Hi guys, names devin, new to the forum and to WJs. I just picked up a 2001 WJ with a 6" rock krawler LA lift for $1500! Cant really beat that huh? All it needs to drive is a new cv axle.. so I thought... I was under looking around and noticed that I have no passenger side UCA.. had anybody ever seen this? Normal? Im totally new to wjs and lifts (I also have a 03 kj so im not totally new to jeeps) thanks for the help in advance
i believe at one point, rock krawler made a true 3-link for the WJ. I may be wrong. but its probably just like the IRO set up. Its a radius arm on thew driver side and a single lower control arm on the pass side.....so yes, its fine
2002 WJ Limited [B]4.7[/B]: 6" Clayton REALLY long arms....yep, they are longer than yours [B]SOLD : ([/B]

2007 WK Overland [B]5.7[/B] wifes DD
As already said yes Rock Krawler does not use the upper on the passenger side, i believe that's the same lift a member on here has (85Irocz-28) . He has some awesome flex pics in his build thread over in general discussion if you want to see what to expect.
edit...He beat me to it

Wow you guys seriously just made my day. Thank you all so much for the speedy response. Im excited to learn more about these jeeps and i CANNOT wait to get this baby on some trails. I live up here in Fairbanks Alaska so she will see some good use
EDIT: Mine are different that the one above, two piece instead of one piece. That design above is better IMO. The RK kit when through a few generations on the design.
I took some pics for a friend a few years back. Just look at the arms direction to orient yourself. The lower arm bolts to the bottom of the unibody frame rail, the upper control arm bolts to the inside of the unibody frame rail, inside the frame and above the location of the lower arm, at the same distance from the axle:
Distance it is from the unibody rail:
The RK upper link uses a heim on the body side, here is a closeup:
