Correct me if I'm wrong, but the V brace kit eliminates the brace under the rear of the car where a towing receiver would go. It saves you some weight is my understanding. I have one of Mike's kits here, I just haven't installed it yet. Looks like a quality piece. I'll take pics when I do the install on mine while I've got the back end all apart.

The v brace is under the big plastic sheild you see when you look under your car from the rear/center. There is a huge ass piece of metal bracing under there that the tow package connects to. If you remove it, then the plastic has nothing to mount to and it will flap around all willy nilly. Mike's delete kit is an awesomely tooled kit of bushings, spacers, washers, and all the bits to be able to remove the brace and give the plastic something to hold it up after the fact. Awesome mod, well thought out, well machined and worth every penny. Much like 2qwik's products, the only bad thing is it is covered up and/or hidden so you cant see how awesome the pieces are.

Down to a few sets. These will not be back in production anytime soon. Jump on a kit if you've been thinking about it before it's too late.

I want to make these again, I'm out. Anyone else want a kit? If we can get enough interest, I'll run a few and make some more kits. Maybe a group buy?

I'm making special low price stubs at the moment. Maybe I'll do some after they are done. I'll let you know.
