Drove it around and wow these ride so much better then the OME leaf springs! No more axle wrap but the factory shackles bottom out on the relocation brackets when I go over bumps so I need to look into that tomorrow.

I need a longer driveshaft for real this time. These leaf springs moved my axle back to where it should have been but now the splines in my driveshaft are visible at ride height. I might still go out there I just can't do anything to crazy out there. What time are you heading out there?

I also want to see what Kevin's jeep can do now.

Just playing around on Sunday, I'm at the end of the first video. The video does not do the hill justice at all.

In the beginning Kevin is testing out his new radius arm setup and new front locker.



This was the hill that destroyed my leaf springs last time I went up it.

We'll mount the gopro to your hood next time we're out there. That will help show the hills better
