I'm sure you could.  I'm wondering why a 3 piece design like that.

I bet a long arm front TJ would be very capable. 

Maybe we should proof of concept this on Josh's YJ and see what a long arm front, leaf rear YJ would do. 

I think Frank went the other way, and has leafs in the front and coils in the rear.  Not sure how long his rear arms are.

Ive always read the issue with a tj was links contacting the oil pan since the frame is narrow. would be nice to ditch the track bar

It's it "triangled" enough to warrant a track bar deletion?

Thats what intrigues me

The only reason to do that is to ditch the track bar.

if your someone who looks over your rig with a fine tooth comb after every few wheeling trips it is not an issue.

if you install and then run like a raped ape till it fails, not my most favorite solution
