Re: U-bolts? Trying to order the correct ones
ok well scratch what I said in my last post, I had to go to Napa and try out like 3 different ones before finding the one that fit just right. The correct Napa ubolts for my Ranger (8.8 axle) are part # 6504003 and they are the only ones napa has that perfectly match my stock ubolts in dimensions. These are 2.88" wide on the inner edges. (The 3" ones seemed alittle too wide, and the other one I posted above that is 2.81" is too narrow.) Brinker I guess I could run some 3" wide bolts but these 2.88" bolts slid into the plate exactly like the stock bolts, without me having to compress them to get them in the holes on the plate.
Also, the 6504003 is the correct 1/2" thickness like the stock bolts.
So the 6504003 is the only napa ubolt I found with a 2.88" ID. But it's only 7" long. That's perfect for me because I don't have blocks. But I know it may not be long enough for the 4x4 guys with factory blocks who need at least 8-9" long ubolts.
