Frame tie-in's on the cheap

I used old TJ track bars. I have about 15 of them in the back yard. This is not all that hardcore but It was cheap and did require some welding and cutting.











I also did the front under my feet but forgot to take pics of them. I'll get them posted up later.

Did you really have to have the bend in there? It would be stronger with a straight tube to the tie in points. Better than nothing i suppose.. good use of what you have on hand.

Looks good to me. The panhard is strong enough to hold the axle laterally during a roll or cornering so it's definately up to this task. Well played.

Cool idea, good use of junk parts. But why not use the straight end?

At least it's got rubber bushings-that makes it more impressive than some tie-ins done by supposed pros (I won't name names). I doubt anyone would've guessed their original application. I've got a couple of similar suspension pieces at the shop that you've given me an idea for.

I used the straight part for the front part of the cage tie-in. I'll post pics later.
