I removed my 3point linkage to use the backhoe attacment on my l3800. When I got back to my trailer, someone had stolen all of it. Is there an aftermarket kit that can be bought? I've got to replace it with something. I need to bush hog some fields.

Ouch......
That is going to be expensive!
Call Messicks, ask a salesman for their "whole goods" price.
Do not ask the parts dept. for pricing!

I doubt that there is an aftermarket kit.

Don't bother, get an OEM setup.
Any aftermarket set will be too light and cheap and will fail.

Call and confirm fit, But I do believe this is what you want:
It's in stock, and they ship quick.

Before I hustled out and bought new, I'd keep an eye on facebook maretplace for a couple of weeks, or local pawn shops. Chances of the thief actually needing it is slim. Probably needs drug money.

I'm planning on it. I'll know it if I see it. Had a couple yanmar aftermarket parts on the setup. Kept busting the adjustable OEM stuff backing up into brush.

check your local dealer scrap pile my dealer has main lift arms and some draft rods in a scrap pile a little weathered but a new coat of paint good to go he gets 100 for both lower arms. I was lucky and found the right draft rod and an original top link for 40. If you don’t have any luck I will look for you next time I am there, not sure what shipping cost would be.

Here's a picture with some dimensions of the L3961 lift arms. I can post one of the lift links if it would help.

I seen that, but sadly he doesn't have anything to compare it to, unless someone else with a L3800 with stock arms can compare for him.

Good chance it was probably sold to a scrap metal dealer for pennies.

Report it stolen to law enforcement. They won’t care, but when you see it for sale, at least there will be a pre-existing report to back up your claim.

Nope. She wasn't very friendly. Went by the dealership today. Over 2k to get it there.
I'm pretty sure that it will fit, there very little difference between models.

Can some one on here measure their L2501, L3301, L3800, and compare to post #8.
All these take the same arms.

Yes that kit will fit yours!
Some dealers are only book smart and they don't know how to cross the parts.

Take the pictures to the local scrap yards and leave them with them If it shows up tell them that there is a hundred-dollar reward for the parts. Those dealers are motivated by money and will turn in their mother for $100.
