Post monster truck suspension

Anyone know of any sites that show typical "monster truck" suspension design? It looks like they use very long trailing arms, parallel to the frame. Possibly 4 link design. Not sure if we can learn anythign from their designs, but they sure seem to handle and jump well. That'd be a fun feature for my CJ.

hey nobucks thanks for the info. Now I have one more thing that will keep me up at night thinking how I can continue to spend money on my Jeep. Also gives me more excuses to whip out the torch and welder. I think I need a tubing bender now....hmmmmmm.
