Wrapping Is just the axle wanting to roll with the wheels. It is predominant with springs and space blocks, but the term is still used with all forms of suspension.

I'm just sayin that if the arms are spaced 6 inches instead of 12 inches, that makes everything have to work harder to keep the axle in place.

I'm just sayin that if the arms are spaced 6 inches instead of 12 inches, that changes the load on the brackets exponentially.
I see what your getting at.

It's not the system that I would have used if I was adding the 44 to the Jeep, but it seems to work pretty well and hasn't caused any problems in the 9 years or so that it's been on. It definitely does not limit the Jeep at all.

Here is a picture of what you are looking for, one thing with this setup is it keeps the caster angle correct through the entire range of motion.

Nice, I've got the same ones sitting in my garage, still trying to decide what color to paint the "spiders"
Great work

Decided to use JK turn signals up front and finally got around to drilling the holes, got them wired and all installed.





I really like how they look and the same plugs for the stock TJ turn signals plugs right into the JK lights.

Okay, I know I haven't posted progress in a while but I was busy working on little stuff and reassembling and today it went for it's first test drive. Everything is working pretty well just a few adjustments needed. Still need to modify and re-install the belly skid plate and the diff skid plate and paint the new hardtop. Here are some pictures that I just took today:










It's nice to be driving the Jeep again, it only took 2 months!!
