sitting that long, you can almost guarantee there are flat spots, although you usually feel those at low speed, like even 5mph you should feel them...

I ment like cut that fugly crossmember out and replace it with an atractive tube one or somthing. You should extend those arms too and you'll pull some more flex out of them.

The point of a wristed arm is so you get the benefit of long arms without the clearance loss. This is how i will stay for now.

little off topic, but has anyone ever had their warn hubs, get turned to unlock, by rubbing up against something or being in mud or something like that, while 4x4ing?

Ive never seen it. The ones on my old Chevy, you had to push them in a bit then turn them. But it takes a bit to turn them as it is.

Trimmed the front a lot today. Folded it back nice and everything but I'm just not a fan of no flares on this gen. I'm gonna paint it tomorrow as the paint chipped while bending it and I sanded it. Any tips on flares that could work and not look ridic? I wont use garden fence or bushwackers. Rear I just took a little off the back corner because its setup for 90% droop rather than uptravel.

Made this temporary shock setup to get me through winter. Limits flex but will be all redone when I get my fox shocks in the spring. Came out nice though for a temporary fix. Theyre suburban shocks and ride STIFF

Heres the tranny x member I built. All 1/4" or 1/4" wall. Ties both radius arm brackets together as well to keep them stiff and prevent the frame from bending. Not the prettiest but it works and is way better than the flimsy stock one.

Looks like a good solid setup... I can't wait to score a find on some 76-77 Bronco axles(both D44 and 9") and then start the axle rebuilt and swap inot my truck!

No brake line. It comes down to that braided line, then the braided line has a T fitting so it splits off L and R then there is a section of hard line, then soft lines at each side so it can turn back and forth. Not the conventional front setup.

Shocks max before trac bar hits x member

Your ABS is on the wheels dude, not the speed sensor. On earlier models there is a speed sensor in the tail housing of either the Trans (2WD) or t-case (4WD), Later models use the tone ring in the rear axle housing to send a signal to the speedometer.

i was under the belief that the ABS sensors doubled as speed sensors, as if you do the abs disconnect switch mod, you also disable your spedo...

Na gotta remember this is a 96. Actually took the whole ABS box out and just plumbed the lines straight off the master cyl to front and rear. Speedo not effected.
