Got a pretty kinky bend in the passenger rear lower control arm while cruising around Kelly flats this afternoon.

I've got a trip planned for this weekend. Planning to get some 2"x1/4" DOM tube to cut and sleeve both arms tomorrow.

Cut off the old joints from the bent control arm. They fit into a 1.5" ID tube pretty well. So I got some 2x1.5x0.25wall DOM and just ended up replacing the tube. This should be strong enough for anything I'm gonna do to them. I hope.

While attempting to break the send barrier today the semi float rear axle decided it had enough. Gonna try to source a fzj80 full float to swap in this week.

Maybe tons in the future...
