I did not mount any brackets on the side where your talking about.. I used a belly pan system for a better separation in hight for the links.. The side walls are really not strong enough to support a 4link system without beefing it up with some type of frame stiffening , so if you build a frame stiffening system you can include a way to protect the brakelines.. If you look at my build there are pics of me moving the brake lines away from the side to mount the belly pan but they all went back to OEM placements… I hope this helps you...

Did you check JBA's site for pics on where they mounted the arm mounts? They used the same spot you want to use for they're lower long arms

Long arms are the easy part. Its the upper arms of the four link thats the hard part. JBA four link uses the factory tri link mounts, which from a desgin stand point isnt the best with super long lower arms.

Check out Clayton Offroad and the brackets they use for the rear 4 link on a WJ. The upper and lower frame bracket are all one piece

Synergy I think has a nice universal 4 link bracket at well. I looked at using there bracket when I contemplated 4 linking the kj. You get several options mounting and it would be hard to mess up the install to where it just wouldn't work. Great for a noob fabricator. Although after thinking about it I decided if I ever did 4 link id do it closer to how bshooter did. I believe you'd get better anti squat numbers if you built a liberty specific kit. Better numbers equals better traction. Before I wanted to use a universal kit. After learning more I'd do it the better way and get out some graph paper and my computer. If you do decide to go the easy route maybe try and find the numbers for the universal brackets when mounted the the kj. Would be pretty easy. Who knows could be pretty good. If your really looking for some travel and to make things easier defiantly be thinking about a new drive shaft as well.




Dang I miss my kj...........got very side tracked and off topic I apologize (420)
I had everything planned out.

They make his one and a separated upper and lower frame mounts. The separated could be particularly good in setting one up just for the kj without killing the bank or brains to hard. Image
