Re: Traction bar bracket template(PIC)
That looks alot like my template. I allowed 6" center to center for the bushings and left 1/4" additional material around the edge for protection. The front of my bracket is almost perpindicular to the ground. I think it will be hard to have a cantilever setup and not have contact issues. I have thought about moving my bar toward the pumpkin outside my brackets and running a bolt all the way through from the outside. That would give me a couple more inches of clearance and would allow the brackets to remain on the tubes. The only issue with running the bar outside the brackets is that it puts more stress on the bolts. I am going to see if I can move the top of my shock over to get some more clearance. If that doesn't work, I will try the long bolts, and then welding to the pumpkin.
