4 Link: Single or Dual triangulation?

4 Link: Single or Dual triangulation?
As the title states, I'm wondering what opinions are on doing a single or dual triangulation this winter when I do an axle swap?  I have a 14 bolt for the rear that I'll be trussing and 4 linking, I just haven't decided on whether I want to go with single or dual.  I'm leaning towards dual, solely for the reason that it looks cool... lol

RE: 4 Link: Single or Dual triangulation?
Dual certainly looks cool but is a packaging nightmare. I've typically run parallel lowers and triangulated uppers. Having said that, my buggy is double triangulated but I figure seeing as it is my ultimate build I might as well do everything I want to it. Big Grin

RE: 4 Link: Single or Dual triangulation?
I've been reading a couple build threads on pirate 4x4 recently, and most of them are sticking with single triangulation. One guy said he was doing dual and then switched to single, but never really gave a reason. I think I'm still going to go ahead and aim to do the dual, but if it doesn't work out in my favour, then single it is!

The only con to dual is the strength of the cross member at the t-case for the lower mounts I would think, but if built properly it would work great! Big Grin
