So what are some pros/cons of 3/4 link, I know most but just wanna see. I'm really liking the synergy suspension set up, heard nothing but BEEF!

I know 3 has less binding but I'm not wheelin this thing all to crazy since I do DD it. Don't get me wrong ill try dumb stuff but not to bad. I'm probably going to bump up to around 5-5.5" of lift for a little more clearance. I like how their arms are bent for clearance too.

So 3

Or 4? I like that the 4 is a bolt on.

It's right there in those kits.

Those look awesome. I also like "bolt-on" mods better.

the only difference with the kits is that the 4 link uses the stock UCA mounts on the axle. the 3 link has you weld a new link tower to the axle to accomodate a 2-5/8" joint.

the brackets are almost exactly the same, except if you get the 3 link, the drivers side bracket doesn't have the upper link mount. if you can weld, there is no reason to run the 4 link.

those kits are really well put together, 2 of the most capable full-bodied jeeps I have wheeled with run the 3 link.

and FYI, those frame brackets are "bolt" on, but they really should be welded.

pic of it installed on a manche. he built his own arms without any bend since he went with a wider axle up front.

also thinking about a bumper like this.
not sure if i want a winch or not. i would like to keep the bumper close, having something stick out a foot infront of the jeep is pointless to me. might try and build one along these lines, but the grill and stick a winch in there as far back as possible.

Same kind i want to build, would be so easy to make. And also if you cut the front xmember out you can put a winch behind the bumper and hide it.

I was torn between the T&T LA upgrade or the RK 3 link. 3 link was definitely at the top of my list, but I couldn't pass up the deal I got on the T&T kit last xmas. Great price on the kit plus free frame stiffeners.
