Thank you for the info, sir. Yes, dirt-fab is the guy that gave me my quote over on pirate. The above kit is a barnes kit. I can actually get him to leave the truss out of the deal. I have a pinion guard for my 14, so whatever I get I might try and tie it into it.


In theory, couldn't you take a 7" grinder and get someone to slowly turn the pinion as you grind the ring gear? All this while still in the carrier? Of course you would need to clean it very well afterwards.....

Actually, that's how you do it. All you have to do is start turning it. The grinder will keep it going. There are several threads on it. Rkik, mikegyver, and mine have pics of it. You could use a 4.5 if your arms are up to it. Just take periodic breaks to check how much you've taken off but that's how most do it. Every machine shop I went to said they "couldn't" or just didn't understand how. With shipping it's almost $100, and in Rkik's case where he had to redo it, you're better off doing it yourself.

Go on pbb and look up Ramon's build. "Trying to keep it simple one ton tj". He walks through the ballistic shave(which he bought from me). It's really easy the way he does it. Use some motor oil in an old bowl, set angle, dip, paint or draw line, sawzall away. Ross(texasag02) has done one or two on COR with good how to instructions. For the extra $100ish over a diff cover, why not?

I would run double since you have room. I have double in the rear of the ftoy. I'm actually ordering my 4 link for the front today but I'm just ordering the upper triangulated instead of double triangulated.

Thanks. I guess I'll need to pull a tape and see how much DS clearance I will have.....Do the upper and lower links need to be spread the same distance?

I think my frame side is 8" separation and the axle side is 12" separation and it seems to cycle just fine.

I think that I'll be going with the artec truss over the high clearance cover for now. I just have so much invested in the rear, while I don't have anything for the front. One of the main goals of this build is to do it without going into debt. No credit card purchases. All cash.......
Artec over on pirate is a pain in the arse to get a hold of. I'd like to order the truss, but he always takes forever to reply. I hope this doesn't reflect the rest of his business.

What are you waiting on from them?

I just went on the wedsite. Choose the 4 link kit and truss. Type in pirate4x4 for the discount code and got nearly 100 dollars off of it.

I'm wanting to know what the lead time is on it before I buy. I've read where some people have waited a while for their products to come in. It's more or less insurance, so if I do have trouble I can go back to the pm......
Thanks, for the help....

From personal experience there isn't. And Nate is awesome to deal with. I have always recieved everything within a couple days. Ruffstuff and sniperfab are always a week and half to two weeks on things in stock.

I didn't get some brackets I bought with my truss. He didn't even ask a question, just shipped them overnight. They were the wrong degree. He overnighted the correct set and told me keep the others. Even with the two mistakes it was less than 5 days to get it all. Probably the best service in the business.

I only have one complaint about them. They only sell one size bracket. They don't stock multiple axle tube size brackets. They are pretty cheap, and well made. But it sucks having to grind on a brand new bracket to make it fit.

Yea, maybe I'm being over cautious. It just seems like I can only get maybe one pm out of him per day. If that......

Just give ol Nate a call.

I can tell you Scott at Dirtfab will do you right. I wanted a flat shock mount once he didn't have. He was busy and messaged me at midnight to say he was making a pair for me.

Well, I've about convinced myself to go with the artec kit and truss. The money difference isnt a whole lot, but it looks like the quality is there.
The lowers are 2", but the uppers are 1.5". You can upgrade to 2" but is it needed?

Yea, he was right on top of things when I ordered the shocks. Of course the next morning some as*hole popped up with a used set for almost half the price. They were like new, but oh well.....

2" lowers and 1.5" uppers should work fine.

I just went and did some more measuring, and it's not looking good. A double triangulated system might be out of the question. With the wheelbase I'm shooting for, my lower links would have to be around 5' to get the mount close enough to the t-case to clear the driveshaft at full droop. So I might only be able to do a triangulated upper......and a parallel lower.........

Haha! Uppers don't see near the stress as the lowers. That said if you have the cash and want some nice links give these guys a shout. I bent my square lowers on my fj40 and plan on replacing them with his 2" links.
