Posted by Brad Barnes on 12/29/2015 to Barnes Projects
Samuel added some custom off-road parts to get his Jeep TJ crawling. Take a look at his green machine dominating this rocky terrain:

Axle Swap, High Steer Setup, and a 4 Link

Samuel just finished swapping in a set of ford axles (44 and a 9"). To do so, he used Barnes suspension control arm brackets for the swap in the rear axle and to complete a 4 link suspension. He also added barnes 3/4 and 7/8 heim kits to build a high steer setup. Here is a closeup view of the joints and bracketry:

Works Awesome, Super Easy Build

According to Samuel, “The kits worked awesome and made it super easy to build a drag link, tie rod, and track bar with the provided threaded insert.” After performing some flex tests, Samuel “expects they will work awesome.” Overall, his upgrades are “definitely an improvement of clearance for the steering (over a stock tie rod) and drag link set up.”

We are pumped to hear that Samuel is ready to get his rig on the trail: “Because of Barnes 4wd’s great products and fast shipping, I should be able to go wheeling at rausch this weekend!”

Front links mount right in front of the factory skid plate on the frame, 2 lower links hang down off the bottom of the frame and the upper link is tucked up inside the frame. I wanna say that the lowers are around 36" but not 100% sure on the length but in that range.
