Crossover Parts & Questions

First ere's a few pics of the crossover parts I picked up the other day:

OTT ARM - This thing sure is beefy - Cost me ~150CAD


Machined Knuckle - 150CAD for pair of knuckles, 60CAD for machining.


Machining pattern - for those so inclined


Look at the BEEF. That knuckle will shatter before the arm is barely stressed:




Now for the questions: What pitman arms have you guys been running on your crossovers, how much lift do you have, and what crossmember interference problems did you have and what was your remedy.

Please post pics of your setup for me, thanks.

Re: Crossover Parts & Questions

I'm pretty sure I have a ford drop arm on mine

I'm running 6" Tuff Countries on the D60 in the front

I have a bent draglink

I bought all this used from Brent (forgothislastname)

Anyway, it all went in smooth and is very nice

I belive it's a combo of ORD, Sky, and Rockstomper parts



Yo, good to be back with ya Beaterchev, I always liked your style!

Did I miss a post of yours where you had a pic of what you have put together

Thanks rezzy, any chance you could snap a pic of the ford drop arm installed?

Truck looks even bigger than before. You put more lift into it?

Re: Crossover Parts & Questions

Yeah I can get a picture tomorrow, it's very cold tonight

Yeah it's 2" taller, a total of 9" now. I was concerned it would be too tall, but with the 131" WB and 2" backspacing wheels with 39.5" IROKS, I think it will be long and wide enough. Plus theres no bed anymore.

Anyway catch ya later, I plan to frequent this BBS now

Cool Rezzy, thanks for the link..

Looks like that arm might work for me.. Wish i had a better source for ford parts...


If anyone else has pics of the x-over and components, post em up, bring some tech back to ORC.
