  1. I'll be there in the Rock Krawler Booth..
  2. That's interesting. I've always tied the axles down
  3. I was always told not to tie down the frame with straps because the load they take when the Jeep Bounces. I've always tied to the axles. Any particular reason you tie the frame down?
  4. I'll have to see if there are any setting or what. I thought I had gotten around that by uploading them from the URL. I know when I used to use the HTTP code some people weren't able to see them
  5. Did you cut out the inner vertical panel that separates the wheelwell from the lights. I trim basically back to that. There is a point where basically you have to stop if you want to leave that inner structure in there still functional.
  6. I think you could probably keep your toolbox as long as it has an inch or so on each side. of it. My towers just barely go into the cargo area width wise. Maybe an inch. Here is the pic as an attachment.
  7. I uploaded them from a URL. They are hosted on Google so I guess I'm going to have to find a new place to host pictures. Lets see if they work as attachments. .

  9. I think the one I just completed came out as a nice compromise. It is using the 12" Fox 2.5 Performance Series double adjustable CO's on all 4 corners with air bumps so it can do what it needs to. We have about 5.5" of uptravel so it doesn't sit up to tall but with the double adjustable CO's if they want to go fast they can close of the high speed compression a bunch and get after it then open them back up and have a nice ride. They could also crank a few rounds in the preload and raise it up an inch and really get after it. It would be even better if the rear CO's were outboarded but they were not interested in cutting into the body. It sits up high enough to clear the 39's but not to tall.
  10. I ran around on 39's and 40's for 65K with factory unit bearings and I think the people that bought my axles are still running.
  11. You need to do a lot of trimming in the rear.I also moved the front axle on the one I just finished about 1-3/4" forward to clear the back of the fenders and chassis. Right now in the front the tires clear everything just barely. In the rear everything just touches at full bump. Basically I cut out the rear to match the PSC flare opening. It ends up being about 3.5" which opens up the wheel well a ton. Before: After: What it looks like with the fender back on and the inner fender painted with bedliner.
  12. My next move if I keep mine is to put 14" travel shocks and bypasses in the rear but have them mounted to the rollcage.
  13. That's crazy with a 14" shock you only have 5.5" of up travel. Will the drive shaft work at full droop?
  14. I like the sound of that. LOL Running fast through rough stuff and jumping things is a little different story though. especially with something like your rig. The one I just finished you can run at a good clip and if you catch a little air it will be fine but you're not catching huge air with only five or so inches of uptravel. The problem with the JK is to get more than that and not have the rig be way up in the sky you have to cut a ton. At that point you may as well just build something purpose built.
  15. Man I don't even see how that is possible. Those are crazy light springs but I guess with the stretch there isn't near the leverage effect on the rear as there would be without the stretch. FYI The valving has nothing to do with static height unless all the compression ports are closed off. Even if that was the case it would eventually settle down at some point.
