Re: Core 4x4

IdahoEagle is running some of their parts and last I heard was quite happy with them.

Some pics here: http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1115517

I liked the look of that track bar bracket, but didn't want the bar or the powder coating. So I contacted them and asked about getting just the bracket, bare. No problem. So I am running that track bar bracket. It is well built.

That was several years back, and their only web presence seemed to be ebay.

Re: Core 4x4

I have their stage one control arms and have had no issues so far, pretty beefy arms for the price. If you call them they also will make a 4 link for like $1000

I'm running their adjustable upper and lowers on my wife's Grand Cherokee. EXTREMELY happy with them. I'm going to run them on my son's XJ if I ever have to replace the factory bushings.

They do have a web presence now: https://www.core4x4.com/

Re: Core 4x4

I just bought a set of UCAs from them. They arrived today. Initial inspection shows them beefy and well made. They appear to be powder coated (I didn't investigate extremely hard on this one) and look quite nice. I plan to install them next weekend.

Re: Core 4x4

I got their adjustable uppers and lowers. Pretty happy so far. Just be sure to grease them up real good upon install. I didn't at first... Terrible noises.

Re: Core 4x4

I looked at them, but wanted the kind that are bent to give extra tire clearance....they don'T make them.

I went with stock grand cherokee arms with drop brackets on my XJ for now.

Re: Core 4x4

Installed my Tier 1 UCAs today. They went on easily but I suggest new bolts for the axle side. The arms are quite a bit thicker than the originals. I'll be replacing mine soon.

Re: Core 4x4

Running their stage 2 adjustable lowers. I was told they are painted with quality automotive paint, not powdercoated. My lowers are also bent for more clearance, vertically not horizontally for tire clearance. I'm happy with mine, nice that I can drive to their shop too.

Re: Core 4x4

Long arms are on the website too: https://www.core4x4.com/products/che...rm-upgrade.php

Nice to see that you don't have to get them in orange. They have a drop down menu of colors to choose from, including "bare and disassembled".

I like having a "bare" option. It saves me a good bit of grief when I find I have to modify something.
