You guys are into the Dodge Ram diesel 4x4's! so why not be building a truss for under the dodge front axle like your other axle trusses.

Reason i ask is no one offers a PLAIN NO HOLES corner guard for the jeep jk at all. By plain i mean no cut for the fenders, tail lights or hinges, leave that up to the customer.
What is on the market is 90% steel, covers more of the side than what is needed and because of all the holes/other crap is overpriced. Only one place offers aluminum (needed as its a fat bitch) but you are stuck with thier cutouts.
i am looking for aluminum in 1/4ish so i can cut my own taillight holes and delete the side swing hinge

BUMP on this one !

i like this idea as well. you are more than welcome to send me any parts you need tested as well with a D60 swapping that in shortly

a frame boxing kit would be nice too. maybe with an extra xmember or 2 for it.

I even have an empty short tail case that has a small crack in it that I can ship out there for r&d.

Bringing this back to the top, any chance of this being done?

how about an adjustable sway bar that you can soften or stiffen the amount of twist the bar will do. using volkswagen front springs, you can add or remove each flat spring to get the amount of twist.

Stiffer Bushing Material

I was wondering if you guys could make some type of stiffer bushing material? I'm using a 2.63 bushing, thats been narrowed to 2.125 because of clearance issues, on my panhard. I don't think thats the problem though the bushings just seem to soft

It seems to be causing bump steer. When i rock the steering wheel back and forth i can see the panhard moving as the bushing compresses in each direction.

Thanks, Pat

I know a lot of people still would like to be able to get header flanges for making headers. Were you able to ever do anything with this?

How about a version (or versions) of these http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/...mp_p_1474.html where it can fit a 2" tube and/or where all 6 of the holes are threaded on one half and none of the 6 on the other thereby having a male and female side. That would make it easier to keep the all the bolt heads protected from harm and/or making it easier to get to all the bolts when up against another part.

A size large enough for 2" tube would be quite expensive and our OD tube clamps do have a male and female half, and they always have to the best of my knowledge.

How did this get moved into this thread? Better yet is that common with the ballistic poly bushings?

I'm not sure how my original post got moved into this thread, I've yet to hear anything from ballistic though

The bushing in the video was narrowed to 2.125" mounting width to fit between my tie rod and axle at full stuff

The looseness could possibly be explained by the reduced surface area of the rubber and outer sleeve

I had a buddy machine a derlin bushing to use on the panhard instead, that seems to be working

I am using unmodified bushings on the frame end of my lowers and they seem alright, though i think even an unmodified bushing on the panhard would still be too soft
