D.I.Y. Beefed x-fer arms

Anyone built there own beefed x-fer mounts. I'm psyched since I get to buy a grs1 and I know I will need some beefeir mounts withe grs1 and the 1.6L. I looked at rocky roads design it looks fairly simple. If yo just replace the long arm with some thick square tubing cut each end down so that you can bolt the x-fer up to it. Thoughts? Pictures?

i have seen some where you dont replace the arm.... just reinforce the existing arm..... i'm sure others can tell you more about this than i can

I think the main advantage with with the buckets and commercial (spidertrax, TT, RR, AAPA, etc) is they have the extra bolts that go around the output for the rear drive shaft..

Re: D.I.Y. Beefed x-fer arms

I will hopefully be beefing mine this weekend....if so I'll post and fill you in with info/photos. Planning to weld some square tube into the long arm and some sort (still working this one out) of angle bracing into the short.

you can use angle iron welded to the long arm, then bend a 1/2" solid rod around the profile of the short arm and weld it on.

Re: D.I.Y. Beefed x-fer arms

I have had good luck reinforcing the long arm by running a peice of 1" angle iron along the top, and adding a peice of 3/16x1" flat stock along the bottom. you don't need to weld all the way along, just stitch weld every couple of inches. you might also want to consider doing something with the rubber mounts.
