Default Bronco A-Arm suspension?

I was looking at Fiberwerx and saw that they have the new Raptor one piece front end for the 80 to 96 bronco. Just out of curiosity, has anyone tried to fab up an a-arm front end from a 4wd 97 up f150? Thought about doing this to my truck, itd be a lot of work, but it would be very unique, and eventually get upgraded to an H&M long travel kit. Thoughts anyone?

I don't know benefit you are looking for with A arms, but there are some very high quality, high performance TTB kits for the Bronco, which will give you pretty much the same performance for a fraction of the price of fabbing A arm, fixed differencial stuff.

No, because they know they can acheive the same if not better results from the TTB system for a long travel go fast vehicle.

Unique does not always equal practical or cost effective.
