What is it you want that you cannot find in the open market? I've seen a thread here where someone lengthened / modified his stock arms.

Can you give a reason as to why you want/need custom radius arms?

I know there are some aftermarket options out there, and a good majority of custom arms are on rigs with solid front axles.

I extended min with 36" 2" Dom tubing back to cross member.
I did not slide over existing but rather ran the entire tube up to 1/2" before housing, the
Stock arm I cut reliefs so 2" would slide in then it was reinforced with angle.
Moved the stock brackets back 15"

I got a set of used rancho extended arms for $75 and plated them for anouther $20. Never going to bend or brake them.

It's not custom if you bought it from a catalog!

i have a 6" lift and put the drop brackets in for the stock radius arms, yes in the future I plan on doing the SAS, but for now sticking with what i have. I am asking about the custom extended radius arms because I figure I can just build a pair for less instead of buying something for over $400, so just looking for ideas
