Hey, Mike. I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend.
I really appreciate your extra effort with my installation. Unfortunately, I am returning the longer trac-bar that you sent me. It turns out that the length of the bar is not really the issue.
Bear with me here:
In the first photo, you can see that the bar shown in your brochure install photo and the bar I originally received are more or less the same bar.
Here’s the problem: Either the plate is wrong or my axle is wrong.
With the plate on the flattest part of the axle, it is fully underneath the frame rail. In this position the frame would undoubtably smash in to the plate and bracket during travel.
With the plate in a position that clears the frame rail, the bar itself is actually the correct length but the plate is awkwardly placed. There’s no way to U-Bolt this securely.
I’m not sure what my options are at this point. Any help or suggestions you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
