I'm going to pull a part in a few and figured I'd ask on here before I carry a 50 lbs tool box around. What size sockets/wrenches do I need to take them off?
I had to use SAE on the bolts mounting the hooks, but a larger metric, i'm thinking 17 mm or higher on the bolts to the frame. Had to use adjustable for the SAE ones. Also, bring 1/2 drive for the frame ones as the ones I tried to get off were on there quite good and a longer handle would have been much nicer.
Hears the voices
Most of the front end is 15mm and 17mm

Reliability is relative

The bracket is really nothing more then a peice of steel with nuts welded on it.. Grab some steel take a drill and line the hole up and mark em and drill hole in them and there is your bracket
