Your Ultimate Goal

Nth released the full kit that I want. Now I'm working with Spyder Customs to see if they can custom fab their crusher corners so I can get full protection and still match up to their ricoche rockers.

Long arm kit:

Crusher Corners
http://www.spydercustoms.com/index2.php

Also, if you scroll down on the spyder customs page you'll see a section called slider liners. What the hell are these for? A cushion? What for? I was almost excited because at first I thought it was supposed to add additional protection underneath...unfortunately...no.

My goal is NOT to have a trailer only rig. It'll never be my daily driver, but I just don't like the idea of having a trailer only vehicle esp since I'm still making payments on it. Any thoughts on this setup?

I'm still deciding on if I'm going air bags or coil overs...I need to see if either can work with this stretch kit.

Wouldn't it be great if someone came out with quick disconnect fender flares?

Well I asked Spyder about a custom crusher to handle the Nth Stretch kit...here is the reply...

Ahhh...so they should be out when it's time for Nth Stretch Long arm kit...good to know...

I love that kit... if only the price wasn't so INSANE! I've long considered going that route instead of upgrading my superflex kit to an RE long-arm... I just can't get over that price.

Anyway, coilovers will work just fine, but they wont be a bolt-on deal. Definately fab work needed.

The liners are basically the same thing as the Tuff Stuff rocker gasket... it goes between the tub and the rocker to keep junk from getting between them.

I know what you mean...the price is insane and it doesn't include installation or extra fab work. Oh well...I hopefully only have to do this once and I'll have this jeep forever.

I sent Nth an email asking about AiROCK and if it's compatible with the Nth stretch kit.

I would call Steve at Off Road Only about the AiROCK. He would probably know better then Nth.

You have to worry about the AiROCK being able to be coupled w/ the Nth stretch kit---- not the other way around.

There's no reason it wouldn't work... the airbags act just like springs as far as the lift kit is concerned.

You make a good point. And I guess they would mount the same as well??? I wonder if there will be any difference at all?

Maybe something for me to consider later on????? Stretching the LJ

And I just looked it up----- the Nth stretch kit seems to be compatible w/ my rig

Jeeeeez! Jason--- You had to mention the stretch.

****While thinking to myself, If I change this and that around... it might be able to be squeezed in the middle of this and that mod??? Hmmmmmm****

You don't need a stretch... it'd kill your breakover anyway. Though, it would help your departure angle.

Then you need D60s. It never ends eh?!

Ultimately I'd like to slap in a pair of Dynatrack ProRock HP60s and stretch it just enough so I can still keep the fuel tank where it belongs under the tub like the Nth kit... then cut it so I can run 40s.

Your wheelbase is already longer than a TJ = less breakover angle. So stretching your Jeep would make your breakover angle even worse. Breakover angle is the reason you installed a belly-up skid plate!

The lower your breakover angle, the more likely you'll get high centered.

BTW... when the heck are you going to get an avatar so I can recognize your posts elsewhere on the forum?
