MOG axle highsteer arms

I was looking through the Baja Rocks photos and came across these. Anyone know whos rig this is, and how to get ahold of them? Does anyone have close up pics of those steering arms? I am basically looking for ideas on making high-steer arms for my axles, any good ideas, pics of arms, or distributors of prefabbed arms would help.
Thanks

Heres what I am talking about. I need some front and rear.

Edit: BTW, I'll trade you close up pics if you answer my PM that I sent you!

Very cool pictures of the steering. Not a bad idea!!!

By chance does he have a solenoid on the locker enabler thingy?? If so I would be interested in some more pictures of that.

The picture named "charliehighsteer" is the one that looks like it has something like a solenoid.

Anyways.

Later.

Well, judging by his levers for his lockers, I would say that he is using std cables:

I would say that the solenoid on the axle is a line lock used for cutting brakes. Allows for locking up of individual wheels to turn easier.

But I too would like to see if anyone has converted their locker to operate electrically with a solenoid. Any done this?

Yep, they just bolt on using 3 bolts that he tapped out to a larger size.

That's all the pics that I took of his rig.

If someone here is going to make up some for themselves, I might be interested in buying some myself - you know, defray some of the costs.

Lemme know - THANKS!

Charlie,

Thanks for the reply. Sweet rig by the way! I think I have a fairly good idea on the arms from those pics of your rig. I just am waiting to get my disc brake hub here and installed to see what I need to make and where they will go.

How do you like your air actuators? I have been thinking that I will do that instead of cables. Was it expensive to do? What do the mounts for the actuator attach to the diff. A pic or 2 would be great.

Thanks.The air actuator set up was'nt too expensive about 150 or so in parts.the actuator is just atached to a bracket welded to the diff.I can't get pics right now the rig is in florida and I am in utah.I am getting ready to do another one I will take pics when I do. It will probably be a couple weeks before I do it.

It may have something to do with the thread being 5 years old.

Did this thread really start in 2003? If so, I hope you have already got your high steer arms by now. The ones in the photos look like BTF's. Here's mine.

made my own since i didn't want to mount them on one surface and risk ripping the bolts out of holes and stripping them out (as many have done)

I sandwiched the knuckle and backing plate and put the high steer arm in double for the mounting.

Its also out of 3/8" plate.

The one below is just a mockup piece and the ones i used are not cut and welded back together.

The back plate is drilled and tapped due to space constraints and not being able to fit a nut on. will be modifying to also have nut on back side.
