Safari Gard 3rd Link vs QT arms

I have two suspension set ups: a 3rd link and a set of QT arms.

Trying to decide which to put on which truck. I have a '95 Disco with 3" OME going to be daily driver and used for long trips into the boonies. I'm also building a D90 from parts (same 3" OME) that I'll be using to tool around in and do some offroading but not sure if it'll be my daily driver. I've got 2 kids who love to take trips and the Disco is perfect for expeditions to CO, NM, CA etc. I was thinking the D90 may be the more aggressive of the 2 and I should put the 3rd link on there and move the QT arms over to the Disco that'll probably be carrying more weight on a flatter track. Any thoughts or experiences from the crowd.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Throw it on the 90. Mine drives great with it. I would get a set of exo front shock mounts to match it. There are a few good setups out there.

lets see more pix of the 90 build

I'll start a thread on the build, I have lots of pics just no time to scan 'em in to snap fish but I think the way it's set up here works well. At a stand still with the wiring harness, going to try and sort it out today, Kevin Collins is helping with that.

Follow-up Post:

Pics from above: Picking the chassis up in Colorado, loaded into a budget rental after discovering you cant flat tow a coiler and if you do you ought to keep it under 3500 RPM, We (I) blew the spun a bearing near Denver and the motor finally gave out in Springfield. At home in Texas pulling the motor from the 100" and dropping into the now galvanised chassis.

Cute kids. Yes I want to see more too. Get a cheap digital camera and user flickr as it's friendlier to you and the rest of us.
