I get mine from 4WDH, usually get them there while I am there picking up other parts.

As for weaknesses, I have bent a few spring plates before doing any damage to the u-bolts. I need to find new stronger ones....

If you don't think Ti has bolt strenght, then all the bolts I help make for over 20 yrs for the Atlas 5 booster rocket(and many other)were a mistake then. According to you
NOW--Back to Jeep'n

Wow! sweet job. I presume the boosters are going to space?

Here are some uses for ground dwellers, the first pic is CP and 6AL4V forged together, second is 6AL4V liners and backstrap.





As a side note, I am 90% sure the OP was kinda joking about using ti for his Ubolts, I was kinda going along with it.

But seriously, test first if anyone does use ti on a Jeep in a critical location. Safety first, Chuck Yeager probably flew most of his experimantal flights w/o his family. LOL
