If I may Pat, those were fabbed by Pat with stock radius arms that were supplied by Roadhouse. He bought the correct size tubing and with parts from rubicon he made them. He'll have to get you a cost but they turned out very nice and should be sold like that in that style. Also I thought Mike was supposed to get him some 7 degree bushings for it because the 4.5's were not going to work. I'm sure Pat will reply when he gats back from snofari.

Tab is correct, Mike bought some 7 degree bushings and we will be installing them on monday. Will post pics when they are in. Then I will get with Tab and have him plasma cam the tabs that go to the new undercarriage/cross member unit and then build the new track bar and high steer setup. As far as price to build you a set, I will have to go back to Mike's invoice and see what I have into his and let you know.

And some day soon Roadhouse can go wheeling again :scared:

I&#39;m waiting for somebody else to be your Scrambler development buck. I&#39;m a ways off from being ready for the cage.... I have a bunch of work to do before I get the bare frame and bare tub off the jackstands. :monkeydance:

Ironman is both a great guy, and does extraordinary work. Speaking of which, Pat, it&#39;s gonna be a little bit until I can get that Jeep to you. (Read my post in Off Topic; "The Ride Home Blues" and you&#39;ll see B) ) No worries though, what we talked about at West Branch will happen though. More importantly, I hope everything is ok with the family.

We tried the stock bushings to start with which have are 2* or 3*, which would of worked with a major bend in the arm. Pat and I both agreed the arms look better straight with no bend. So I some 7* units from Jeffs Bronco Graveyard, we&#39;ll have to see how those work.
The tubing on those arms is 1.5" with a .250 wall.
