How do you have your setup, over the axle or on the link bars? 2 link 4 link? If you have them on the bars, make sure they are reinforced or gusseted. If they are over the axle, build a bridge or gussett the shit out of em. Are the brackets at least 1/4" steel?

I have them on the link bars. They are from F.B.I. if that tells you anything. The only thing is, we mounted them with the gussets made on them pointing down. Will that matter? They are normally for over the axle, but fuck that. Link bars rock!

um, lemme get this straight, correct me if i read this wrong, but you mounted your bags above a f.b.i. four link, in a canti setup? If so i'd replace those bars. I live with in an hour and a half's drive from f.b.i., i've been friends with the guys that werk there for a couple years now. And those 4 links are not made for that type of setup. I've heard of atleast three guys who've mounted thier bags over these bars. And all three 4-link bars failed with in a 2-3 months. Idslam you is right tho, gusset the living shit out of it
