Single shear mounting is never a good idea for something like shock towers. This support ties the mounts to the frame and prevents twisting of the front end. Highly recommended for hard and fast riding.
I watched the installation video before I started and referred to it a couple of times during. It was very helpful. No surprises. My Baja Designs shock tower mounted LED light bar bolted right up. It did completely hide the TMW lighted logo, so I didn’t bother wiring it up. The only issue I had was that the brace placed a lot of stress on my radiator hoses. In fact, one side was nearly collapsed. Fearing restricted coolant flow, I resolved the issue by placing insulated hose clamps on the radiator hoses where they contact the brace. This not only holds the hoses open and prevents kinks, it will keep the hose from rubbing on the brace over time. I would rather rub the paint off the brace than rub a hole in a radiator hose. Easy fix. I’m very happy with the purchase and installation experience and I have a lot more faith in the strength of the front end.
excellent product , good service , easy install
Excellent excellent excellent
Easy to install while I had the entire front end taken down for parts upgrade. Worth the investment.
