Re: Prerunner Enthusiast's Thread

My main thought when putting them in was more contact between the bumper and rear crossmember, with focus on being tugged out of the sand lol.

Re: Prerunner Enthusiast's Thread

Re: Prerunner Enthusiast's Thread

I meant what do the bolts go through at the ends of the crossmember, bushings? Heims? Just metal to metal?
