    keith...

    I have seen member pics of fabbed ones here many times... Im surprised no one posted up for you...
    obviously if you look at the factory one and think... how can I make that stronger...i.e. heavier material and cross bracing thats the ticket... pretty simple I would imagine....

    sorry Im not really helpful... someone will see this and post up...
    ask KidJethro or one of the fab guys on the forum

    Well Dpdog bent his first before we boxed them. Z the thing. So we went back boxed his and mine and everything has been fine for several years. The top bent side ways right were it attaches to the bushing. I have been lazy. Lots of times its just as easy to buy it already done. than to fool up to save a few bucks
