Really no reason for them to be adjustable, I made plenty of measurements before hand. So I know there set exactly the way I need them.

played around at the shop today testing the suspension flex a little.

the rubicon shocks arent enough anymore, time for some longer travel shocks and longer brakelines for the front.

also played with the rear spring pack and removed one of the leafs. it now compresses the way i want it to. and after i install some longer shackles i should have more of a droop improvement.
