Is it an optical illusion, or is that one DOM tube thicker than the other two. "IT" looks super beefy.

You generally run thicker-wall lowers than uppers......so yeah. I'm betting that's 2" .25" wall and 1.75" .120 wall.

I see no issue. Cut out some gussets to match and integrate those mounts into the truss. And also, don't assume that they'll sit that close to each other. Unless you're placing the frame mounts as far foward as they can go, they definitely won't sit that close together.

It definitely appears like link mounts were an afterthought when designing that truss, though. That thing is awfully narrow.....regardless, you can make it work.

Lu, mounts just need some trimming and fitting. Your getting into the realm of custom link suspension, parts that are meant for universal application don't always play well together and will take a little work to make them fit properly and to your liking. That's just how this custom fab stuff goes buddy.

You could always just get a clayton truss, and have them cut down some of there arms to make mid arms. And you would just have to find frame brackets. Just a thought

few small updates:

-Still waiting on my front bilstein shocks
-Ordered some Coil plate mounts with retainers from Ballistic Fab
-Cancelled my Superior Evolution series axle shafts order after receiving an email that after 2 months there still is no timetable
-Ordered Superiors Discovery series shafts and got some cash back
-Selling these http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f127/...-arms-1369237/
-Will be taking the cash once I sell those arms and after selling my rear shortarms for some Savvy alum front arms.

4link rear surgery may start this weekend if my buddy has time. Pics to follow once the jeep goes under the knife.

That's not hard to do with Lu's thread. He's throwing money at his rig like its a high class call girl.
