Hey Khris,

Any reason I wouldn't want the radius arms off of Whitey?

we did it the first time alone. It was just me and the wife. I just put her in the drivers seat and spotted.

This time it was me alone with the kids... They were out cold when I went past the entrance and I was not going to start getting in and out to pick my line. That plus if anything happened the wife would kill me.

Why would you need to get in and out to spot? Idk, maybe I just know my jeep really well and know where and what it can do.

My biggest thing is my breakover angle. With the new trans, there is a steel fluid line that goes up to the cooler... and of course they put that line going underneath the trans.

The suspension on Whitey doesn't have to be able to cycle correct? Do you care if the beams are ****ed after? I am thinking that it would be possible to just weld the beam to the frame. That or weld something to the frame and beam in place of the radius arm.

As long as it can roll up onto a flatbed to haul away, that's all I care about. We could probably make a insanely basic set of radius arms just to get it out of the yard honestly.

The heims are okay but will eventually need replaced. For rock crawling the JD arms would be great. If you want to do some high speed stuff too you'd want to beef them up more. Also, the trans crossmember isn't included, I kept it on red and worked the other arms into the mix. Obviously, IMO the dual tube arm setup is better or else I would be running the JD stuff myself.

I am going to guess rear. I am sure if it was ment to be a front Dana 44, he would have said TJ Rubicon front d44. But just a guess, and i am a bit hammered ATM, so, good night good sir.
