I hope so, Jay at DMC uses 1.5x1.5x120 so I think this should be flex free.What size did you use for yours??.

1x4 solid and it is holding up great. Took it through 12" flowing over a low water crossing and the exhaust sounded awesome. It was only 30 yards wide.

I like them high performance hex spacers to shorten the caliper bolts. It took me a long time to fabricate mine.

I bought the top of a old welding table for 10 cents a pound and then painted my wooden bench with some old fire proof paint ( pink!!! ) and it works great.

So you're going to take your allen head caliper bolts out of your work truck to put em on the hack?

Brilliant!

Screw work, ride bikes!
