    I was searching ebay for crossover arms and seen a couple that just had a large hole that I assume just goes over the exsisting kingpin cover.:confused: This design seems like it would be weaker then say ORD's but would it be strong enuff for the weekend warrior?

    if its cold-rolled steel and sufficiently thick, its not a problem. I have run both rockstomper and WFO concepts arms with hydro and big meats... no arm-strength issues at all.

    ORD's arm has the hole too. They just weld in a cap on the top to act as the kingpin cover so you don't have to use the stock one. You can't see the hole but it is there.

    Yeah I knew the hole was there just figured the hole in the ones that the original kingpin cover is used is going to be bigger taking some of the strength. Probably not enuff to be an issue.
    Thanks
