A set of link towers like BTF's stuff without BTF's price? The new thing is running Rocks and having the top of your cage 6' tall. The old way of mounting Rocks with the uppers on top of the chunk makes that impossible. So....uppers right next to the chunk on towers and the lowers on "normal" link tabs outboarded on the axle.

Maybe a nice HEAVY DUTY "weld on" tube/bracket system that allows you to mount your double ended steering ram to go to TOP of the stock knuckles.

I vote for both of these!!!

Sooner or later I'll have another fat rockwelled rig when I get tired of this mini wheeler crap.

After hour's on pirate and other's and own a rockwell rig. A weld on double-end ram mount that you can weld right onto the front over the axle tubs front and rear. But they need to be abell to take like 3 differant ram types. Surplus rams, psc'c and howen.

Im brain storm on other stuff. Thats not to custom.

Most are but I think it's because they don't want to spend the time fabbing up a mount for the double ended rams (That and most rednecks don't realize you can buy a surplus double ended ram so cheap these days). I run the ag rams on the PIG and they bring the suck compared to a rig running double ended rams.

My next build will have double ended rams on both ends.

Just my .02

Id say it 50/50. And more going to de-rams. But mounting them is get most of them. I started with a single end ram. But i would have done a de-ram setup if i could have found the rams for cheap like they are now.

Hell im redoing all of mine so i can run highsteer arms and probly looking at one of OTC/PSC third member mounts to move my ram off the front of the axle tubs and get it up high..
For the money to time. I can buy it bolt it on and save time and fab work. And wheel more. Compared to saving a few bucks.

I second the brackets. Im guessing start with 3/4 holes but have room to go to 1" holes. But the bottom hole on the axle center line and the top one below the top of the diff. it shoud be enough sepration in the links.

From the look of PSC's site you guys need some decent priced HS arms as well!

Bingo!!!! On my brother in laws buggy we used a set of PSC HS arms and had to chop them all up to clearance them from the tires. He has his hubs flipped in and the tires came with in a half inch of the arms in stock form. If you do make them see if you can bring them in towards the center of the rig just a little. (not sure if that make's since or not)

How thick were they? 1 1/4"? Did they have the taper machined in them so when you turn tight it doesn't jack the heim?

I'll measure them this weekend but I think they were 1 1/4" and they had two 3/4" holes non tapered on the end of the arms.

I assumed the 3/4 holes were non tapered but where the holes are was it machined w/ a taper like these D-60 arms that we sell are?

There are no tapered holes anywhere on the arms from PSC they we got. guess I should have just said that the first time.

Not the holes, are the arms milled w/ a taper? Look at the pic of the D-60 arms on the ends w/ the single holes. See how it is milled w/ a taper? From the pic on PSC's site you cannot see if the bottom of the arm is milled in this fashion.

Im running stock knuckle steering on mine with the heim on top of the hole. I dont like HS arms as they put too much stress on everything. Never ran them on anything I have ever had. I would buy a set of the link towers in a heartbeat.

I already have a set of arms. $80 bucks to my door pirate find.
And if someone could build them for cheaper they would sell. I can have them cut out for half there price. They are 1" thick and thats way thick enough.
I think mine are OTC's, thing is mine are only half the arm. So i have to fab the back half of the arm to tie it into a stock arm. You have to brace rockwell highsteer arms into sometime. The kingpin patteren is way to small to hold all the pressure big tires and full hydro put on them. There smaller then d60 patteren.
Thats why most guys dont run them. They can be a weak link on steering if there not braced or tied into another part of the knuckle. Like stock tierod hole or the spindle bolts. Or weld to the knuckles.

OTC/Old Town Customs have some neet bracing brackets for there arms.

As far as the the taper no need just a 3/4 hole Mine have two holes on each arm. Most guys run heims not tie rod ends.
