    Good evening everyone, I thought I would show a teaser of the front strut bar that I made for our Hellcats.

    I'm just working on the jug now!

    Lol sorry auto correct on my iPhone. No it is DOM tubing and correct you do not have to remove the factory cross brace.

    You will have to drill 2 holes to secure to the cross brace though.

    I'm trying to shoot for the same cost as the rear strut bar however until I get pricing back for the laser cut brackets and a couple other parts I will have to wait and see.

    As the bar should be bolted to the factory support bar, I have a sleeve made from DOM that get welled in where the bolts go to prevent the tube from crushing which is an extra cost.

    Just a quick question? Will the billet technology strut covers work with the strut bar?

    Guess I'll figure out once I receive it. Please let me know when you start taking orders for the front. :D

    That's great news!

    Now my only problem will be if I should powder coat the strut bar red or another color? The BT covers might not stand out anymore o_O
