It's already been given those years to prove itself by many, including the guys over at Savvy. Ignorance isn't an excuse.

Good luck.

Damn. Did I find a tender spot for you guys? Sounds like steel armor beat you up once or twice on middle school. If young and dumb isn't good enough for you how about young and poor?
Oh and my bad if "forged" wasn't the right word.

Poor and dumb were neither good excuses to not understand why aluminum is primo compared to steel in the offroading world, and that it can and will take the abuse you can throw at it. Theres no need to buy into it, its facts.

The less your rig weighs, the better its going to be on the trail. That all goes back to gravity and physics and well, thats another story

Lol, no soft spot. I guess I just expect people to have a bit thicker skin than that.

Who's the one with the soft spot?

Also, I would have to say if you compared the beefy Rokmen control arms to the Savvy aluminum ones the weight savings would be a bit more substantial. Especially when you factor in all 8 arms.

I would be curious to see the difference. I went straight from stock uppers and POS fixed lowers to the Savvy aluminum CAs so I don't have a good grasp of how heavy arms like the Rokmen ones are.

I was reading on Rubicon Owners Forum and they had mentioned people breaking those AL anti rock arms. I'm not aganist AL at all, matter of fact I'm wanting to change my bumper to AL and maybe my skid if I ever stop spending money.

Wonder if there was a bad batch or something. I know a handful of people who have the aluminum arms, one of which is very hard on his Jeep, and none of them have had problems.

Don in Arizona is the only case of a broken AR arm that I know of. He made it a personal campaign to slam Currie about it on every board he could find repeatedly. I talked to John Currie about it and when it first broke, they were out of stock and offered up a replacement steel arm until the aluminum versions got finished.

I'm still not convinced that the arm wasn't pushed too close to the frame and got hung on the bolt while the tire was coming up and the arm got badly twisted. I've done the same to my steel arm and it wasn't pretty, but steel is more forgiving and can be twisted back which I did.

I would have no issue running any of their arms.

I wouldn't have any issue either and don't; I run a set of the steel myself although I do wish I had gotten the aluminum ones. Like I said I haven't heard of any real issues with the AR, so I would imagine this is something like you said; there is more to the story than what we're hearing. Doesn't really surprise me.

Even if there was a genuine problem I know Currie would take care of you, I've had nothing but great experiences working with them. Darrel, Travis and Lorraine at Currie all have gone above and beyond for me more than a few times.
