right on just trying to get all of the math exactly right, i think somone should do a write up on building a 4 link for 5 in of lift on 35's something that alot of people are running.......therefor you could just have a step by step and all the cut lengths and mounting locations for everything.....links, the bridge, mounting points on the frame everything

Ummmm - I'm getting a bit concerned now.

You HAVE seen the Pirate 4 link calculator, right?

You're not just guessing and saying "that looks good" are you? Seriously - a 1/4" matters. Being off by 1" can really be the difference between an evil handling truck and a great handling one!

I'll find and bump my old build thread with all the links in it for you to read up on...

I asked TrailGear what their setup was like, and they emailed me a picture of the calculator screen. I've since deleted it, but you could try that ... their crossmember in the front is really high though - you have to lose the bed to make their setup work.
