Yeah I saw that too. I wonder how it will compare vs buying everything yourself. Or what kind of geometry it will give you

It'd be cool if it was a 3/4 link with good geometry and no rear trackbar. Depending on price id consider putting the Savvy arms on my my Dad's LJ and running that.

Sounds good, The Cal4wheel ones are fun and in our group it's usually not waiting on a bunch of newbies the whole time like Jeep Jamboree or something. The raffles are pretty good too.

Sundays just a few buds going wheelin though not part of the event.

Had some fun at Hi Desert Roundup 2014, Stoddard Wells and Calico. Didn't get too many pics this time around because we were too busy wheelin.





Bam Bam went for the gatekeeper but ended up cutting a sidewall.





Lost my fender and put my first scratch in the rub rail too.

Also forgot I was chasing down some shimmys on the highway and found that the TRE on the passenger side is toast. I'm guessing from my Savvy tie rod not bending like Currie designed it. I think if I were to do the Currie steering setup again I would go with the regular tie rod.

Looks like it's not replaceable so new draglink for me I suppose. Or maybe time for some real steering.

So anyone care to educate a newb on 4 links? I haven't found much info on what brackets/trusses everyone is using and I can't remember from everyone's builds. Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough. Here's what I've come up with so far. Any experience with this stuff? All suggestions appreciated

http://shop.davescustomsunlimited.co...p/rst-2kit.htm

http://shop.davescustomsunlimited.co...d44truss-1.htm

http://www.artecindustries.com/Truss...nts_p_182.html


http://www.artecindustries.com/Dual-...air_p_253.html

http://www.artecindustries.com/Lower...air_p_252.html

And we'll start with one basic question for now. How did you do yours, leave the lowers where they are or tucked for clearance?

I like my lowers even with the axle tube, less to hang up on and helps with wheel hopping. Frame side to get good geometry they need to be a bit below the frame, but helps to move them inward of the frame rails a bit. Artec trusses are nice. Lot of the aftermarket stuff is a bit to tall for me gets into the floor, unless you run a ton of lift. By the way, you are welcome to swing by my house and take a look under my Jalopy to get an idea

I was thinking the same, I would be a happy camper if I didn't bang my CA and shock brackets all the time. What's your opinion on the Artec frame side mount I linked above? They look just like Poly to me. I didn't realize Artec came out with a rear truss for the 44. Looks alot beefier then the one I linked earlier. Thanks for that suggestion.

Thanks for the offer I might have to take you up on that. I definitely will be able to get a better idea of what I'm doing if I can check one out.

Artec brackets are nice, Poly stuff works good also. My bud Curtis did a mid arm with those, damned thing works really well for a stock wheelbase TJ.
After 10AM tomorrow I should be tinkering, you are welcome to come by.

Looks like the 4 link on the TJ will be pushed back just a tad.

Pick it up on Saturday
