Uca

I am trying to decide on an aftermarket uca, I was sold on Total Chaos but in my search I see threads commenting on how load their trucks are, I don't want more noise, I have enough rattles. I have been told to stay with ball and joint uca's what are my options? I have an ome lift now.

Read my F'n blog dammit, I worked hard on it.

VooDoo Blue AT, OME 886/895, Ex One Sliders and BullBar bumper, Superwinch EPi9.0, Budbuilt Skids, KM2's, LR UCA's, PIAA 510's, rust, dust and bird sh|t

Re: Uca

I just put the Light Racing UCA's on my OME lift and it's perfect, aligned easily and tracks the road like it was stock. Got 'em for cheap at Fat Bob's Garage, I'm pretty sure they have the best price on the internet.

$375 and free shipping was the sale price that just ended. However, give us a call 800-839-0684 and we will give you the deal.

True dat... I'm just now starting to learn and embrace that. Too many times I've either just missed the thread on a sale or bought something a week before it does go on sale.
Either way, vendors like MT (and others on here) go above and beyond in taking care of us FJ folk.
