Adrian (or anyone), I was curious if you knew of any companies making a replacement UCA w/ something better then the stock ball joint for a 4wd truck.

Would a camburg or any company's 2wd UCA fit a 4wd truck?

I thought that BTF was making an extended UCA for 4wd trucks. I think it was in another thread.

Edit: Found it

We have narrow trails for offroading so I didnt want to go way wide

It was a build thread on here. I think he is working with Brandon on something. This is the Link to his build thread. Page 5 in where he mentions the BTF UCAs. https://www.ranger-forums.com/projec...-134406/page5/

BTF builds ucas for the 4x4s that work with slightly lifted applications that have a uniball...i know morgan, 06xltranger, and yeatzee have them on theyre 2wd but brandon told me they also work with 4wd knuckles....im getting more of and lt kit for stability and some extra travel.

So just this UCA will work with the 4wd spindle, not all uniball 2wd ones?

Yea, I'm thinking just a stock with moog or timkin BJs. I wanna strengthen up the front end a little when we install the coils this spring.

I still have a few months to think things out.

Not sure if you can change the bjs in the stock arms? The btf is well worth it having a uniball

Me? No, I emailed them dec 28th and still haven't heard a response. From what I've read that seems to be common with them, unfortunatly. I hope I get a response as I'd like to purchase this crossmember.
