Basically the best thing to do is look at as many bars as you can and then see which parts you like and order them from companies to make your own custom bar.

I don't see why there aren't any custom bar companies out there, it seems there is a need for them....

I agree that it would be super to have a custom bar company out there. Just like JayFactory did with the spreader bar when they introduced the Dynabar ... make something better than the stock stuff that exists now. A customized bar with replaceable parts would be super.

Whoa Hat, I don't know where to start.What the hell is that thing? It's hard to tell from the vid how it's rigged, but it looks like a line loops from one bar end thru a center pulley at the power lines and back to the other end. I guess that means there's no sheeting--which makes a depower setup kinda useless, huh? Well, more power to you. :lol:
