Picture Request: Long arm control arm mounts

I was toying with the idea of building my own Long arm setup. I already have drawn up plans for a belly-up skid plate with the separate brace for the trans.

I was wondering if anyone has pictures of where their control arms mount on a long arm setup and also how their oil pan skids mount.

Any suspension set-up whether it be tri-link or 4-link. I am just looking for ideas.

Thanks .

my RK longarms attach to the tcase/tranny crossmember skid.

But genright makes some cool control arm brackets for the rear if you didn't want to use the the skid mounting points...





and here are brackets for the front links...



it says its for a 3 link setup, similar to the rockKrawler three link... but then you have a track bar in the front so it is really a 4 link. I can tell you that the 3+1(tb) link setup in the front works great! flex is amazing

Thanks ygohome. Do you know if there are any pictures or the fron setup up on the jeep.

I found one of the rear and I like it. Do you know how it rides though?

I've not seen the genright setup other than what they have on their website. But if it rides anything like my RK setup (3 link + trackbar in the front... upper and lower link on drivers side and only a lower link on the passanger side) then the ride will be great. I daily drove my jeep to work approx 60+ miles each day round trip (and I'd make double and quad trips when I'd go to the gym at lunch and in the evenings)... drives straight and smooth. has alot to do with the correct alignment and caster, soft coil spring rate, good shocks and joints that don't clank/clunk all the time. But if you got good components and rebuildable joints you'd be golden.

I'll see if I can find some genright photos... there's gots to be something on the internet that will show em

Yea, I like the idea of the 3 link front + trackbar. I am kinda curious to see where they mount their trackbar. I am assuming they can not use the stock mounts.
