Quick mod...

One of three mods before our big trip next Saturday. I had these 3x3 posts left over from an old playset. 45 degrees on top and 22.5 degrees on bottom, 3/4" threaded rod with locking nuts on top and the adjustable nuts on bottom. Took about 20 minutes and only cost was my time.

To further keep it from moving, I cut up an old tire so there is rubber on the top braces

If they are, he better weld some metal caps on them. Looks like OEM tires also.

Yeah those are some weird engineered laminated 3x3 wood posts. And those are not OEM tires. I had to get new tires after my axle fiasco
