This will be my first build and i have no clue what to expect. I'm going for a medium wheeler and DD. I've done a fair bit of research and have come up with a build sheet that I want some input and knowledge on. If you could leave suggestions and honest experiences on the parts in my build sheet it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for you're time!
-4.5" BDS short arm (has most of what I need in the kit and a Steering stabilizer from my local 4x4 shop for free) http://bds-suspension.com/kit-customizer?kid=434H
-2" DetoursUSA Front shock cheaters (FSC's) http://www.detoursusa.com/fsc.php
-2.5" DetoursUSA Shock relocators (rear) http://www.detoursusa.com/xjstm.php
^If I happen to run into the classic issue of the bolts breaking I will make sure to retap for 10m bolts and use these.
-JKS Front Adj. coilover spacer (If new bumper comes into play) http://www.jeep4x4center.com/jks-fro...-jks-2200.html
-Will be doing bumpstops (have no clue what to look for on that part)
Wheels and tires:
-Cragar soft 8s [California Silver/grey] 15x8 4"bs -13 offset (typical wheel you see on most jeeps)
-33x12.50/32x11.50 All-terrain/Mud (which ever i can afford) [stock gears are @3.55 will keep those gears till I am able to fund a regear to 4.56] ((Tranny cooler and tranny temp gauge will also come in time))
Talked to a guy at my 4x4 shop and he said that the Tcase drop should do my np242 just fine, if I do get terrible vibes I can take it to him and he can H&T it and throw in a HD mainshaft for $260.
If i missed anything please let me know! I'd like to not bust my head diving into my first build and not have the funds to fix something I may find while putting the stuff on.
Again thank you for reading/commenting its all greatly appreciated!
