Re: Rear Lower Control arm upgrades

Re: Rear Lower Control arm upgrades

"Good enough" is very circumstantial and personal. For dirt rods, sand, gravel, etc. sure. For rock crawling, not really. That's not to say people don't wheel with the stock ones, I did a few times and never had any issues before I upgraded them.

However the TTUE lower links are exactly the same as the standard lower links.

My Build: WHOOP '12

Special thanks to the following vendors:
-Ricochet Offroad
-Metal-Tech
-TRDparts4U
-URD
-Brave Motorsports
-FJNewb

They will bend with one solid hit. As mentioned previously it depends on the terrain you are hitting but if you play near rocks it's just a matter of time before the stock ca's are bent.

It's not worth doing if you can't drop some f-bombs along the way!

Metal Tech in Newberg, Oregon. I had All-Pro... absolutely great product. I believe that most are comparable (similar materials; overkill [consumer] construction), but MT is second to none when it comes to customer service. They also have a unique design that has been proven.
I hold no financial alliance to MT; just an immensely-satisfied customer.

Hats off to Wilson for customer service as well; uncompromising.

Re: Rear Lower Control arm upgrades

I have had All Pro...disappointed. MT are generally the same. If you are running a 3" lift or less, Wild West Off Road is the only way to go if you actually wheel your FJ. Literally the best lower links I have seen from any company. They don't advertise like some other companies, but in my opinion, the best in the business. A high clearance design that works! I've been beating on mine for 2 years, still perfect! Check them out!

mods, mods, MORE mods...blah blah blah. The list is too long...it was getting irritating

Re: Rear Lower Control arm upgrades

I'm going to chime in about the Rockmen that Wilson sold me a few months ago. They are solid billet aluminum and they won't bend.
When another member had the upper links for sale I finished off the whole set.
They are now branded by Toytech but are the same thing.
Look at Red Dirt Offroad's website for the rear links. You can get just the lowers or get the whole set.
I love em.
No I don't represent any parties here, I just like what I bought and put on my FJ.
