Calmini makes a steering set up but I have never seen one so no experience with it. I have AC TRA's, Calmini makes them as well, and the only centerlink I'm aware of is Grassroots 4x4. With the Grassroots link you need to run OEM style TRE as the link is over sized and cuts down on the clearance for the TRE's. The Grassroots link also requires some machine work be done to the steering arm and idler arm.

I know some of the NE guys run the Calmini maybe one will chime in.

Damn. Yeah I've seen a couple of threads on the Rockhumper CL and that thing is beefy as hell. He's no longer making those if I'm correct? What are the odds I'd be alright with just getting some stronger TRE's and TRA's?

Yep that is a good one. Chuck's setup is very similar to mine.

Nice. So really is that all that should have to be touched? CL, TRE, TRA? This will mainly be for trail driving for some back country hiking and camping trips. Going to be moving to KC soon and I already have lots of plans for being close to CO! Since she is my daily driver I don't want to be able to crawl up a wall, but knowing that the weight of the 33" meats wont snap something sending me to the morgue.

Yes. The only other item I have in my steering is Bandit IA bushings, sorry left those out. Chuck has them as well. The stock ones are plastic If you are going to install them do it when the IA has to be pulled and machined to accommodate the Grassroots centerlink.
