T-case arms and mounts

I am installing the Calmini gear kit. I would like to reinforce my own arms. I have the means to do so. Are there any good articles posted anywhere online that could guide me to do this? Or do any of you have some good tips/pics?

As for the poly mounts where do I get these from RRO Spidertrax? Who is the best or cheapest or whatever?

Re: T-case arms and mounts

Mike Shannon can help you. He welded some supports on mine in no time flat, and has done it to plenty of others! Get him to give you the exact recipe! I run the same gears and have had no problems... well, if you don't count that blown birfield joint despite the beefed ring bein' installed...But his supports haven't budged an inch!

Who is he, is he on the board or associated with one of our suppliers or what? How do I get in contact with him?

Re: T-case arms and mounts

Sorry, thought you knew him. Mike is one the 'Old-hands' of this board. Just post your question with his name on it and he'll respond. He's been buildin' 4x4's for a long time now, and he's a really good guy who's always willin' to help! He's helped me a lot with my zook and never for for more than a case of keystone light!

Re: T-case arms and mounts

YOu can also contact TIM PORTER of HARDCORE 4X4 and CUSTOM fab. I have a set of his BEEFED up t-case mounts on my truck an they are awesome. His sign on for here is XSPARTS. or do a search for his posts and contact him that way. As far as the poly's got mine from spidertrax. Dunno If they were the cheapest or not...but I love dealing with those guys! never had a problem with em EVER!

Re: T-case arms and mounts

What I do.....
LONG ARM:
I run two gussets on either side of the T-case mount bolts and take a piece of 1" square tube 1/8" or 3/16" thick. weld it into the area on top of the long arm(you will have to bend it or cut and weld it along the bend in the arm).
SHORT ARM:
The short arm is often over looked and not re-enforced enough for my taste. I box the sort arm with C channel, I think I use 1 1/4 or 1 1/2(can't remember) 1/8" thick. Run the C perpendicular to the length, AND parallel with the arm....Clear like mud right?!
basically make the inside a box everywhere but where the rubber mounts and T-case bolts go.

Re: T-case arms and mounts

I like the looks of the new Spidertrax arms. They should be available soon. No idea what the price will be.

Re: T-case arms and mounts

We have the poly mount kits in stock for $19.

If you do call us for them, ask for me and I can give you some details on beefing up your own arms.
