For a minute I forgot this was Weeder's build and not Project1's and I was about to ask why the doors were on it.

My driver door is removeable but not the pass. Lmao when i did the drive side it was a ***** because the door pin bushings were shot. So i drilled the top one out bigger. It works now i just have to find time to do the driver.

Was messing with the yj today and had to run and get some parts. So while we were at the parts store i bought some ranger shackles like mr vegas suggested and dammit if theyre not perfect. Lol great angle and boomeranged, all for 45$. Ill take it! Oh and made a new latch handle for the yj's tire carrier.

Edit: forgot pics of the latch pin

They work perfect for my rig. I need new leafs bad though. I thought about just another main leaf but for 200$ i can get new re leafs from serious offroad. Or just wait a little longer and get IRO's 3.5" leaf pack. Hmmm does anyone have a clue as to which coils spring are the best all around? I dont want something way too stiff, like in the 4-4.5" range.

I don't have a lot of experience with springs but I can tell you that IRO coils are stiffer than RE springs and rustys are softer than RE coils.

That all depends on the lift height. At least for RE stuff. Their 3.5" coils are pretty stiff, the 4.5" are fairly soft, and the 5.5" are also pretty close to the 3.5" stiffness.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

Understandable. I want something better than my 3" rc coils i have now. My rear now rides better than the front.
