I'm glad that I pulled the trigger and installed the unit.
Installed mine a couple of months ago. GREAT is all I can say. No longer feel the passing of 18 Wheeler and no tail wagging the dog anymore. My opinion...do it!!!

I just found one a little cheaper.
20,000 -22,000 lb chassis for $449.99 plus $20.11 shipping for me.
Total $470.10
TigerTrak F-53 Chassis w/20-22K GVW, Dana 135-150 Dfrtl. Rear
Model TT2401

Does that sound right?

The manufactures number is correct. Picture is not accurate.

Thanks. Now I have to see if I can break those 3 bolts loose from the differential. Breaker bar hopefully.

This model looks like it attached to the I-Frame and not bolted thru the frame. Does that sound right?

Iggy the tt2401 is the correct part. As long as you get a Blue Ox TT2401 you will have the correct part. Hope you enjoy.....

Other than a 15MM socket and an 18MM deep socket, is anything else needed for the cheap fix?

I have done the front cheap fix on the front along with the Tiger Trak. Need to replace the rear bushing when I do the back.

Got it installed. Getting the 3 bolts out was the worst part. I finally got them thru using some brute force. My kit was missing 4 of the six big washers but I was able to find them locally.

I won't be able to get it out to see how it does for a few weeks. I'm still thinking of doing the cheap fix on the front before then too.
