    Can you cut the axle radius higher so the bottom link could double as a little drive shaft protection? I know you put a great deal of R & D into your products so I know there has to be a reason. What are your thoughts on this?

    Thanks

    The idea with the higher pivot point was to keep the ground clearance. I didn't look at the driveshaft so much since you're going to be 10" or so away from it. With a longbed truck on a really flat ledge it might help you out to have that bar a little below the driveshaft though. With these brackets you'd have to put a little bit of a belly in the bottom tube to drop it down below the driveshaft. I guess this also depends on the pinion angle you're running compared to the bar angle.
