Good comparison of the UD 44 vs stock 44. This picture I got from someone I talk to on Instagram. Not sure if he’s on here.

The C’s and brackets are a massive difference. Then you can see the center sections increased material even with the way the picture is set up.

Dang, what a difference! Your posts have me thinking about this.

BTW, do you still like the Exposed Racks bars? I have dual tops and about to put the soft top back on. I like it so much I may keep in on year-round. I like the utility of the hardtop for the rack and roof storage (don't have a RTT yet) but I get more enjoyment from the versatility of the soft top.

Yeah I think it is a really clever system. The click in accessories is such an easy way to mount different things. Tent, kayak attachments, etc. I hope to see other manufactures make crossbars with something similar. Backbone set up, Maximus three. Ones designed with hard top strength in mind.

Good to hear. Thanks!

Your build has inspired me. Just put 37s on my Sahara and need to work on the drivetrain. Love what you've done.

Thanks! That’s awesome! The UD 44 is a great axle to consider.

Today my buddy and I plati dipped the grille, made some quick disco’s and made a custom bracket for the single ARB high output. Under passenger seat

I know this is an old post but you're one of the very few I've seen mount the single ARB under a seat. Did you just make your bracket from a piece of steel and attached to the rear seat bolts? That's what it looks like but couldn't tell for certain. Are you still happy with it?

I went ahead and bought the compressor like yours. Will just use for tires for now but will add rear locker when my LSD wears out. Lots of mounts for the twin but not much for the single. Yours looks good.

Sorry to keep copying your work :idea:

Exactly lol. Just some random garage steel. Drilled holes and and used the seat bolts.

Perfect. That’s a good spot for mine as well. Glad it can be done simply. Thanks again for your guidance.
