    they are made of cold rolled flat bar,much stronger than the cast factory ones. i have beat on my truck and have not even tweaked them. i bent the uca cross shaft and possibly the coil buckets and they are still going strong. for it to be worth my time it would need to be at least 3 sets. materials alone for each set is about 80 dollars plus my time to make them cost will be about 200 maybe less (im gonna look into getting them cut by a shop) these took me a super long time to make so i think its a pretty fair price. my set with cutting and drilling and grinding was about 6 hours.(more or less cuz i did them in my free time with a grinder lol) let me know what you goys think and if youd be up for a set. so far i have one for sure. buyer will pay shipping to them if not local to me.
