I'm just speculating, but it looks to be on factory wheel base which makes it look like the fender, down low, just behind the tire would hit the tire if it flexed alot. Also, with tires that big, even with the TJ flares in the back it looks like the tub would hit the rear tires pretty easily too. I try to stick to rocks and other obstacles. If that jeep was mine it would be lowered, stretched and cut. But since its not, and I dont know the intended use, I cant knock the build or the owner. All I can do say that it probably wouldnt work ME.
Respectfully understood but did not build with intent to climb It would be horrible at that to say the least. I know this. Playing in deep holes is what it was built for. I'm in SC not many boulders and rocks to crawl over around here. just swamps and mud.

A dana 60 is not a one ton rear. A 14 bolt, dana 70, or Sterlings are. look under the back of some one ton trucks.

there was a time when they were used in the early 80's - 70's but they stopped that nonsense. Search a bit about dana 60's being in the rear of jeeps on 40's and you will find tales of woe. with an ARB, Cromo's, quality gears, and a truss they can be made better.


3/4 ton trucks have dana 60 rears.

I have a feeling that 99.8% of the jeepers on here rock crawl, trail ride and what not. The mud boggers def seem to be a minority here.. I'm just not one of those people whos gonna be cuttin on my babyj. Just sayin

Good luck with your soa

That's what i like about this forum, you get to see so many different setups from all over the country. phil1330's rig isn't like what I am running but I am glad I saw it because that thing looks pretty cool.

This is exactly why I wont knock someone elses build. Just because it doesn't fit MY purpose, doesn't mean its wrong. Thanks for not taking offense to my comment before, I didn't mean any. Was just trying to illustrate a point.

So what is the total estimated price for doing this lift? And could someone explain what a compcut is?

But is it just cutting the metal away from the wheelwell on the outside? That seems really simple

Yes, that is all a comp cut is. It allows for more wheel travel, and gives the owner room to stretch the wheelbase slightly for better approach/departure angles as well as gives it a bit more stability. The disadvantage to doing a stretch is you often have to find other options for your fuel tank.
It just depends on what you want your rig to do, and how far you would be willing to cut it up to get there. I personally wouldnt go more than minor fender trimming, but that is just how I like mine to look. Your opinon/needs will vary.
