Thumbs down Homebrew long arms (not mine) (another truck!)

Good tech is knowing both what to do, and what not to do.

I'll leave it to you PBB'ers to figure out which category this falls into.









I feel sorry for you folks in Virginia. Keep an eye out for this one.

Also note the custom-formed steering linkage.

what? gussetting is for sissies. Actually, I am making my own long arms pretty soon here (friend in town has a welder, in case you are reading my sig), and it's good to know that I can't do the worst long arm setup in the country

but in all seriousness, I'd be scared of those ones right there....

so what is the point of this abortion?

if you're building a new crossmember and links, then this "mock-up" does you no good whatsoever, except to post it on the interweb for the entertainment of others?

Poison spider doesn't sell XJ steering, they sell a TR & a gusset to go on your custom draglink...

Sorry, you "forgot" to add that when you posted the pics. Seems like every time you post something and people criticize it, it's suddenly "not done" or "not staying that way".

hey hey hey dont be giving kids still in school a bad name. im only 18 and i know that shit is bad... it aint all youngins that are stupid... just some of them

what those long arms look like is the brace link that is on ifs under the 99-06 chevy pickups... im going to have to crawl under my neighbors truck and find out for sure but they looks alot like that. rubber bushing and all. Also wouldnt they mounts for the long arm rip off eventually? seems kind of weak to me.

Oh, an Advanced Diploma. That's special. Must not have been in fabrication though...but I guess it's better than my mechanical engineering certification.

Just a thought though, for them being "not done", you sure like to talk about your skillz a lot.

OWNED

I thought my body work was a couple shades short of hack but this blows my shit away truthfully, I remember the original "build" thread you posted. Many good laughs
