does anyone put any stock in this type of setup?

a friend of mine told me he would build me some revolvers if i wanted, but i don't know that i do.

what are the pros/cons?

theres a write up of them in the landcruiser section at www.off-road.com. you may need a long travel driveshaft,longer brake line and longer shocks to get full travel.

Someone else asked about these, search around or just look. Woody said no, go search and find out why. They apparently get unstable on steep downhills and some very steep uphills.

yeah, that was actually a recent topic...and yes, they rock if your terrain is boulder crawling but they suck on the steep stuff.

another cons is that if you have too much flex witht the revolver shackles, your drive shaft might pull apart and that is not good.
