Yeah, I plan to do the relocation when I replace the shocks, probably will go with the OME or possibly Bilstein in a couple of months once the springs break in a bit. The ride is reaaly much improved over my 18 year old stock springs...

I'm on Rancho 5000 shocks right now.

Well, I got my tire size choice made for me. Picked up a basically new set of 33x10.5 BFG ATs and Cragar rims for $500, along with a streetable spare.

Also, heard the complaints on dates this week that it was too hard to get into, so the tube steps went in. Not my first choice, but they will work for now.

Looks great!
I wish I would have caught your thread when it first popped up. I just ordered almost an identical set up last week lol. I went with BERSK shackles though, and Bilstein shocks.

I see you are running with the sway bar disco'd. Hows it ride without them with this set up? Just curious how much body roll you're getting without them on the 36r's.

Cheers

I can't really tell how much of the body roll is from the sway bar being disconnected vs. the new springs. It wasn't a plan to remove the links, they just kinda disintegrated. It does have a bit of a "boaty" feel to it, so I''m getting a new pair of links to see if I like that feel better.

Springs ride amazingly though. New shocks this Summer, probably Bilsteins.

Funny cause after I asked that, I got my own lift installed. I couldn't get my sway bars back on either so I ended up having to run with out them. I agree with the "boaty" feel that it has now.
These springs do ride AWESOME. I got Bilsteins put in and they seem to match up perfect with the 36r's.

Cheers

Getting these springs was the second best thing I've ever done to the Jeep. Best thing was pulling the track bars out, and that's only #1 because it was free. I wish I'd have done this stuff years ago...

But, it's like I have an all new Jeep to drive!

Looks nice! You'll find that those tires are *excellent* in the winters around here, since we get such wet and heavy snow. The kind that packs into ice and so many places they don't plow.

Yeah, I had 31" BFG ATs for the last 10 years. Last Winter was a bit dicey as they got pretty worn. Heh, they were on there so long that the valve stems were dry rotting.

I ordered from Quadratec. They have free shipping to forum members. Can't remember the code offhand, but I'm sure you can find it if you search...

Just wanted to update... It's been 2 years, and about 5000 miles (hey, I don't take many long trips in the Jeep), and I can still definitely notice how much better the ride is with these springs. I -do- think that it took a while for them to "settle" and get to their current cushiony goodness.

Haven't gotten around to new shocks, still running the old Rancho 5000s. Hopefully will swap them out soon though.

Oh man, get ready for a whole nother level of cush once you upgrade the shocks. I got the bilstein 5100's on there, and even though my jeep is still a little light (4 banger, soft top, stock bumpers, engine and bumpers to be changed out eventually with a winch added at some point) for the 36R's on all 4 corners, it rides amazingly. My buddy has these speed bumps in his apartment complex and the jeep floats right over them when I blast through em.
