Went and picked up 2-2x.250x60" dom bars are the local scrapyard. 18.30/foot. Started prepping the bars. They were covered in some sort of grease. Guess it was there to help protect the bars. And used my angle grinder to put a bevel on the ends to get better weld penetration. Also ordered 2 axle link mounts to place the bar lower on the axle to help keep it from twisting. Since I'll be under the truck welding anyway should I put a few extra beads between the axle tube and the pumpkin? Dont plan on alot of hard launches or anything but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
