    arms look great. it's cool to see a different approach (boxed) to what what's already out there for UCAs

    Thank you guys for the feedback! They are greasable, and we're running 1" uniballs. As far as the caster question, I posted this from home, & I'm not sure what the final number ended up being:eek:. I will talk to the fabricator tomorrow and find out. No other pics yet, as the few sets that are done are off at the powder coat shop.

    For now we are only offering these for 2nd Gen Tacomas/FJs, but depending on how they move, we may look at having other models built.

    Also....if you really don't have Facebook, just send us a PM here on TW, and we'll enter your name;).

    Good night.

    Yeah Schiz, until your truck sees dirt, you shouldn't need that kind of articulation ever... But a lifted offroad regular cab would be beast! I have considered buying one for strictly this purpose... Like an 05 or something to make my trail/hunting rig.

    I am here in SW Montana, I have mainly just mud too. Thinking of going white reg cab with possibly long travel. It would just be a badass fourwheeler with a cab!

    icons are billit alluminum (meaning they're machined from one piece of metal). they are not hollow like the standard tube UCAs or these new DSM arms. and there are no welds on them.

    Hello everyone. The response on these arms had been overwhelming. More than we had anticipated!

    You're correct about the ICON arms, being machined from a solid piece. They are very nice arms, and we're not making any claims that these are the same as ICONs. We went with chromoly plate steel, because we liked the look of a boxed arm vs. the tubular style. We wanted to make a good looking chromoly arm, with high end components, that would address some of the handling issues, and compliment a set of coil-overs at a fair price.

    The teflon lined uniballs are the top of the line bearings offered by FK Bearings. It's a part#WSSX16T and are rated for a 104,000lbs RADIAL load & 19,300 AXIAL load.

    Thanks!

    Also....we're not asking for anyone to beg for these. That was not the point of asking for info about your truck. We would just like to know a bit about your truck. We're sure you're all proud of your Tacomas, and why not share that with everyone!

    Thanks to those of you who have entered the drawing via PMs too! Keep them coming and good luck.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Good afternoon TW!

    Here are a couple of shots for you guys/gals. (Sorry for the bad picture quality, I used my BlackBerry) The 1st 2 are the 4130 uni-ball cups used in the arms. And the last one is a picture of a finished UCA, installed on a truck.

    We'll keep that in mind. The issues with stuff like that in the past, is that the colors don't always match what the customer "thinks" it's going to look like. But we're pretty open minded, as most of you know...

    Thanks!
