Made of steel, had a look at the website. I mean yeah looks good but really would of been stronger if it was made of tubing, better still ally tubing. You got dimentions of it, could see if i can look into better manufacturing

Did you need to replace the bolts with longer ones, or are you still using the OEM bolts?

No scrapping, but if I was lowered it probably would

So how do you like the 2 braces you added?

I've been looking at these braces for a while so I just pulled the trigger. Looking forward to installing them. I bought the Mid Chassis Brace and the Rear Mid Chassis Brace.
