The current 2" and 3" versions (with 3/8" u-bolts) have plenty of u-bolt 
length - I suspect the other sizes do as well, but I've only got the 2's 
and 3's in front of me.

The 2" has 1.5" of bolt thread showing past the saddle when mounted on a 
2" OD tube. The 3" has 1.25" of thread showing when on a 3" OD tube.
