    Building 4 link DIY

    Old school shit is often sketchy. Especially compared to new stuff. Iím just guessing but I think JJís have only been around 20years or so. From what I see these are some really old school builds. All motor sports have come a long way in that time. You wouldnít believe what went down the drag strip in the late 60ís and 70ís at over 200mph. Thatís not to say you should build it that way today but if it ainít broke and it passes tech? Run that shit!

    Lol, there isn't a person on this site that hasn't used some hillbilly engineering on something at one time or another. I still question the need to use a part in 2021 that is made for one specific application for another entirely different purpose altogether. ESPECIALLY when there are quality parts to specifically do the job they are intended for. Ok, 20 years ago JJ's didn't exist. They do now, so why continue to use the TRE's.

    Again, no beef with any of these guys, but no one has answered the question as to WHY they continue to use them. What is the perceived benefit???

    20yrs + ago we didn't have these nice JJ and hiem joints we do now. These TRE were used to solve a problem we had back then. That problem doesn't exist much today. Everything is easy to find online. Around here they used to build heavy 1 ton and rockwell rigs on 44s was normal for Crawling around Disney, Flat Nasty, Hot Springs etc... It worked back then. The Orange Jeep was built in 2006 and still used to this day on hard trails. He has never broke a link. Why change or try another joint? Should he change them if better joints are available now? Even though they have never broke?

    I only started this thread and asked as anyone seen this? Not agrue about how its better then modern day hiem joints. Never once said that. Only the guys who flilped their keyboard warroir caps on backwards was making these statements.


    Ps. I also deleted my post to the other website just a few min. After I posted it.

    Ok nobody here has seen it before clearly. I also understand the rigs built prior to ďnew age jointsĒ had to. It still doesnít explain why a rig built in 06 would? Hiems where most definitely around in the late 90s and ez to access them then. So once again why not use jj/heims instead of resorting back to TREs? Why continue to use them? When there are clearly better ways NOW/in 06. Thatís all we are getting at.

    You obviously are very partial to your TREs so.... Once again why do YOU/your buddies choose to keep using them?

    Ps. As far as keyboard warriors go, I thought we were all going pretty Ez lol.

    Looks to me like everyone has been pretty easy on you. A few questions, and a a few memes, but itís the Internet. Thatís what people do.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
