      does anyone happen to know the measurement of the stock U-Bolts on the rear leaf packs? My truck is a 91, but i don't know if that makes a difference. I need to know in order to get longer ones. If anyone can help me out i'd appreciate it. The measurements I need are the length of the U-Bolt and the measurement in between the U-Bolt near the bottom.

      Thanks

      I have to do the other half of my Warrior skidplate install this morning so will measure them while I have them off. Hope you have better luck finding new U-bolts than I did. Yesterday I went to three different parts places and a muffler shop and they all said that they are much wider than the ones they are used to dealing with....so I just cut the old ones. :)

      The U-bolts on my Sport are 3 5/8" wide at the bottom and 7 1/8" from workbench to the inside of the arch measured standing up. I think they are the same length as 4-door models as Ford put four spring size spaces between the axle and shock mount. Hope this helps.
