Clayton Offroad long arm flexing

Just got the Clayton Offroad long arm kit. Anybody have pictures of their jeep with the same kit flexing? I have heard it flexes really good, just curious to see other peoples jeeps. I have about 4" of lift.

About 4 inches of lift, with the Pro 3/4 link front and rear.







And a video that I've posted on the forum before, but it shows the flex


In all honesty, the Clayton long arms will articulate like crazy... It's how you set them up and get everything dialed in that makes the difference. I'm really starting to understand this now that I've put Metalcloaks on and so the fenders and flares aren't the biggest obstacles holding back my tire movement. It's finding a harmony of all the parts underneath the rig that is the challenge. I feel like I've got a great rig, and it's really capable. If I were fine with that then I would leave everything as it is (Minus installing bumpstops which I know I need, just haven't done). But it's the fact that if I take the time to really dial everything in and make it perfect that I'll be even better than I am that keeps me tinkering with things. And it also makes me realize just how in over my head I really am and it's going to take some serious time and effort! Just my $.02.

I'm happy w mine also, I feel Clayton has their angles and lengths etc set up great. I used Clayton brackets and built my own arms, used their JJ also. I am running RE springs currently but don't like them. Here's mine w 37s 4-Link Rear 3-Link Front.

I do get flamed for square control arms but they have held up great.

I was worried about the square arms too but they have a lifetime warranty that says they'll never bend, so what have I got to lose!
