The Skyjacker pt# FA600 drop pitman arm should work fine if you're set up for 4" lift. I'd suggest a K-link setup for it though (less stress on the steering box shaft). A K-link or other setup would be mandatory if you want more than 4" lift with softer coils anyway.

For sure it would have.
I've concluded he must be playing a semantics card, because that post makes just about as much sense as a solid axle remaining rigid in that circumstance.
Fact remains, TTBs will outperform solid axles in a lot of offroad situations too. But there's more situations far & wide where either one would work about the same than situations where one can outperform the other. Some apparently just have a hard time realizing this.
