Savvy and Rokmen both use Johnny joints. The Savvy arms will be aluminum. You can buy Currie arms for Gerald at Savvy or other dealers that are steel. Gerald is great to work with and is very helpful. They have the cheapest prices on equivalent arms.
Here are mine:



The aluminum versus steel thing doesn't matter to me on the control arms. I mainly bought mine from Gerald because he is always so helpful. It is probably the best customer service you will find.

If you ever go 4" of lift and get a TT, then you will definately want Rokmen arms. They are the only arms with enough adjustability to do both. Unfortunately they are back ordered and Im still waiting for my rear UCAs to ship

They are the same price as the currie steel. Gerald is usually a little cheaper on everything.

If you've been following the thread, You'll most likely have seen that most of the picture links are broken. I did some cleaning out in my photobucket account, I'll try to fix them eventually. The only update is I did a 1.25 inch BL, and a 1 inch MML. I'll edit the pics in from my phone later.

That's the only good one, I'll try to snap some wheeling pics this weekend.

Ordered a CB radio, Not much else has happened though. I'm going to get an SYE, and TT with my birthday money. Will post when I do.
EDIT: I'm have to put in new Rear control arms before the TT so I can adjust my pinion angle. So, thats whats next. Savvy Alum uppers, and steel lowers. bling time.

Well, I'm finally fed up with looking at my ugly *** stock rear bumper. I've been waiting patiently for Metalcloak to release their rear bumper, no luck. I'm going to go ahead and bite the bullet on the Rokmen rear bumper (http://www.rokmen.com/rokmen-rear-bumper.html). I'm supposed to be getting a few small parts today, I'll post up when I do.
I'm afraid that over the next few days Metalcloak is going to release their rear bumper...

I love that bumper, I also like the Swag offroad Big hit bumper. It is very similiar to the rokmen. I am trying to make a crossmember cover if you will that I hope will turn out kind of like those. IF not I will buy one. LOL

Damn, swag offroads bumper is almost $100 more than the rokmen one. And the only thing that will be bad about this one is that its going to highlight my BL a bit more. Oh well,
