Torch off the bolts to the hooks, did the same today at jy.

I like the Clayton rear setup as it combines some of the advantage of a 3 link as well as the 4 link advantages in stability.

As far as the BDS shocks, I just want something that will be better for a Prerunner. And the 6" springs just seem too tall lol.
Mine has a rustys front which is like iro but has short link on both sides, I removed one for better twist. Also I think rustys is way too light, I wouldn't recommend to an enemy. I like iro, I think you'd be very happy with there setup, plus they will set you up with whatever you want. I'm putting coil overs on mine this winter, can you run these? I personally wouldn't want a true 4 link long arm front as youll have pinion angle problems from hell. You could do a 4 link like my rustys rear but it is basically the same as the front with longer top arms that hook to the same point as the lowers.

Now that is something that I want to be able to do as well. What kind of setup would it take to be able to do that?

Really really good shocks is a good start lol. Then long arms with an appropriate lift to tire to width ratio

Been looking for bump stops. Mine are rotted and I need an extra two inches. Where do I start? I found extenders, but I need the whole chebang. And the rear ones I found look different and have bolts. Stock stops dont have bolts, I think.

On topic, the ZJ got a bath today. Stupid road salt.

I'm probably going to run 5150's or full external reservoir shocks. Tires are fine, short arms won't absorb the road as well. I've always believed that unless 2-3" of lift is all you want, long arms are the only way to go. Sucks that it is very pricey.

i don't think the guy in that last one thought he was going to be able to do that. that was probably one of those "OH CRAP" moments that ended up working out. all i know is that as bad as i want to do that i would need a change of pants after that.

and how badass does that first ZJ sound out of a 6...WOW

updated my jeepforum.com information... is my pic showing up? is there a way to put more than one jeep in our information area, besides just listing them in the signature? picking only one is like trying to decide which one of your children you love more (i would imagine... i have no kids).
