lots of articulation gain.

downside.

the rig will dive to the wristed side when you hit the brakes.

Here is what you will gain

I thought i had a better picture but its at home.

If you are road driving, drill a second hole to lock it out, then pull the pin when crawling.

does this truck have a solid axle?
would be funny to see a TTB with a wristed arm

extend the arms rather then wristing

The ford radius arm is inherent to bind.
If you take one of them and modify it so that it pivots, it takes the bind out of it.

google: wristed radius arm.. Not to be confused with whats called a Wah (wristed axle housing)

yes it does hava solid axel.. but if i get extended ones, im guna wrist those aswell.. anything thats cheap to gain some mor flex..

the long side u sayyy... mine look about the same length and are both mounted exactly the same distance back on the frame.. let me make this easier.. the driverside or passenger side?[cheers]

I ment long side of the axle.. not long side of teh arm..lol

wrist it or extend it, don't do both.

If you extend it I ASS ume you will use Hiem joints. If you put heim joints and a pivot up front (the wrist), there is nothing stopping the axle from walkig under the rig except the other arm, wich.. isn't the strongest thing in the world since it uses a bushing. If your going to do all that, just put a 3 link in front.

also, if you extend them with heim joints, you won't have flex issues, just stability issues.

extending them has fewer downsides then wristing them
looks easier to me too

I just made mine longer and tilted the mount to the same angle as the arm and they flex real nice
