Thoughts on HighLifter XP1K Trailing Arms...?


Been looking around for some new high clearance trailing arms for my XP1K and came across these. Anyone have any feedback running them on the east coast? Looks to me like the are gonna perform worst then oem trailing arms. To me it looks like that sharp angle is going to catch on rock ledges opposed to smoothly sliding over stuff. Also looks like where it necks down in the bend it's going to without a doubt bend there... this is just my observation after looking at the pics.

Jus' keep er' pinned!

    Let me try to ease your mind about this item. It is stronger than OEM. It's built from 1.5"x .25 wall steel DOM tubing. The heim joints are rated at 28,000 lbs. In all our R&D tests in the rocks, we tried hard to see what might fail to include the necked down bend. Nothing failed period. Also none of the ones we sold have had a strength problem. Our Max Clearance Trailing Arms run parallel to the frame giving 4.5 inches of added clearance over OEM. With the arched design we have eliminated the decent of the bar in FRONT of the rear tires. That completely stops any drag, hang ups or scraping in the rocks. The drive line/suspension angles stay the same as the factory. So, zero perfomance problems on the issues you are concerned about. Plus it is AMERICAN MADE right here at High Lifter.

    short update to Dan's response.  These are not tubing.  they are fully welded box construction.  They are way stronger than stock and will not brake.  if by some chance someone did brake them we would stand behind them.  there is a lot more clearance with these over stock.  the pics are deceiving unless you look at them mounted.  you gain significant clearance.  i have put a lot of miles in every condition on mine with no troubles.

    also there is no heim joint on these, they use the same spherical bearing as the factory arms.  Dan just got them confused with the other ones we make
