I have the Rock Krawler upper triangulated arms and they work with the stock exhaust.

They have a bend in the arms to clear the exhaust.

I do not think this is the best solution though. I'd rather have straight arms and work the exhaust around them.

i always wondered if i could add the rk upper triangulated arms to my crapper lift since my lift basically used drop brackets on the uppers.

You could add the RK arms, but I would ditch the drop brackets.

The RK kit comes with bracket reinforcements for the stock upper brackets on the frame.

my main concern with using the rk kit was the diff in height from your lift to mine.
do they use the same kit in their taller lifts?

I got the Poly Performance 4 link rear. Not installed yet though. But compared to the RK kit, Theirs are straight with a JJ at both ends, and its tubing, not solid, ( so lighter ) Then you weld the threaded bungs in place so you can make the arms whatever length you want.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

yes, but wait for a 10% off sale... ( which they were having when I bought it )

The complete RK kit is $2800. Only thing it includes is springs over the PP front and rear kit.

That could be a difficult comparison to do.

What criteria would you use to determine the winner?
