building a rally truck

my friend and are building a offroad rally truck from an 94 cherokee 4.0l HO and we are putting this engine and trans and transfer cace in a 84 sj410 frame the driveline is in place but we were wondering what to do with the rear suspension as we want to get rid of the leaf spring set up and go with a 4 link or a ladderbar set up with coilovers for both cost and reliability i would like to know what would be better 4link or ladderbar set up just emailme with your opinions as i check it every day and would like to know your opinion

For cost and reliability go with leaf springs.

meanmudder - At the top of the thread, click "thread tools" and subscribe to this thread. I think you can set it up to email you when you get a reply. If people only email you their opinions, they wont be on the OFN for others to learn from.

we cant use leaf springs without making the frame longer and we want it short and we moved the front and rear diffs right to the end of the frame so our suspension has to come inboard of the rear end so that is why i wanted to know which is better ladderbar or 4 link

Ladderbars will not flex and really only work in a small movement envelope thus the double triangulated 4 link is your choice.
