RE 4.5" Tri-Link Long Arm - INSTALLED!

Not a ton of pics yet, but I wanted to show at least a before and after shot...I also had the Teralow 4:1/2Low/SYE installed at the same time. I'm still waiting for the Rear Driveshaft (... or a callback or reply email from DC4WD to tell me where it's at )

BEFORE -
2" RE BB, 1" BL and 33x12.5 MT MTZ's


AFTER
4.5" Rubicon Express Tri-Link Long Arm, 1" BL and same 33x12.5 MT MTZ's


I think the 33's tires look a "tad" small, but since they are new, and I've dropped so much change recently, I think I will have to stay @ 33" for a while before I can think about moving up to 35's...

You'll be happy you stuck with those 33's once you get on the trail and flex the crap out of that RE system.

"Have fun out there"

I've always wanted to say that...

Well can't get anything too "flexxy" till I get my Rear Driveshaft... I expected it today, but I have no clue where it's at ( and not too happy about it )

It actually doesn't look too bad with the 33's...not too bad at all. Nice rig.

Can you give me an idea what you had to do to the exhaust to fit around the tri-link? *couhgpicswouldbegreatcough*

*edit #2* just out of curiosity, did you weld the inserts in the frame, or just install them loose?

I was thinking the same thing. What's your wheelbase now?

Might be an illusion? Compare it to the before pic. Doesn't look much different... if anything might be a tad forward?

I think the current pic looks like it is more forward than the before shot, but still seems off center. I mean, its a great looking jeep don't get me wrong at all, I'm just saying
