Description

Our Extreme Duty U-Bolt Kit is made for the 78-79 Bronco It does not fit the 73-79 F150 4x4 and the 77 1/2-79 F250 4x4.
The force and stress placed on stock components by off-roading is enormous. We noticed that we were bending the stock U-bolt plates. So, we set out to build some that could take abuse. We also noticed the stock 1/2" U-bolts were pretty weak so we increased them to 5/8". It may seem kind of simple to take a piece of thick metal and drill some holes. We have seen these types of plates. The problem is the edge of a plate like this causes a ridged pressure point and can cause the spring to break at that point. We invested in tooling that routers the edge of our plates. In doing so, we are able to keep a stock type edge which compliments the spring when it's articulating. Most aftermarket u-bolt plates are 3/8" thick. We think that's way to wimpy for most wheelers today. Our Extreme Duty plates are 5/8" thick steel zinc plated for looks and corrosion protection. The 5/8"x 3 1/4" x 9 3/4" u-bolts are also zinc plated for looks and corrosion protection. Before you buy an inferior set of plates and u-bolts take the time to add up the cost because the inconvenience of poor quality will long out live the thrill of a bargain.

These are a must have for trail runners and rock crawlers. Keep your rear axle and springs mounted solid!

This is great product you should be using if you're wheeling or crazing the streets. I've purchased two sets and will again for every Bronco I own.

The only U Bolt kit I would ever buy

Great Kit. Seriously strong and the correct width for Bronco springs. Super heavy duty plate. The only thing keeping 5 stars is the plate is not plated or panted. Looks like it is plated but 3 weeks later had surface rust. Remove and paint took care of it.
