The geometry of a long arm kit as an off the shelf non custom product is compromised due to packaging constraints. The frame side of the rear uppers is too close to the lowers which drives squat right off the charts. As a rig starts to climb something, the too low level of anti-squat built into the geometry causes the front to rise due to the back being pushed down by the suspension.

If they could have shortened the arms about 10" and moved the uppers up higher at the frame, they would climb a lot better. The issue lies in the length of the arms being so long they have to be low to clear the cargo step at full stuff. They let packaging dictate geometry which is not always a good thing.

Hey guys, ARES Armor in Oceanside was just raided by ATF agents earlier today. On Wednesday a Court granted ARES a restraining order against the ATF and revoked the ATF search warrant. ATF is supposedly using falsified documents when they broke into their store and have apparently confiscated all of their customers information.

To me, this is bull****. I'm halfway surprised someone hasn't been shot...

This is completely out of control. I've spent lots of money at ares armor and have also done lots of research on their 80% parts. They are great guys and very professional. I'm not saying I own an 80%er but if I did and the ATF came to my doorsteps to grab it... They won't be taking it from warm hands. That's all I'm saying.

Sounds like about 3 to 4 days of playing at Blaines.

BTW: You forgot to add the swaybar relocation brackets.

We had fun out at Ocotilllo Wells over the weekend. The wind was blowing pretty hard on Saturday but let up in the afternoon. Both night's campfires were calm weather. I got pretty toasted on Saturday but I didn't fall in the fire pit.
We followed Pole Line to the wash, then all the way down to Superstition.
My Jeep blew out the rear shocks on Saturday morning so the rear was bouncing all over the place. I had to drive pretty slow the rest of the weekend. No other issues with my Jeep. I don't think Chris had any real issues with his either. His sand rail started blowing oil so it sat most of the weekend. The kids rode the quads all weekend with no issues.
No flat tires on any of the rigs to or from. I got free electricity (the Obama plan) from Chris' generator most of the weekend. I haven't used my motor home since TDS two years ago, and my generator runs for about fifteen minutes then shuts itself off. I'm dropping it off at the service place tomorrow. Need that generator working well. What if there was a zombie apocalypse or something?
We had a great time out there. I was trying to find the smoothest path along a wash and got on top of a sand berm and slid sideways into the wash wall. I was running 32 pounds in my tires so it didn't handle the sand well. Had to air down to get off the sand berm.
Chris was goofing around going at a wall trying to climb it, hit his front spring knda' hard and inverted his shackle. Just hit the gas and the spring went back into place. It was an ugly looking wound tho'.
I've got some work to do on my Jeep before next trip out.
Here's Chris' battle scar.... I think he has a pic of me up against the wash wall.

I was there on Saturday while ATF was inside. Oath Keepers were the only ones there putting up any sort of fight.

That's me in the hat, in the reflection

To me, anybody working for the ATF and is willing to violate peoples Constitutional Rights, is nothing but ****.

I'm going for tacos.

The ATF agents themselves are just following orders. You have to look up hill for blame.
