Are you running a stock pitman arm or a drop one? I need to replace mine and do not know what to use.
I have a 2in drop xj arm from Rubicon express.But it limits my Steering angle with the full width axle. IT will be coming off this weekend for a 99 to 04 WJ arm. Longer center to center so I can get the most angle possible.some say it's a direct swap some say you have to file out the a few keyways. I want to put a J20 drop arm on it. But the only company selling them is out of stock.

I know on the SD60 swapped xj's the arm to get is the FSJ arms. Any of the wagoneer or J truck arms are the way to go.

I’m sure you’ve looked into it, but for all new/higher end builds the Dana “ultimate 60” Cs are cheap, and 1000x less labor than cutting up junkyard axles. Just a thought.

I have and I will definitely use them at some point.Was looking at using everything from the 60 I could. If I could sell a Gearworks 10HP center with 35 spline axle for 4500 to 5k I think they would sell.Plus with the new 40 spline 1550 being cheaper to get now the upgrades are endless. Gearworks does sells a 2in 45 spline spool now days.
