per the formula double shear would make that point twice as strong. you double the amount of area where the shear would have to occur at.

but even with that bolt being in double shear, the size of the bolt, and the design would make it hard to hold up under any real offroad conditions.

and whats all this talk about the axles being low. id be willing to bet those axles have lets guess hes running 44s. thats a bit of axle clearance no matter how you look at it

You are correct, the mag is in front of me and its the same jump and everything.

Yes, double the shear area, but you are also removing a huge bending moment that's caused by having the bolt act as a cantilever. So you actually end up more than doubling the amount of force needed to cause a failure. Throw in the fact that this is a cycling load (fatigue), and you are getting huge benifits from double shear mounting, much more than just the fact that the shear area is twice as much.

All that custom color and masked line x and it can't even sling mud. They should have painted it.
