Self tappers may work on the snap-up bracket, all depends if the threads will hold the down-ward force placed on the bracket. The problem is the thin wall of the A-frame tube.


Ok, bringing up an old thread.

I still need to make some adjustments to my DC set up, and after reading through this thread and looking at the pics above, i have realized my DC is the early version and my u bolt threads are facing inward. This was installed this way by the dealer, thus just another reason why i feel it needs adjusting further.

My question is, what issues would this cause with the u bolts in the incorrect position?

I know on my setup there is not a whole lot of clearance. Maybe on a tight turn the u bolts may rub.
