What does the j-arm have to do with engine/body type? Is the "J-arm" specific to any one manufacturer? Just curious.
By the way, I tried to get a set of the wheels like the ones Robby uses on his TT, Rivera uses them as well (some other TT's too) but was unsuccessful. American racing makes them especial for these guys. 17" double-throw down's....I like them a lot but had to settle for something else.

Sheeeet! That would have been pretty nice. However, I don't really need bead locks. My truck isn't as built as most everyone's here. F-150 w/A-arms, springs, Bilsteins, and 285 x 16 tires. That's it. Just enough to play and tow.
Those wheels look really nice in motion too! I have some video of the Rivera truck at the last Fireworks. Something about the design and the morning sun made them look funky on my vid.
j arms are a one piece ibeam and radius arm combo deal
so one would think it would be on a ford which has engineered and pioneered that design
and the whole truck was custom made so why they wouldnt just go a arm is interesting
how ironic is it that most people slow down for speed bumps yet almost all of us here im sure pin it
I heard it was For Sale for $ 450.000 and that includes the spare parts, tires, Big Rig, and the Big Box Van...I don't know if its been sold or not.... Somebody else told me its turning into a Chevy because he drives a Chevy for Nascar, but with the schedule I don't know where he's going to have the time to drive it.....
Just what I heard, not saying he is, not saying he isn't, I am just saying. As far as missing a NASCAR race for an off road race it won't happen, especially this year, but I have heard that Childress has become quite the fan of Robby's trophy truck so who knows what may happen in the next few years.
The reason that most trucks have J arms is because its easier to package the front end that way. With a arm up top Its awful hard to get one or two 3" shocks in there. But with a j arm you can wrap it around the shocks. Just something to think about.
