Squeak Coming From Rear Axle Area?

Maybe the rear lower control arm isn't supposed to touch the bracket???

Before.



After.



So what is everyone using for rear LCAB skids? I e-mailed Artec last night to see if they have any plans of making a weld on skid like the TF system. I have looked at the Poly and Evo setups too. Anyone here make their own?

It was a huge pain to straighten that and want to avoid doing it again.

Tucson is closer to Artec than you so get in line for the R&D stuff.

You already have the competition's stuff on yo' whip homie!

It takes a lot more balls to try obstacles when the obstacles are taller than your tires! Anyone can be a badass offroader on 37's, beadlocked.

I was a badass before I had 37's and beadlocks. Look above my avatar and read what it says.

i have the off road evolution weld on skids. LOVE them




i dont have a better picture of the leading side of it (where yours is bent). but seriously one of the best mods i have...and i think thats saying a lot. the front weld on control arm skids from ORe is also a life saver

The TF design is very similar to those. I was hoping Artec would up the ante' and design something that reinforces the sides a little. Even boxing them together is better than nothing but i'd like to see some vertical support if it's possible.

Thanks for posting your pictures. Was wondering how they looked installed and after a few hits.

Just make your own. This is also on my to do list once I determine where exactly I want my lower shock mounts to be.

Oh, you sumbish! I'll burn 'em in when Artec sells me the rears.

I thought about making some right then and there when I was straightening the bracket, but that would have been a six hour snowball effect. I was not in the mood to spend any more time on the Jeep yesterday.
