I don't know your skills but can you do fab work or is there somebody who might be able to help you build one?

Or do you just want to buy one?

Stability, tires not hitting frame, Cool factor alone is worth it.

I am in the same boat that i have a balljoint front end the way to go is put a link/king pin beam in but then you have o change youre frame head which requires alot of welding. it all depends on what you are going to do with your baja i just do trail riding and moderate climbing in mine

Not to be a smartass but untill you change the frame head the only one you can get for it is a BJ beam. And yes you are right you do need a new one, bad!
