Center Yoke Mount - Photo
« on: February 07, 2014, 12:50:22 pm »
With the simple to use on-line program suggested by Coconut in a different thread, I manged to resize a photo of the center yoke mounted Ram ball.  Other than the Ram mount which I had on hand,  I have less than $5, and about 10 minutes of time invested in this.  Took me longer to figure out how to post the photo.  :084:

Link?  I just learned how to reduce the photo size.  :084:   Let's see what I can do here.  This may be a link to an earlier thread when I decribed the steps I took for this mod.

Thanks for this.  When I mentioned link I meant the link to the actual work you did so you provided that.  Thanks again.  Very helpful.

Similar Ram ball mount using Maple Farkles solution.  I didn't inquire, but you could probably mount two Ram balls on this same cross piece.

Finally.  Someone noticed.   :017:

Not risers per se, but 1" spacers with longer bolts.  Not an original idea from me.  Someone else suggested it last year.  I'm convinced that it has helped me.   Before I get a talkin' to... I know some had concerns last year when this first came up about the integrity of using spacers and the reduced contact area.  I contend that as long as I have good contact on all three (per side) contact points, with the SS bolts torqued down properly it is basically the same as stock.   Anyway that is my story and after many miles I am sticking with it.
