply to this and I'll get them to ya ASAP. It shouldn't be any big deal other than running out and snapping them with the ol' digital camera. One thing though. I've got the plates, but I'm using different bolts vs. the square ones. They weren't long enough after putting in the 2" blocks.

    Let me know if this will help!

    the GM trucks used pointed down u bolts through '72 and continued this way on at least the 1 ton dually vans in the 80's cuz i have anb 81 1 ton dually van out here 14 bolt FF and all and its got 9/16" pointed down u bolts with the old 72 older cast iron cups under the tubes setup

    i assume all 14 bolt ff are 9/16" bolts now and dana 60 ff also.

    wonder if dana60 and 14 bolt are all 3 3/8" tubes, wish i had an accurate way to measure the tubes of this dana 60 ff out here,, hmmm
