WAIT, are you still running short arms up front? What brand? I need some sort of new arms, but I have no reason for a 3/4 link mid arm other than getting a flatter angle. I have no idea what I want to do...

Yes, for now. Just running some homeade uppers and some rear jk arms for lowers.
The flatter angle is nice, but the possible geometry improvement of a good 3/4 link setup makes it worth it. Stock geometry is pretty terrible for on throttle climbs IMO

i do not remember how much everything was because i swapped in the 8.8, got a new driveshaft, and payed for an SYE all at the same time.


yes, you can get that low, but to do that you will have to french the coil mount into the frame rail.

It's really not too bad, I kind of wish I would have gone that route originally. It would have opened up more coil options.

I installed my autopals and 90/100 bulbs today. I'll have to get a night picture but the output difference is unreal. I can actually see at dark now.

True but I if I do it I'd rather just put the coil mounts on the frame I'm ok at fab but the idea of cuttin the frame freaks me out a bit

Any pictures of how your cage ties into the frame? I can see the a-pillar but curious to the b-pillar and diagonals inside. I'm trying to get my hybrid cage planned out this week.

The interior b pillar is welded to a big plate that is welded to the floorboard on top of the frame rails. And the backseat bracing is just welded to a plate that is welded to my reinforced fenderwells.

The interior portion of the cage is more meant to add more rigedness to the body . And I'm still going to add 5 more interior tie in plates.

And the exterior which currently has 6 frame tie ins and 4 big roof tie ins, is still going to get an exterior b pillar tied into the sliders and a piece under the rear window that ties the the exterior b pillar to the rear exterior pillar. And few other tie ins. Just need some more tubing and time
