x2 ARB is great. I had the pressure regulator go bad on my mini compressor and they sent the part out no questions asked. They also rush shipped it so I could make a wheeling trip. SuperWade also recently had an issue where the gears were installed wrong, and they still warrantied it.

I just had to call them up on an OME shock warranty, and since we couldn't figure out what was going wrong they said "Okay, let's throw some parts at it" and ordered two new front shocks for me, free of charge. Great company to do business with.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

How happy are you with your metalcloak front track bar? Looking at getting one for when I swap my ZJ OME springs in the front of my TJ. I was going to just drill a new bolt hole and keep my stock bar but the new bar from MC looks like a nice upgrade from the stock bar.

When I saw that, I went full on furious on some cardboard boxes in my garage. If the neighbors across the street recorded the event, it would already have 1 million+ views on YouTube.
In case of lack of parts you can splice or brace a piece of copper line to it.
Been there done that Either silver solder a new line into the collar or braze the existing line with some brazing rod they use in the refrigerating industry.
That is if that is what stands between a wheeling trip or staying home.

You use a phosphorous copper brazing rod, http://netbraze.com/phos-copper-brazing.html
Home depot used to carry those. Works very well for repairing cracks in brass radiator tanks also

Still waiting on the part from ARB. Aside from bolting up my front drive shaft and t-case skid, it's ready to wheel. But this has also been a really busy summer and my new boat and rejuvenated interest in wakeboarding (and other things such as paintball) isn't helping.....

This is the first summer in a long time that I've spent more on other hobbies than the Jeep. But it's time to wheel and as much as I enjoy the other stuff, nothing beats wheeling.

Anyone know where to source 2x1x3/16 or 1/4" 6061 angle? Apparently a leg difference of that nature is impossible. Gonna make up some trick new seat brackets if I can ever come across the size I need.

If you can't find it, you could buy 2x2 and rip one side down to the proper width.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

Alright, I'll just have to cut it down then. I figured that if I couldn't find any on the dozens of online material retailers, it didn't exist pre-cut.

Right now, I use 2x2 steel brackets to adapt the seats to the factory sliders and I'd like to lower the seats down at least 1". If I'm gonna spend the time making another set I'm going to do it with 6061 angle so that I don't have to worry about rust. It's plenty strong enough so I don't want any aluminum vs. steel argument starting.

Buy some flat bar in the thickness your looking for and have it bent at a local shop. Even if the size your looking for cant be found have a chunk sheared so the end result will be what you want.
Nothing beats doing the way you want it done.
