I made mine out of pressure treated 2x4's and plywood
I connected 2 bags of zip ties together. Then metal safety wire for extra rigidity

You should some JB Weld on the zip ties so they don't melt when you're doing flaming burnouts
I coated them all in hi-temp silicone. I'm thinking of cutting the pole to my deck table umbrella and JB welding eyelits on each end, and water hose clamping it to frame, and otherside to shock brackets soon though

Check out dieselplace and duramaxforum. Lots of people over there have made them. I think I saw a how-to once.

Thanks guess this was the wrong place to ask that question
Punctuation... makes people take your more seriously.

But most people make them out of round stock, and heims. Weld on brackets onto diff. I've also looked for some DIY's, but not much for beginners to view.

I have longhorn fab shop bars. Front brackets weld to frame, rears bolt under axle at u-bolt. If you take the plunge I would recommend a ladder bar setup with a front shackle style connection. I love my bars but they're noisy and allow for no movement at all.
