I've been running a Currie Currectlync on my LJR for a couple years now on 37's and its been great, but I've recently got a G2 Core 44 front and Currie 60 rear and stepped up to 40's. My Problem is I bought a PSC kit and ran it last year but I've been unable to use the ram which is something I want to install this year with the bigger tires. I was looking at switching to to RPM's TJ steering kit (Crossover) but I've been going through the forums and I've been seeing a lot of bad news about cross over steering TJ's. It tends to be about 35's which is why I'm creating this thread because I wanted to know from the TJ experts Mr.Blaine and Jerry Bransford what they're thoughts are.

I don't daily this jeep but I do drive it around town on nice days and sometimes I'll take it to work. I need to replace my trackbar so I planned on doing a raised trackbar to match the new drag link angle of the RPM kit
 
Why not use the Currie steering with Blaine’s PSC kit?
I emailed Blaine a week ago about it and he hasn't responded so I've been looking into other options while I wait on a response (with the thicker brackets I don't think I need the whole kit). Also with the bigger tires I figured they will wear out the ball joints on the steering faster and I'll have to replace a whole bar and not just the joint because its one piece so I was looking at something that will be easier/cheaper to maintain until I got to one tons in a few years
 
Do you go through a lot of ball joints?


Call him, he's easy to get a hold of and always helpful.
I went through 1 Spicer ball joint and 1 Unit Bearing last year but this was a used axle when I bought it and I'm waiting on the Ball Joint Delete Kit which I'll be running this year

And I still don't know how to answer your questions. What exactly is it you are trying to do?

I was looking at running your PSC bracket kit for the Currie Currectlync. The G2 core 44 has thicker axle brackets so I figured I'd be ok with just using your Drag Link clamp because I cant find anything for a 1.25" double shear clamp. But I was looking at running a more heavy duty crossover kit which would make it easier to run but I've read that's a big No No on TJ Axles. Mind you I'm running 40's on a 44 so a lot of people consider that a Big No No as well 😄

The draglink clamp is available. Not sure what you are going to do for a cylinder since neither the Currectlync or the axle side brackets are really good enough for the larger diameter bore you should be running for 40's.

What are you doing for brakes?

I bought the TJ PSC kit (SK250) which says its good for 38-42" tires, and the G2 brackets are 3/16" thick, As for brakes I'm Running Your 16" Big Brake Kit (Which might I say have been amazing for the 4 years I've had them(y))

3/16" thick makes a lot more sense than the 3/8" thick you stated in your emails.
