Weather man was right. Rained out. I found out about 12 so I took a nap then went out and messed around a bit. I hung 1500lbs on the front spaced it out to 60 inches. The 2 inch square didn't like it so I'll beef it up and see what happens

Wow! That's 1.5 diesel engines hanging on that. Those bars look pretty stressed. Start bouncing and it would probably break or bend real good

Is that square stock? I'm no engineer, but I do believe tube is stronger than solid bar. Not to say 1/4" wall is stronger than solid, but I think 1/2" wall would be stronger. Not sure if they make 2x2x1/2 though.

Actually I ran this by some engineers at work. It'll be a solid base with the tube on top. The top tube will be the new adjustable point. It was a b#@$�� to get it in the two receiers at once and evenly

Solid is %150 stronger than .25 wall of the same material. He gave an equation of (D4-d4). I'll rock it till it breaks. Time will tell

Whew, that should keep the front end planted!

We had an OSTPA pull here last weekend and I sat for a while and watched them go. Left before the trucks ran, though. I got impatient during the rain delay... They ran 2.6 and 3.0 til about 10:00 that night, but I needed to get home to the wife and kids.
