I was going to ream my cj pitman arm for GM tierod ends, but the stock arm doesnt seem to be wide enough. There would only be about a 1/4 inch of material left on each side after that,is this strong enough or does someone make a beefier arm.

Just get a waggy Pitman Arm, I believe it is already reamed for 2027R TRE and is pretty beefy, and cheap at the junk yards.

Is it the same length as the cj arm? I moved my axle forward 3 inches and did crossover high steer on it. I then had to move the box forward 5 inches so now trying to keep the arm about the same length for clearance issues.

??

so will the waggy arm fit a stock YJ box and a 2027R TRE without any machining??? I've got a dropped YJ arm on it now, reamed for a 2027R, set up w/ high steer crossover on a HP44, and my TRE, on the pitman arm end of the drag link, is hitting the tie rod, hard. I was going to get a stock YJ arm, or a waggy arm, reamed for the 2027R, but if a waggy will bolt right up....:rolleyes:

Anybody know for sure???

thanks

A waggy arm in stock form will not accept a 2026 or 2027- the tre taper is too large.

Yep, and the arm is a little longer than a CJ and has a ~13/16" drop built in.

another tidbit: BDS waggy drop pitman is 6.5" long with 2" of drop. This makes it a little shorter than stock waggy, but longer than stock tj/yj. $50-60

Can you get pre-tapered for the bigger TREs? That would be cool.

Recently went to full high steer on my TJ D44 front axle. Pulled a Waggy stock PA out of a salvage yard and had to ream it to accept the Chevy 1 ton TRE's. I believe the ream was 1.5" per foot. Wouldn't fit unless I reamed it.
