HighRever777 - we will get you hooked up!I received my extreme brace... tried a dry run... watched all the videos even read the instructions for a change lol..
Can't get this to fit. I have a 2017 HC, stock exhaust. I do not have cross member threads, so I have to use the provided bolts and lock washers. These are 15mm.
My issues this far.
1. Passenger side bolt appears too long. It is hitting the diff support housing. Maybe 4 threads too long to get it tightened down enough. Suppose I could cut it down to size.
2. None of my 15mm stubbies will fit into slot on crossmember, nor will my fingers.. maybe there is a micro 15 mm stubbie out there? All the instructions and videos I have seen identify those bolts as 13mm.. did I get the wrong bolts?
3. The extreme brace I received has a rear perpendicular piece. This almost entirely covers the rear slots. Once it is in position, I don't see how I can get my finger or a wrench into the slot to hold the nut while I tighten the bolt. The examples I have seen in the videos and the instructions depict a brace that is flat and allow a straight shot access angle to the cross member slot. Is this the brace for the 2017 HC?
I really want to install this, the construction, powder coating etc is all too notch...
Anybody out there have these issues? Maybe the bolts are too big or this is not the correct brace for my year? Maybe I should just get the standard brace? My car is gone stock..
Will attach some pics... any help would be greatly appreciated.. thanks View attachment 483193 View attachment 483195
8mm nuts/bolts are supplied with the kit for when you have threaded sections in the cross-member
10mm nuts/bolts are supplied with the kit for when there are only holes (no threaded sections)
I'll send you a PM and we will get you hooked up!
