Pre-runner dudes..

Aftermarket upper control arms.. what are they using to fab these up? Boxed Cr-mo or mild steel? Looking for some specific material as I plan on fabbing a set of uppers real soon.

Blitzkrieg used CNC'd Billet Aluminum on the Upper, but the used boxed 4130 on their 98-up Ranger Kit .

Camburg, like the one Trent is getting, I'm assuming chromo 1.5" .120 wall.... I'm sure he could tell you more than I could.

Alon is selling a set of arms for a pretty good price you should hit him up first.

Most all competent companies/fabricators use 4130. Either tube or plate. The standard is .120 wall tube. Typicly 3/16 ~ 1/4" plate.
