- Cut for 3.25" diameter axle tubes on the 8.8 axle. May be used on other axles with minor modifications.*
- Made from 1/4" thick boxed steel plate for strength.
- For use with factory TJ sway bar, not 8.8 sway bar.
- The STYLE of the bracket gives a unique, custom one-off look you'd get with a high dollar fabrication shop. No more brackets that look like modified pieces of angle iron or c-channel, but rather formed pieces of artwork to show off.
Installation of this product requires fabrication and welding skills. If you are not confident of your abilitiesplease have this installed at an off road shop.

Place Wheel chocks at the front wheels and lift the rear ofthe vehicle with a jack . Place jackstands under the rear axle and lower jeep securly onto the jack stands.
Remove the rear sway bar from the vehicle.
With the sway bar removed from the vehicle, Use an angle finder to measure the angle ofthe mount. Record that number forlater.

Place sway bar mounts between the differential and rear coil spring mounts. You should have 5-3/4" between the center ofthe coil spring mount and center of the sway bar mount. Use your angle to matchthe angle of the original mount and weld into position. Repeat this step on the opposite side.
Prime and paint the sway bar brackets and axle tubes whereyou cleaned for welding (We found rustolem products gave us the best results)
