I know everyone likes to post pictures flipping these off, but I'd rather leave it with; the four broncos I have owned with TTB served me well, I always asked more of them then they were designed for and sometimes they pulled it off....
sometimes though....

My arms are an attempt to use a hybrid of the extended superlift TTB style and the 05+ style of my own concoction. I like that there is only about +-1" of difference in the broncos frame width and these dana 60's.
It was a monster to wrestle in there but I got it.
brakes on temporary lines connected new wheels and trash tires on.
The extended bronco lines for the superlift 6" TTB lift aren't enough even bent out to be longer, and shocks are way to short!

I still have to get my reamer in for the steering (supposed to be here monday) and finish my track bar mount I am shoehorning in. Brake lines are coming in soon and most of my Frankenstein parts for the rear are on the way. I used a 1996 F350 brake booster and a 1997 master cylinder.

Those radius arms leave a lot to be desired in my opinion, especially the frame mount side.
They are the same as factory TTB mounts, this is my first foray into self fabbing suspension components. What specifically do you think is weak about them? I can get some pictures of them if need be. they attach exactly the same as superlifts arms that are the first picture in post #7.

The rad arms look nice, but I would box the tail end up a bit. Doesn't look like there is much holding the two tubes together at that end. And maybe streamline the front mounts up a bit; they look a little clunky.

I'll take my ttb over the Chevy/new style of ifs any day.

Keep up the fabbin'

I would say the entire thing, need a tube connecting the both tubes in the middle and some plating as well and what are you using for that bolt and how is it attached to the rest of it.

They look a bit short to me. Maybe just the pics.

I actually plan on putting a piece of plate between both tubes and plating it all in IF my math turns out to have been correct on the caster. On the bolt I used a 17mm hardened bolt. I drilled a 19mm hole in 3/8" plate and welded both sides.

Valhalla1, I live off 64 Hwy in Cleveland. If you need a hand just let me know. My love for the TTB is fading away and I am saving up for a set of axles. My TTB binds up pretty bad when I backup in reverse.
