On my way out of my hood I found this poor guys truck down the street. Just caught fire from the front end some place and burned it down. Hot fire too. Get a fire extinguisher.
Apparently he likes his Dakota well done.

the ZJ fronts measured 15 3/4" center of the hole to center of the hole (or was it 16 3/4, I just remember the 3/4") the WJ ones measured 15 7/8 so they were about 1/8" longer

I heard WJ rear LCA's are like 18" or something. if you are looking to stretch the wheelbase out, you can prolly use some sort of bastard setup with WJ and JK control arms or something

either way, these things are WAY beefier than the joke ZJ/XJ ones. fully boxed and alot bigger. had to trim them some and hammer on the top portion so it wouldnt hit the axle at full droop but nothing to compromise strength.

Yea I envied them big time when I looked at my wj on the hoist. I'm gonna have to crawl under a wj some day. Nice part is they provide better Clearance as well right? As far as tire clearance.

yep they are curved to give you clearance. I was rubbing on my stock ones at full lock, I dont rub on these. also they are rounded so there is no sharp edge like on the stock ones.

im going to have to trim the frame mount a touch to fit the UCA's, but it shouldnt be much of an issue. they are fully boxed too and probably twice as strong as the ZJ crap. I thinkt hey ran me like $120 for the set of 4 so its a good cheap upgrade for people not lifted too high

ill do a writeup tomm once I get the UCA's in

Awesome. I'm looking for a little longer set as I am putting iro 3.5 in my bb truck, previous owner measured 4 out of them. When I put it on the hoist it didn't matter what height I put it at it never changed the rub point so I'm thinking longer arms.

First time I looked at the wj I had on the hoist I thought, WOW, this thing is an improvement, then I got to know the 4.7, and tried going through some mud, that tcase sucks. Sold it.

I was wondering this as I was reading would it help center up the rear wheel on a 3.5 inch lift

id will push it back 1/8" if the stock arms are the same as the front lol

then youd have to do something about the uppers as it will throw your pinion angle off
