Interesting TJ. Do you think the price is right for that add-leaf that is offered on Ebay? Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

I know I'm resurrecting this thread. I was just curious if you had to replace your U bolts up front. I'm finishing up a front bumper that currently weighs about 310lbs and putting a Warn 16.5 TI on top of that which is another 138, plus rhino lining weight... I was hoping these would be enough for the additional weight, and just wanted to reuse the old u bolts if possible...

Thanks you guys!

I completely agree with your statement, I keep an eye on them and these are factory originals on the 350 with 130k on them. I will be doing them this winter with a new pinion seal. The one on my 250 with a D60 SAS has been on there now for about 5 years. It weighs about 90lbs less, so I think I'll be all right for 5 years or so, and I don't mind doing them on those intervals... I appreciate the words and its good to know I can re-use them!
