Another from Artec to get their free shipping and 15% off holiday sale. So i went ham and ordered all the links and steering/drag link material to save on shipping.

Start of the 3-link. Used the Artec Combo brackets. Had to notch the factory crossmember for the lowers.

Shit pic but the truss to oil clearance is about 1/4". I may notch the truss some to get additional room.

Upper tacked in. I had to redo my passenger engine mount to get it to clear at full bump. Needed to be raised an inch and a half.

Tie-rod built. Using the Artec weld on crossover steering arms.

First panhard mockup. NOTE to others: Wait until you get the steering box position set before you waste time on the panhard.

Won me a set of the Nick Barna BJ Eliminators on a FB waffle page. Score.

Installed my flat pitman arm from Skys offroad and built the drag link. This is at ride height. Panhard in in the pic. Same angle.
