Default OUO adaptable length bolt on kit review

i just want to say that besides dereeting my 6.7, that this setup i ordered from jared are hands down the best thing i have ever done to a truck! any truck!! i wish I would have done this when i bought the truck off the lot... my shifts are solid and firm, no sloppy slinky feeling, my braking has even inproved a ton, and it took about 50% of the infamous 40-45mph hop away!!!

the bars are stout and made well, the cast parts are heavy but also weldable if not wanting to drill the frame.. i really thought of doing that as i jave a bum shoulder but looks and functions amazingly well..

only complaint i have are the instructions that came with it.. lots of parts and skipping around a lil made it confusing.. i knownitnis prolly easier to just throw the hole lot in together but there should be directions for each specific set of bars and bolt on kits. i think what took me the longest was reading and re reading and finding torque specs and the order that it was needed to be done and the step by step on what way to put it together.. once you find each part then its ok as long as you dont put them down and let the wond blow them around.. lol.. did that once.. maybe a list of what is needed for install too.. i didnt know i needed a 5/8 hole in the one side of the bar till i was to that point(yes i should have read all instructions first but i was impatient)and i wouldnt have had that bit if i wasnt doing this at work with the mechanics rig that i have stocked with most everything i needed except a nag drill.. lol

drilling sucks.. as i just drilled pilot holes big enough to start a reamer bit and slowly worked them open to just shynof 3/8s and then finished/squared them off with a step bit.. it took so luch less effort to do it that way and not doing a pilot hole then jumping to a 3/8s bit or inwould have needed to stop a quarter of the way through and paid someone to do it for me due to my shoulder.. but anyway, a mag drill or lots of good drill bits would be needed if you didnt do it my way.. i used two 1/4 drill bits(now junk) one 1/2 inch reamer bit(still like new) and a step bit(still ok but not newish anymore) to drill the holes in the frame.. the directions say a minimum of 8 inches of overlap in the tubes is required. so as most know, the longer the bars are, the better the ride is and betternfor towing.. so i marked the inner bars at 8 inches from the end. lined that mark up with the pilot holes on the outer bar so that puts them at close to 9 inches of overlap then set the bolt on frame mount on the end without the bushing and used that as my guide for the distance of mounting on the frame. it worked out to be 3 and 3/4 inces from the body mount.. after it is put together with the bushings installed and tight, that puts about 10 inches of overlap in the tube so i should be good to go there.. it is tedious job but all in all its more time consuming then it is hard to install.. the small bolts for the frame being small only required 18ft lbs which seems super low and they still spun on the washers when not backed up with a wrench but hey, what do i know.. i ended up haveing to go back through and torque each nut on the fram mounts 3 times though cuz it kept tighting more as it went so i kust have got a couple holes not lined up propper but to get them all to 18ish ftlbs of torque and even, that is what i had to do on each side.. so with that said!

absolutely love them!!!

updated bracket may "look" better but welding mild steel to the frame is a lot stronger IMO
seems like a lot of effort to come up with a cast design?
i guess the bracket assembly was tedious?

who knows man.. maybe it was a production call... might produce more that way instead of welding them together... also, it says its a weldable cast alloy so it must not be a true pig iron cast steel..

I had the same question when I did mine. IIRC, Dave told me it was more cost and time effective to have the pieces cast than to bend and assemble the brackets. Batch casting was a better option for them, and it was stronger at the bushing than the mild steel. Their warranty plan is "if you break it, we'll build you something stronger"

The 101041 & 101044 cast axle bar mounts packaged are only 1lb heavier than the predecessor welded 101041 & 101042(superceded), but are definitely stronger.

The 101020 Beside Frame Pivot Mounts came out about 2 lbs heavier total cast boxed - They are much stronger, and quicker to produce in high quantity for us, so we are much happier. This allows our welders to focus on building more bars, ala's, and traction blocks because we never run out of pivot mounts (we do batches of 500 at a time)

Also Jake, Dave asked me to respond to you about the instructions as well since he doesn't really post on forums

-----------
Per Dave -
We are sorry about the torque spec in the instructions.
The 3/8-24 Bolts should be torqued to 33 Ft Lbs when running thru the frame with nut on them instead of the 18 ftlbs.
We have fixed this typo, thanks for helping us with the problem.
If you used Loctite remember to warm up the bolt to release the lock tight to get a true torque.
We update the instructions every time we print them and try to incorporate feedback to make the install more clear.

right on!.. now that makes way more sense!!

should the nuts be taken off and more red lock tight be used if already set up and re-torqued to the 33ftlbs? i would assume so im case it got to hot and burnt it out..

Just installed the same bars on my 11' ECLB, huge difference and great quality. I'll have to re-torque as well once I'm back stateside, I remember thinking that 18 FT.Lbs sounded a bit light but figured it had to be right.

Amen to that. I've used and abused mine with towing, sled pulling, and hauling hay trailers over some nasty uneven terrain, some racing, and they've taken everything I've given them and asked for more. Awesome product

I ran across this issue on the passenger side. I drilled the bracket to secure the Christmas tree strap.

oh chit!! so if the frame length and body mounts are the same and i figure i have 10 inches of overlap, and im 3 3/4 inches from that body mount, you are probably under 6 inches of overlap since you are kinda tucked under the mount some... hmmmm

Well, probably you were thinking about making a post on PSA instead of properly tightening the u-bolt(s).

I doubt the rear was going anywhere with 160ish lb ft on a 3/4 bolt.

Maybe some odd reason it didn't torque right the first time.

Just did these to my reg cab....big thanks to Midwest Diesel & Auto

Awesome packaging, beautiful finish on the product, excellent install instructions, outstanding design and quality.

Smoothed out the shifts, stopped the terrible recoil action when coming to a complete stop or taking off aggressively. Minimized the 45mph hop but notice a slightly sharper rebound on bumps-probably because of the short wheelbase.

All in all, should have done it sooner.

That was my thought too, and for now, will be one of the first mods on any other truck I own.

I just helped a friend of mine take off his existing traction bars that came with his truck and we installed a set of OUO ones. He couldn't believe how much better the ride quality is with the new bars. It is so hard to convey to someone how nice and well put together OUO's kit is. I have had lots of truck parts over the years and nothing compares to this stuff....

When I ordered my first parts from them, I bitched a little about the cost. But then when I opened them up, it really just blew me away. I had never seen anything packaged as well and how nice the parts are and how great the kit is. It is just hard to convey to someone that you are not going to regret spending this money. When you have everything unboxed and spread out you can really appreciate how nice the kit is. There is absolutely nothing out there that compares to this.

My friend is about as cheap as it gets. Now he has OUO Adjustable Link Arms, OUO Adjustable Leveling Kit, OUO body lift, and OUO traction bars..... He can make a buffalo squeak and this is what is on his truck now...

The reason he bought the Ram is so he can drive around with the mirrors flipped up.

just measure the overall length of the bar right now, if it is 82" or under, you are ok.

Cutting the overlap down to the minimum 8" might be a good idea for future installers, mine rattled like crazy until I shortened the inside section of the bars. A ton of chatter bumps on these dirt roads doesn't help

You could've wrapped the inner tube with tape or used some RTV to dampen the rattle.

There was a batch of bars where the tolerances were off causing the bars to rattle.

You're a little past recommended overlap I would say....probably not totally detrimental if you aren't sled pulling etc but I'm not sure

not necessarily.. that is the entire point of "adaptable" length.. can fit many configurations. just needs a recommended 8 inches or more of overlap to be properly installed.. ouo makes a solid one piece bar too..
