    With revolvers and stuff in my rear suspension, I'm gonna need something to help prevent axle wrap/hop etc. I was looking at the Rock Ring review on this site and noticed that the RR comes (as an option) with a deal at the top that you could mount a truss to or whatever. Could this be used as a mount for some kinda traction bar? I want the rear end to be way flexy, but need to fend off AR/H too. Any ideas?

    Good luck trying to get both. Your best bet to try is build a set of bars with end links so that way they will twist. They will still limit a little. Kind of like a 4 link set-up.

    I know someone who built what your talking about and it works great. He's got 4" springs and 4" blocks with 44" boggers so he got really bad axle wrap. He trussed his 14bolt and mounted a Y link to the top right over the diff to stop the axle wrap but it still flexes great.

    Hey J that is an option on the Rockrings.....an attachment point for the top two links in a 4 link setup. That should prevent your axle wrap and not adversely effect your flex.
