They also make a front truss that I'm considering...

|flattietj||i guess its pretty beefy and it looks really good..sorry i doubted the design based on the first pics b/c i shouldve seen everything else|

i dont like this style of truss b/c u only have about 5 inches of weld holding it to the tubes on each side.....if you were to tie it into the diff cover bolts and/or run a brace to some of the housing webbing and bolting it in i would call it good......we started out building that style of truss and have left that idea moving onto a tnt customs similar truss design....my truss has approximately 40 inches of weld tieing it not only to the housing but to the tubes, coil buckets, and it bolts to 6 diff cover bolts

|flattietj||i posted a video on a thread about 2 weeks ago.....ill post it again if it makes you happy.....i dont know how it is trolling to explain how my suspension works but whatever makes you feel better than good for you|

|flattietj||all i can say is that i can lift each tire about 42"s off the ground before another lifts or slides and ther is no bind in the johnny joint which is what i am running in the rear....my limiting straps stop it before it binds.......but like goat i will be going to 4 link b/c i am getting scared of breaking the wishbone an dhaving zero upper links in the rear......we carry a welder but i dont wanna break it past the point of being able to fix on the trail in a decent amount of time|

Also i saw the johnny joint placed vertical, not horizontal like goat has it. Wouldn't it be nicer if its vertical since you are putting the load in that loop vs having it on the 2 washers that hold the JJ together?

|flattietj||i built a similar upper wishbone to goat and it does not do much for antisquat but it sure flexes nice|

OK, I'm not hijacking here... But I just have to say it.
The title of this thread sounds naughty!

Here is a picture of the complete rear suspension setup for a 99 to 04 Grand Cherokee.....
|01-11-2009 07:24 PM|
I'll take a pic of the one in the driveway if you would like to see it.
It was only used in the GRAND cherokee 99 to 04.
And let me tell you what..It's a pain in that arse to get it set up if you lift it. Only thing they have on the market is a spacer If you lift it over 3''.

Back on Topic. Hey Goat, how is that cradle set on the axle? I can't really see any welds or bolts.
|01-11-2009 02:04 AM|
i was just trying to search that image back and i cant find it. Its on their website but you cannot go back in the link.. Either way though np
How will a TJ with the proper length arms for 6-7" of lift handle with wishbone suspension?

weird. well thank you for the correction. I remember when i had my wishbone front end questions i searched for it and the Cherokee came up in the results.. i guess it must have been an aftermarket upgrade or something. Thanks for setting it straight. This is the image.

|1BLKJP||Trip, that is what's more comonly referred to as a wishbone style rear suspension. And as far as I know all of the ZJ's, WJ's, and WK's still use a rear trac bar.|

|ccain||You know... This thread title just sounds dirty!|
|12-30-2008 05:59 PM|
|flattietj||that last one is stronger than the tube style because you gain all of the surface area of weld on the tubes not to mention it ties into the coil buckets|
