    <font color=blue>I think it's a Superlift arm for a pre-80 F150. Depdog has a J**p YJ arm on his.</font color=blue>

    Yeah, its the 76-79 F150 pitman arm that any lift kit company sells. Make sure its the drop pitman arm and not the stock arm, which is straight compared to the dropped down one from the lift co.s.

    Good info. Does anybody have any experience with how-much-drop pitman arm for a 6" inch lift? Who on this forum has used a ford arm?

    No no no!! It's NOT the F-150 arm, that one is the one you have to enlarge the tie-rod end hole on. The Jeep Wagoneer one is the one you want. Superlift part # 1104. Believe me, in the two crossovers I've done, I did it with both the Ford arm and the Jeep arm, and the Ford arm had to be enlarged.

    I am using the Ford arm and did not have to enlarge it. No complaints here.
