    18" inside to inside. 25" outside to outside. 4 3/4" openings. there's a little wiggle room in the measurements obviously

    Thanks! My Tepui Ayer straps are 25" outside to outside exactly. Should work perfectly!

    Nice. I think it ended up being 25 & 3/16" or so. It's a lil more than 25"

    Mine just arrived! I'm pretty happy with the quality, stout light weight and compact not bad for a 85$ Insurance policy

    Yep. They appear to be decent product. Hopefully they'll hold up to the abuse.

    Oh and the X-Bulls are 41 7/8" across (slightly shorter than the other brands/models), and the 'between the wheel well' dimensions are 42", so that works great for me since I have a giant canister there for my Retrax retractable tonneau. I can use the dead space underneath the canister to stow these bad boys.

    *EDIT* Actually, now i'm seeing the length measurement of the X-Bull's as being 110cm, which is 43". Can someone who has a set take a length measurement for me when they get a chance?

    Mine fit between the wheel wells of my 2nd gen, so you should be set.

    I used them this weekend to recover a civic that slid into the shoulder ditch of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Worked pretty well.

    Buyers of the Xbulls. What generation do you prefer? i was thinking about buying the 2nd gen ones as they are 80 dollars and the studding seems better pronounced. But it seems most of you besides one got 3rd gen xbulls. Are they essentially the same no matter the generation of boards?

    Just picked up a set of the X-Bull 3rd generations...

    Looking for a way to mount to my Hauler racks...might go with what @t.hornstra recommended...

    @t.hornstra do you have any pics you could post of your fabrication?

    My biggest problem is my racks are about 60 inches apart...


    There's a slot on the underside of the bars...so I'm thinking about getting two lengths of flat bar to connect the rack bars...and then just drill holes to line up with the X-Bull holes.

    Trying to figure out the security / lock strategy...any ideas?

    didn't go through the 3 pages, but I really wanted maxtrax as they seems superior, but just couldn't justify the price tag, so I bought those X0Bull.

    hopefully won't have to use them often!

    I have had the red x bulls over a year now, they have been great used several times. Well worth the money... only notable benefit I see maxtraxx has is that they stack much thinner... I carry four so they are kind of bulky
