Thanks for posting all of the pics. They have been a ton of help over the past couple months.

No problem. Build threads are a great help when finding simple solutions. Sucks everything has went to bookface.

A new front shaft and mine will be ready to wheel. School bus style......

Bump for some front link pics. I need some inspiration since the red truck is torn apart at the moment.

The main reason I had to ditch the leafs is the pinion angle they were causing at full droop. I couldn't keep a front driveshaft in it.

One of the biggest issues I had is the amount of room on the inner frame for the upper link. The was mostly due to the V8. I ended up running the upper on the outside of the frame. Even doing this, I couldn't make the links real long due to the body mounts and sliders.
All in all, it works great and performs 10 times better than the leafs. You will not be disappointed.


I ended have to rotate the axle side track bar mount 90 degrees since it was maxing out the heim at fill droop.

Thanks for the pics and videos. I am on the wall about an engine swap down the road. If anything it will be a 3.4 Yota motor since I will already have the trans and TC in place. If I find a deal on an LS platform motor in the mean time, I will try to emulate yours. Alex's was the same with the upper link on the outside of the frame. I'm just getting parts together before hand while I have some cash. What length air shocks di you use on the front?

14" x 2.5" Radflos. You could probably do 2.0's

Do you have some more pics of the driver side upper and frame link mounts? Im leaning heavily towards this route.

I can get some. I had to hack up the body mount bracket pretty bad for clearance. My slider mounts also got in the way. I also had cut a hole in my floor to weld the top of the bracket. If you have a body lift, you may not have to.

I figured you had to cut a hole to get to the top. I don't have a body lift so I will be doing the same. Did you use Ruffstuff link brackets for your lower and upper mounts?

I used Barnes4wd brackets for everything. I'm very pleased. I also used them front and rear on the TJ I'm re-working for Joopman.

Thanks Clint. I ordered the adjustable upper frame bracket and the lower link mounts from Barnes4wd.

Did you plate the frame at the upper frame link bracket location?

I just realized I failed to get you the pictures.

Since the frame angles in at that part, I had the cut a pie out of a piece of rectangular tubing to weld to the frame first. This essentially made the upper link perpendicular to the axle and not angles inwards with the frame. My upper link is within an inch in length of the lower link, so I tied the frame upper/lower bracket together. No need to plate it any further in my opinion.

Nice. I will have to look into that when I start mocking up the front.
