Since my track bar itself is already a pretty nice piece (adjustable and included with the BDS long arms), I might try to retrofit something to support that a bit more while trying to avoid replacing the whole bar. FWIW that stud on the driver side frame rail has a little play in it. The BDS folks tell me it's rebuildable though.
single shear track bars loosen up constantly with any wheeling. i couldnt keep mine tight to save my life, and i only had 31's. even when it is tight, you can see the bolt flexing a lot when someone turns the wheel while you watch. i got a $60 rubicon express double shear track bar bracket and it fixed that, stiffened it up completely.

nice work on the tank skid, i too had wondered about making armor out of aluminum since it's lighter and typically has a higher yield strength than mild steels.
