This was the most serious carnage for Saturday, kinda odd that it happened really. Luckily somebody had a stock draglink and I had a pitman arm puller.

Do you always carry a pitman arm puller ? Lucky for them that you had it , heck I thought I was the odd duck for having one in my garage .

It's in my tool bag, with a spare pitman arm and some heims for the steering. Having to steer with your winch just really sucks

Thats awesome , I wish you were on my wheeling runs In all seriousness I have never thought about carrying one , but it is a tool that would be near impossible to substitute something else in place of it .

Started giving my lil darling a lil more love, the rear anti rock brackets were bending on the axle and the last outing one of the nuts for the heim on the AR arm side caught under the frame so that is going to be addressed as well.

So what would have been the solution if the pitman arm puller wasn't available? Was the issue the TRE shaft stuck in the pitman arm and no way to get it out? And no room to beat it out, or press on it with something. Kind of a scary scenario, just trying to learn from it. I don't know of anyone carrying a pitman arm puller around.

The tierod end broke in half with next to nothing sticking out of the pitman arm.
There was no room under there to really hit it hard enough to pop the stud out of the arm. Aslo it made getting the tierod end out of the cenrer part of the Currie tierod a lot easier. It's the second time I have used this pitman arm puller on the trail on somebody else's rig so it seems like a pretty darn good tool to carry. Other wise it would have been a lot of hammering to pop the pitman arm of the sector shaft. Done that back in time and does work, but takes a whole lot of beating with a big hammer.

Art how is you rear antirock mounted to your frame?

Can you get me a close up pic I'm looking to make mine more clean. Right now I just have the entire bracket welded to the side of the frame and it looks like ****

Mine has the tube sitting on top of the frame with 2 pieces of plate welded to the top and front of the tube and then welded to the frame. Here goes

Currie sells a specific tube for the tear AR for about 35$. It helps clean up the rear. Or reuse the bracket. Just trim it down and add a plate to it to clean it up.

I used the universal tube and bar.
If you don't have the tube, but do have the bushings, just find a rtube at the steel yard that has the right I.D

One side done, better angle of the arm and rod and seriously doubt this will bend.
