Where do you cut to extend TTB ?


When I study the photos of extended ttb beams, it looks like most everybody is sectioning the beams on the outside of the radius arm bolt hole in the 6 inch section between the bolt hole and the ball joint holes. I understand this location if you want to use bolt on arms. Is there any other reason to use this cut location, If you are going to weld on your arms. Why wouldn't you make the cut on the inside of the radius arm bolt hole in the 4 inch section .this area is straight and easy to line up to weld ? The pivot points stay the same, the pinon yoke location stays the same, and you have more frame clearance. Please feel free to school me on this, what am I missing.

I don't come on here much but it is best to cut out word of the R. arm hole so you can twist the whole end of your left. The cut & turn of the lower joint only has always been a bunch of poop and is not the right way the lift the TTB's.
