Rusty's LJ UNLIMITED Long Arm Upgrade (LWB ONLY)
Please note that this kit fits the LJ Unlimited ONLY. It does not fit the standard (short wheelbase) TJ Wrangler.
Rusty's Long Arm Upgrade kit is designed for individuals who already have the amount of lift they need and simply want to upgrade their control arms to a long-arm system. Works with all brands of suspension kits. The High Clearance Long Arms require at least 5 inches of lift but the standard arms will work from 3 inches or larger lifts.
It simply doesn't get any better than Rusty's long travel suspension kit! It takes you places other vehicles can't go; over logs, big boulders, or just about anything else on the trail. We have applied race technology and years of research and development to deliver a suspension system with enough articulation to keep your rig firmly planted even over the most radical terrain. This system is the answer for those who demand nothing less than bulletproof off-road performance!
The system starts with new radius-style control arms that are completely adjustable, both the long lower arm as well as the upper link. The arms utilize Clevite factory rubber control arm bushings at one end to ensure that no noise or vibrations are transmitted through the frame and at the other end Rusty's rebuildable Flex Joints for superior flex and articulation. The arms are constructed of 2" diameter D.O.M. tubing, so go ahead and bash them against rocks and ledges because they can take the abuse and keep right on going!
The front radius-style control arms and the rear control arms bolt to completely new 1/4" thick steel brackets that have been laser-cut and CNC formed for a precision fit. These brackets sandwich the frame and are secured with additional hardware positioned through the frame for additional strength. To top things off and provide protection as well as additional ground clearance, the weak stamped steel factory crossmember is replaced with Rusty's 1/4" inch thick steel "skinny up" belly pan. The belly pan provides total protection for the transfer case while tying the long arm suspension mounting points together as one solid assembly. The complete kit comes in a durable black powder coated finish.
Rusty's Long Arm Upgrade kit is designed for those individuals who already have the amount of lift they want but would like to upgrade from the factory short arm design to a long-arm system, which provides substantial improvements in suspension articulation. Rusty's kit works with most reputable lift system brands. Exhaust modifications may be required if using a stock style muffle.
