Any setup that uses 2 will interfere with articulation. I'm building my own single central bar that will ONLY stop axle wrap; nothing else. There was a thread about 2 months ago with several pics - try searching...

Plug ugly had a good one, at least I plan to build one similar.Looked simple and strong and from the pics I seen it would flex fine too.

What about the Superlift ones or something similar?

I am also toying with the idea of either building 1 like Plugs or just buying this kit

I was looking at those also but I still need to be able to haul some and that setup don't seem like it would work?

If you can build it then do it, you can build one better for cheaper than what you will buy.

You would need one of these, a welder or someone to weld it and a grinder. If it were me i would replace the single bushing nearest the tcase with a hiem joint.

You can try to design around the materials you have, or you can try to use your materials in an existing design. That's why engineers get paid the BIG bucks! Cobbling something together that looks vaguely like something you saw is probably NOT going to achieve the effect you want. It may only lower your CG.
