My forearms are screaming from all the rows and pulls in the current program.  I miss my neutral grip pullup bar I took down from my joists when I sealed up my insulation so I figured I'd order a multi-grip bar for my rack.  Rogues version was $145 + shipping.  Titan Fitness was $64 with 45 degree bars but was listed as being 42" long.  That is exactly 1" shorter than my Rogue rack's 43" width.  One Titan review mentioned it was 43" so I took a chance.  Yep.  It was 42" so I had to either send it back and wait another week while spending more than double or triple for the Rogue version or shim it with spacers.  I shimmed it with $7 in additional bolts and washers.




I moved my old fat/skinny bar to the back and it really does a good job keeping the rack more stable like a gusset.

Lol.. I did use washers to lower my skidplate and transfer case one time to stop vibrations until I changed out my driveshaft from a lift.  I probably could have saved some money if I knew where they were.

I was chuckling since when we used to install lift kits at the local 4X4 club it was always someone going "I need X amount of washers to make this damn thing fit".
