it would have to roll down a hill hit a tree and catch a stick on the way down before it would pop off. that being said the body would fall off if it took a hard hit but it would have to be a very hard hit. the velcro works flawlessly sometimes you gotta adjust the body to fit perfectly center but thats okay and takes 2 seconds.

you can use the 4 link truss that comes with the TR version, use the long links for the lowers and the short links for the uppers.

the kit doesnt come with the 4 link truss you have to buy it seperately, 1 for the back and 1 for the front. now that being said, the kit doesnt come with upper links to make the 4 link, so you will need to get upper links to 4 link the kit

you can buy the ax10 bent link kit, but that is also for a 3link setup, so you would need to purchase 2 bent link kits to 4 link the truck remembering that it doesn''t come with the 4 link plate or truss, still need to buy those seperately

I ordered the additional axial bars when I ordered the kit so I could 4-link it. I wasnt sure if I could use the truss on the front or if I had to do it some other way - thanks for clearing that one up! I'll get the extra truss on order for the front. I saw the need as outlined by Black Venom for longer links for the NB JK body, so I ordered those as well. I can't wait to start putting this puppy together. I guess I'll have to start a new thread to document that road trip...

I hope I can keep hitting you up for clues and suggestions since you've done the NB JK body already.

dosnt that put the driveshaft into a bind when flexing? i tried it and didnt like how it pointed up. i run 106 lowers 98 uppers. the driveshafts are pointed right at the tranny. if building your own links for the axial 4 link truss i would always use 8mm shorter uppers then the lowers. it keeps that same angle.
