Has any one got some measurements for the plate to do a u bolt flip on a 90 Toyota truck solid axle. Going to use some 10mm plate with the ends bend up(similar to allpro).Any suggestions on what would be a good length, seen some articals where if you make em a bit longer may help with axle wrap. also does anyone know the axle tube dimensions


Thanks Rhino

So what's that, about 3/8" plate (American Board, American Rules). I'd figure out a traction bar setup and go normal length plates. Longer plates will limit your droop. Maybe not much, but every bit counts. I used Chevy U-bolts on front and drilled the plate to be snug on the springs with 5/8" U bolts.

10mm = 3/8" which seems much thicker that the All Pro units on their Website.

Anyone know the thickness of All Pro's U bolt flip top plate?
Looks like 1/4" to me.

What size U bolt do most of you use 3/8" or 5/16"?

And NO, the reason I would copy theirs is a compliment, it is just the Oz$ is pathetic to yours so some parts we have to make ourselves.

This metric conversion stuff screwed me up.

I meant to say the common size U bolts of 16mm = 5/8" or do you go upto 11/16" (17.5mm).

Sorry about that.
