Yea Luke, Ryan can laser them nice and clean or if you're fine with 3/16" and a kerf on the edge I can cut them cheaper. You'll have to grind them a little tho for best fit

Niiice, I'm headed out that way after work if you're out I'll say hello. What tire size are you goin with?
If my black half ton Chevy is in the driveway I'm home. I'm sticking with my 35s for now. Eventually 37s after a regear and hopefully stretch

Well my truck is back on the road... Also decided that I'm going to 3 link the front axle of my Jeep since I don't feel like making the poly/busing mounts on the axle for factory arms. Thanks to @Ryanw10 for talking me into it. I really need to bust ass to get this thing done, Drummond is in 2.5 weeks

Started making arms today. Should be cutting out my coil buckets and trac bar mount on the plasma tonight then I'll be good to start mocking everything up. I already have my link brackets cut out and ready to go.



Arms and tie rod are both 1.75" .25" wall DOM with 7/8" heims. Should be a lot stronger than my previous 1 tomb steering set up



For my drag link, I'm going to have a heim on the knuckle end and a 1 ton TRE on the pit man arm since that's what I already have up there. My previous steering was 1.25" .25" wall DOM so I just cut a piece of my 1.75" DOM and used it like a sleeve that the tube adapter could slide into then slide onto the drag link.



Also thanks to @Wiseadam14's drunk urge to draw and Stephanie being bored, I have some new hood art on my Jeep


Anyone want a set of JK axles?
