Artec back-half frame kit
 
Has anybody ran this setup to back-half their frame?

I'm really thinking about picking one up for my build as it will make running coilover hoops a lot easier in the back of my Jeep. Overall it looks like a really solid setup they made, so I will probably order one this week but before I did I wanted to see if anyone had experience with it.

Here is a link in case anyone is curious too look at it for themselves.

It's really new....there's one guy on Pirate using it but his rig is still under construction....the pictures in that link are actually his. It looks good to me.

I was looking at a few pictures on Pirate. That's originally where I saw the kit. I didn't realize it was so new. I guess it's just dumb luck that they come out with it as I'm getting ready to back-half mine. I may as well just pull the trigger and be a guinea pig. It looks pretty stout.

Damn it, If I would have seen this earlier I would have went this route. Would not have had to cut all of the factory frame mounts off and ended up with a better solution for the rear end, I am at a point I could still do this. You have me thinking....

I feel your pain. I'm happy I started cutting brackets off the frame in the front and not the back. Regardless, it looks like the upper and lower control arm mounts will still have to come off the frame in the rear so you didn't waste too much time hacking off the coil perches.

The more I look at this kit, the more I'm sold on it. Pretty positive I'll be going this route.

Keep us updated if you get it, I called Artec yesterday and spoke with one of their guys. He said they are taking orders and plan to ship at the end of the month.
