|Hums99||Might need to put a bend in it also. What size lift are you running? I'm running stock pitman arm with 4.5" lift with new tb bracket on the frame.|

|Hums99||Looks like you could go back to stock pitman arm. IMO|

Finally got the wj knuckle and brake conversion done and drove it to work today. Brakes work way better. Did not seem to have any bump steer so not sure on whether I am relocating track bar or maybe put a shorter pitman arm to get them the same angle.

|MUDRUNNER AZ||Just the upper is triangulated. It's the wife's so did not want to get too out of the box for when she street drives it. It does work great and it's built way beyond her capabilities. I will post some picks tomorrow.|

|MUDRUNNER AZ||No I did a triangulated four link in the rear no track bar. And the front is for link soon to be a radius arm setup.|

Slowly rounding up my parts for the front long arm build.

Ok here it is pretty much finished with the rear all thats left for the most part is to get it aligned and pinion exactly where it needs to be but i have not drivin down the street due to no exhaust so its on the trailer now to head to the shop tomorrow.

|97flexy||I'm hope'n your right, on the front not take'n as long. I'm about to start a radius arm/d44 swap on my tj. I'm really hope'n to not have many issues.|

|05-22-2012 06:55 AM|
are you going to long arm the front, or long radius arm the front?
|05-21-2012 11:52 PM|
Well it moved under it own power tonight. Just needs exhuast now so have not drivin it but in the driveway it's rather loud.
Truss with mounts at 45 degrees
Upper and Lower frame end mounts
Passenger side mount about 2 in from cross member.
Driver side mount about a 1/4 in away as the cross member is shaped different on that side.

|97_JEEP_TJ||Thanks! It looks great and can't wait to see more.|

How did you know how long to make the arms?
I'm just staring to work on a 9" for the rear of my TJ. Is there a trick to figuring out the right length and angles?
|05-13-2012 11:34 AM|
All welded up and painted now it's time to install. It is finally coming together.
|05-09-2012 04:18 PM|
Its been a while but here are some update pics.
|03-19-2012 05:18 PM|
Not sure why they did not load the first time so here it is again.
|03-19-2012 01:18 PM|
We finally got some free time to work on the lower arms and got them welded up and in place just need to paint them up. then the uppers so this thing can be on the road again.

|MUDRUNNER AZ||I had thought about it at first but i have looked at all the ones around here that i wheel with and they dont seem to get in the way that i have been able to see. I also have 35's so the ground clearance is pretty good. It does mostly the moderate trails as its the wifes. i have an xj for the really hard stuff. This one is built to do the harder trails but she is not at that level yet. Still learning what it and she can do. She is coming along well tho. My upper are going to be mount pretty closes to where the lowers are.|
|01-23-2012 03:10 PM|
|my98tj||that lower mount looks like it hangs real low. have you looked at moving inside the frame rails to get it up out of the way?|
|01-23-2012 02:21 PM|
|OklaTJ||Looks go so far.|
|01-22-2012 10:20 PM|
An update so far.
Truss being burned in.
Rear of the truss
Front of the truss
Lower mount tacked for now.
More to come as time permits.
|01-18-2012 05:07 PM|
|MUDRUNNER AZ||I had planned to do that as well. not sure if i am doing the weld on or bolt on. Thx for reminding me.|
|01-18-2012 02:25 PM|
|klpossinger||Hey, while you're in there, I would suggest doing the weld-on coil bucket relocation kit for that upper mount, makes the jeep feel a lot more solid and it's cheap.|
