Long Arms (and Coilovers)

Does anyone out there have a true long arm (front and rear) setup for the Gladiator ? I seen somewhere that Evo was working on one but I haven't seen it offered (or anyone running it). Thinking ahead...

I think I saw that EVO did a custom one off trailing arm type rear on a JL or JT but not sure.

I've heard one of my friends talk about some company with a 3 or 4 link kit but I wasn't paying attention because I don't have a JT

Any reason why you wouldn't consider a hemi conversion instead ?
Yup, same reason why I don't have a HEMI in my JK. They are really big, really heavy and have a lot of issues with overheating. Also, an LT is a much more modern engine with more real power from idle and I like that it can be coupled to an 8 or 10 speed transmission.

Not to mention the LT is cheaper than an equivalent Hemi swap.

Iron Rock has a bolt on long arm kit for front and rear. Convenient, but I'd wait for EVO, haven't heard good things about the Iron Rock set up.
Yup I seen that - but it seems like a whole lot of work to bolt on new mounts - you still have to cut the old mounts off it looks like - after reading through and watching the process - i am willing to bet it will be easier (if you can weld ofcourse) and more secure to just weld the new control arms mounts into place.
