Tom, do you think JBA would sell just the axle mount itself?
I thought I'd mention something with the heim that some of you have asked about. Use graphite powder to lube them and they'll live a long quiet life. You never want to use any type of thick grease or anything that attracts dust.

I'm just not diggin' this thing for $600.
Depends on how you look at it
So far on Kili its had 6 new tri-links even at say 300 each that's 1800 bucks I've thrown away on them.
...just not ready to drop $300 more into my Jeep at this point.
I also don't doubt that it's a quality product. But $600 can go towards a lot of other more necessary repairs...
A stock replacement boomerang is ~$200 CDN (shipping & taxes in) to my door from rockauto. That JBA bolt-on replacement is $920 CDN (shipping & taxes in) and I still have to pick it up stateside (Sumas, WA). Probably an extra $50-100 to get it to my doorstep (more shipping + brokerage).
Is the one from Rockauto a MOPAR one or a aftermarket? Betting at 200 bucks its aftermarket and worthless to install. I tore through one of those in less than 3 months. So have to take that into consideration:shrug:
The rockauto one is the cheapest jobber one. $112 CDN plus the overhead to get it to me. Wouldn't bother me to replace it a few times. I'll buy or build an IRO style arm with a truss or bracket if I get fed up. A $900-1000 control arm is absolutely not in the picture.
Ya us Canadians are getting shafted these days with the exchange rate. I'm just glad I got my lift all squared away before it got as bad as it is now.
You will still need longer lower control arms for SFA. 5" lift is the max for the stock ones.good idea, that makes sense since I would truss the rear anyway. Using one of these in the rear, for SFA purposes....would that take care of the need for control arms?

Looking at getting the welded one on my 05 liberty maybe in a few months looks tough as hell. After reading this thread it sounds like it will work just as well as the bolt on one I presume. I know some complain about the price but it looks well made so far everything I have gotten at JBA is very good quality just my opinion.
