    Hey everyone. JBA used to sell cut down CVs to allow for more articulation. Marlin sent me the instructions to do it my self but I dont have the necessary tools to cut the metal part. Does anyone have experience doing that themselves? Any tips on this would be helpful.

    Never did it and ran 4 " plus " inches for over 100,000 miles
    always used NAPA remanneds and no issues unless you jumped it over railroad tracks ( and that is a whole other story )

    okay thanks, did you get to test out the articulation in the front fully off road when you had the 4 in lift on it with those cvs?
