What a cool setup for lifts 2-2.5" Arms are preset to give a little caster bump. move the axle back 3/16 and pinion + 1/8 for the driveline.

Here's the arm lengths I researched a month ago

Front upper 18 3/4 = stock
Front lower 22 13/16 = + 3/16
Rear upper 17 11/16 = + 1/4
Rear lower 19 15/16 = + 3/16

Front lowers can be run alone for a 1° or so caster bump Rear uppers can be run alone for a small pinion angle change on 2 doors.

Great install video too ... Awesome job TF

Where are you guys seeing these? I looked on TF's site. Did I just miss them?

I'm very interested to see what the full kit is going for. Will they list without shocks like they do their other kits? That's one of the things I really like about TF, they let us buy what we want and not force a specific set of components on us.

I think this is only sold as a upgrade kit. I like the fact you can buy them separately too.

I guess you can add it to any of the 2.5 - 3" kits, but I think it would be a great gap filler between a regular 3" kit and a 3" full flex arm kit which is nearly 3 times the price.

These lengths match the arms that come with the mapar 3" lift. In fact they are within 1/16" of what I measured. Although the Mopar kit does not come with front uppers. The Mopar arms appear to be much stronger and are heavier than the stock arms. I measured 1-5/8" O.D. on all arms. I'm curious to know of the TF arms are the same.... Did you happen to measure the diameter of the tubing? Also, do the TF arms come with Tenneco bushings?

Good work ken!

Stock Clevite on the bushings. Assuming the arms are stronger. The front uppers are stock in length. They're would be no point in replacing them if the same strength/diameter.

JadMT should be able to grab a measurement.
