I just ordered middle and rear stiffeners from brian at HD and the service was unbelievable, so awesome. Id like to try the sliders but the more i read the more i think theyre meant for jeepspeed instead of crawl.

Yeah, I read on NAXJA that they aren't fond of rock bashing. What shackle will you use? I was to use stock or stock size...

Prob stock at first. Ive been thinking of new leaf packs, mine squeak like a mofugga. I just saw on iron rocks website they have a bb shackle, adds like .75 of lift so that might be and option also, theirs is greaseable.

How much height do the HD brackets give? I really could use a better angle back there.

Im with you on the leaf sliders vs relocation brackets. Theres a pretty wide variety of shackles out there to accomodate so many different heights, sliders would really limit options. Especially since the typical Jeep owner can never make up his mind on lift height...

except you ibjeepin, you are just set in your ways haha.

Brian said 3/4 to 1" with stock shackles. Thats the way ill wind up going. Thats the truth about height, and with just a leaf and slider your lited to "fine tune" your rear height. Sh*t i love the adjustability of relocations. I like to be able to have every bit of control over my suspension. So much to the point im very seriously considering clayton adj uppers because of the adjustability. Lol

Ibejeepin is very well set on 3" and no more, i dont blame him though. He has verrrrry stable ****. Lol

Haha I wouldnt mind using adjustable uppers and lowers to get an inch of wheelbase added plus get precise control over pinion angle, but I dont suppose i NEED that, as if necessity ever mattered in the Jeep world haha.

And nothing wrong with ibjeepins setup, very proven for sure. Im just jealous of the willpower needed to stay on such a build path. I will have 35s one day though, dammit haha.

Haha very true.

My plan that has kinda fallen into place is building mine to handle 35s and be beat on hard when my 32s wear out. One day....... Lol

Haha I think secretly thats my plan. Beef up steering, add recovery/frame stiffeners but keep it relatively mild looking. Then when the day comes that I buy 35s, just cut the damn thing up all it once to fit em and just sit back drooling lol.

All in time tho...

Btw be sure and take plenty of pictures when you get your stiffeners, specifically the rear ones. Ive got some minor rust repair to do as previously mentioned, and I will sleep much better when I beef that area up.

Will do. Ill try to do a "write up" of it. The rears are my main focus because of the frame rail swap i did. Lol

I have wheeled after the swap and i can tell you it feel sturdier, it also rides better with a solid shackle mount. haha
