Default Re: BEAM EXTENDER "FAQ" THE BASICS 101

the hardware required to mount the beam extender depends on how your going to do it.
I would drill out the threads in the frame head and double nut it with thick washers on the back side

This is the way Tequila did his and it works pretty well
he also extended the steering shaft


Palepainter did it this way
1. (4) 4 in 1/2 inch grade 8 bolts.
2. (8) Thick grade 8 washers.
3. (4) Split lock washers.
4. (4) Grade 8 nuts.
5. You will reuse the stock bolts that mount the beam to the frame head. Use these bolts to attach the extender.
