Mcneil Radius Arms

The McNeil radius arm pivot brackets bolt to existing holes in the frame rails. A boxed, dimple-died tranny crossmember spans the distance between the 'rails and ties the pivot brackets together. It's clean and simple, but we can't leave well enough alone on our Ranger. For better handling and weight distribution, we're planning to shift the cab and engine a few inches rearward on the chassis, so we'll be relocating the tranny crossmember. We'll still tie the pivot brackets and crossmember together to retain the strength of the McNeil design. After eons of setting up shop and rounding up parts, it's good to finally be installing something on this truck.
