What size JJ for rear 4 link build?

So Ive decided to go with JJs instead of the Ruffstuff heims and am getting ready to place my order. I still plan on using ruffstuff 30* adj mounts frame and basic tabs on truss but Im up in the air on what size joints to get. I know they offer a bunch of sizes. What would work best for triang uppers? I was thinking the 2 1/2" forged w/ 1 1/4" thread because Id like to have a 1.5 tube ID that comes with the bung. Plus they re cheaper than the billit. Any opinions???

ok. I figured 9/16 hw was fine. No need for 5/8 upgrade for uppers. Thanks. Any one else built anything?

My lowers are 9/16 too. I built mine from a rustys la setup. It has those joints front lower frame side, and rear upper and lower frame side, poly at all axle side mounts, and 3/8 jjs on the 3rd link in the front.

2.63" joints all around in the back.
Same for front lowers. Upper depends upon your design choice. 3 link, i would run the same.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
