bougth a totaled tj!

I ended up getting the total tj!
I took a better look at it in what i need are the control arms, (one is bent like a banana, and the other is marginal)
the perches for one side of the control arms is torn off) and a shock and a coil and a tie rod (from side to side)
other than i can get away with a grill and hood and be on the trail!!

Where can i get a perch for the control arm?

Re: bougth a totaled tj!

Have you thought about making templates from the other side and tranferring them over? You have to do welding anyway, this way would probably be the cheapest.

Or if you are going to lift it, just do away with all of the stock controll arms and go with a long arm kit(RE or Skyjacker).

Yea, I still got the D30. The control arms are still there but they will still need the bushings. Let me know what's up.

Re: bougth a totaled tj!

You can get the control arm brackets from Rubicon long as you are talking about the ones on the axle. The frame brackets... Im not sure if anyone sells them. They are something that could be easily made by any decent fab shop.

I have some stock parts leftover from when I installed my lift. Let me know if you need anything in particular.

Also has 'for sale and 'want to buy' forums that see a ton of traffic and are frequented by mostly TJ owners.
