Carli Replacement Radius Arm

Thought I would throw a teaser out there since many have expressed interest. Sage has been working on designing a replacement radius arm for the Ford guys who hate the look of the factory arm. It will re-utilize the factory bushings in the axle and will connect at the frame end with a HUGE Johnny joint for better articulation and less binding of the frame-side bushing. As you can see from the below drawing, there is built in tire clearance as well.

For everyone running our 2.5" and 4.5" systems, these arms will be built to work in the stock mounting location for the 2.5" and will work in conjunction with our drop brackets on the 4.5" systems to maintain proper arm orientation. These arms will be the strongest thing around given they have internal gussets/bracing throughout the arms. We're shooting the drawing to our laser cutter shortly and should have a prototype within a month.

You know PMF and OUO already make these right? PMF's are about $900 and OUO are about $1200.

I hope Carli stays in the $1000 range. Errr i mean the $20 range.

Explain? Unless your saying that PMF and OUO are adjustable 3-link radius arms, while this one looks to be a non adjustable radius arm.

there are several "others " who make replacement arms.....

GAURANTEED that they are no where near as good as these..... the amount of R&D these will go through is unbelieveable.....

OCVELO......is there a truck currently that has been testing these? if so how long ?

typically by the time some one from the carli camp releases this info, there is at least 1 truck if not 2 alraedy beating the hell out of these.....
