sway bars and chains

Wabbiteer,
The hitch comes to within a few inches of where the hitch I now use is so I feel confident that the virtical location of the ball will be fine. but I wouldn't have chacked that with out your comment. Do you have or know antone who has a set of them (sway bars) that they would like to get rid of?


May the force be with you!

eek! See page 14 of your Airstream Owners Manual... Hitch slightly higher than 'level' is proper; with a 31' trailer it can be very important...

And no, ya can't have me sway bars, but I could be talked into purchasing your hitch ball assembly since with new axles on trailer raising it up I might luck out height wise (or earn a trip to shop to re-arc F-150 leaf springs)..

Will consider selling hitch

Wabbiteer,
I will consider selling the hitch if I can't use it. But I will first attempt to put it to use on my F-250 7.3 Ltr Powerstroke Boi-Diesel (which by the by has got a slightly higher bumper than my old F-150) so things may well line up just fine over here.

Also I couldn't help but notice your website on RE and Alt Energy, kinda hard to follow as it was mostly a photo gallery, but it looks like you are into some interesting Re and Alt stuff, do you have an informational website? I work in bio-fuels and would like to know more about what you are doing up there in Minnesota. Please visit Yoderville Bio-Diesel Coop - HOME and Welcome to Flying F Bio-fuels to learn more about what we do down here in Iowa. Hope to talk more with you on the subject soon!

As always...

May the Force be wity you!

question for overlander63

overlander63,
Would these replcement bars work with the hardware I have pictured in previous post (May 7, 2007 8:11AM)? It looks to me (with my untrained eye) that they would, but I would trust your opinion more.

As always... may the force be with you!
