Nothing wrong with the arms if its 7071 1 3/4" solid! Especially with a 2800 lb. rig.;)

1.75" Solid Round = 1.75 lbs per foot
1.5" Solid Round = 1.5 lbs per foot

Mild Steel

1.75" x .25" = 4 lbs per foot
1.5" x .25" = 3.34 lbs per foot

Assuming you use 1.75" x .25" which is 4 lbs per foot (heaviest from the list above), and your arms are 48" long (16 lbs each), and you have 8 of them, that's 128 lbs, is that really too heavy? Also take into consideration that you can easily weld the mild steel out on the trail, I just don't see how it is worth it. Maybe it would be for the hard core competition only rig.

So have you made any changes to the Cruiser ?
Yeah, I got rid of the jeep springs in the back. Changing the steering pump to a Howe with filter/reservoir:D and new beads from Frankie for those Krawlers that should be here any day now!

They are 24" daytons, and the color was my sponsors decision. Victoria's Secrets, they are tough to deal with, so I finally succumbed to there wishes.
