Default WTB:Large U- Bolts where to buy?

I nee some very large U-Bolts (Actually square) 4" x 20" These are needed to bolt my Myco Boat lift cradle to my 4 post boat lift. I have a 8" x 3.75 tube setting on top of a 6" x 10" I beam and need to clamp them together.


I could use some bolts and plates but a U-Bolt would be better. Any sources?


Thanks

Ray, that is a trailer or truck type item, maybe.

A good spring and axle shop will custom bend them for you. Square or round. I paid $10 a piece at Grand Rapids Spring & Align.

What Mitch said I had some made for my trailer in BFE Louisiane a little smaller but he did them in less then the time it took me to use the restroom and 3 were less then $20 after tax. Call spring shops. Rag's

I found a local spring shop to make them. They ended up being 3/4" dia 4" spread and a 20" leg. They were about 12.00 each. Now I need to get some 2" angle to make the bracket that they will clamp with. Thanks for the suggestions!
