I am going to use this setup, however what you are looking at is a triangulated four link not a 3 link. It is a awesome setup.

You are right Don, but he is looking for something to actually connect his links to. The Avalanche should be good for that. www.rockkrawler.com also sells the ring that goes with thier 3 link, I think.

Bart,

Looking at the picture, the three-link mount seems to be welded to the axle tubes. It looks like the blue "ring" does not connect to the mount, but just has a plate to protect the heim joints.

I know a guy that has his AGR rockram attatched to the ring and so far it's held up...

I know that the above set up is a trangulated 4-link. I'm just wondering if that set up would be stable enough on a daily driver compared to a solid three link set up. From the last picture, it appears as if the rock ring provides additional support to the set up for the rear end. The Tera 60R has a nice flat base at the top which will allow for a three link type setup, I'm not sure if Dynatrac offers the same thing. Just thinkin' out loud.

I wouldnt attach my links to my diff cover for two reasons; 1. Strength, this would not be as stong as attaching them to an over the axle truss 2. Conviniance, what are you gonna do when you need to hange gear oil <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> I wouldnt want to have to put my frame and axles on jackstands just to change gear oil, which I do fairly often

The rock ring is not the main attatchment of the link. The links are attatch to the hoop the is welded to the axle housing. The rock ring connection is only there for a little added strentgh. When you change your gear oil all you have to do is pull the the bolt out of the top that attatches the the rock rink to the hoop and pull the diff cover bolts out. In no way is the rock ring there for the primary support.

Ok, I understand it now.

I guess I was wrong on my above statement - sorry. I guess it would be stupid to attach the control arms to the diff cover.

Do you use one of these rock rings or are you just quessing? You remove the diff cover bolts and the ring just swings up, you don't need to remove the top bolts. People look here for answers, not guesses.

`Hey guys, thanks for the interest in the rings. If you are changing your diff fluid, you leave the top bolts in. You will then back them off about a thread, then remove the lower bolts and swing up the cover. The ring is intended as a support for the crossover tube on the axle. The top links connect to the tube. Using the ring allows a simple and multi-use connection point, without having to weld to the cast of the housing. In addition to protecting the rear of your diff.
