radius arm vs 3 link.....

I'm starting to plan my suspension build for this winter. My question is what is the difference between a 3 link and radius arm set up? I understand the basics, but what is the advantages and disadvantages of each set up. Pictures would be great!

radius arms are mounted hard to the axle(not allot of flex and they tend to rip brackets off of the axles when you beat them up)
3link, you can make them a thousand different way so making it work with your rig is no prob(just stare at it for a couple days and get it right the first time)

go with the 3link and a pan-hard bar.
whats left of an 82 wagoneer.
