Rausch Creek Munches My Under Body Parts

In a recent trip to Rausch Creek playing on Snake Bite I got chewed up pretty good.
Not only did a I reshape a lower control arm I also did a pretty good number on the lower control arm brackets - malled them prtty good

After spending some time underneath reshaping the brakets to free the control arms for replacing I was surprised at how soft the brackets appear to be.

Has any one replaced or added additional protection to reduce the damage inflicted from this kind of inexperience??

Its an 09 rubicon with 6 speed

Thanks

Send a message via Yahoo to thaduke2003

I added the Poly brackets- they're fairly stout. Another solid option is the RK mounts- you cut off the stockers and weld on entirely new, beefy-ass mounts. Either way works- if I could weld, I'd have totally gone for the RK, but I weld like a blind man, so yeah... Poly it is Mark W.

Back in a '94 YJ! Well, after I sink $$$$ into it...

That, and you might want to look at the lower control arm skids. This would help any future reshaping they might see!
