    Just get the book from them and look it up yourself. I've had to do that several times. It all starts when I say "it's going on a vee thirty five hundred" and they respond with a "a what?"

    Yep, there's a whole write-up over on Pirate4x4 about the 14bolt straps. It illustrates through pictures that the only good ones are straight from the dealer. Pricey from what I understand.

    Do not get the straps from Napa....actually don't get them anywhere except from the dealer.

    If you are hard pressed for a few, I have some spares i could mail to you. Just let me know.

    They do not fit correctly. Wrong profile/arch.
