Just the standard ones Clayton pairs with their 6" coils. I think they are 11.5" of travel.

I didn't get to on far out in the weeds with the suspension, its pretty vanilla.

Maybe someday I'll get some coilovers but I had to draw the line somewhere. This is already getting close to ridiculous.

Got the driver side to the same point, same process but much quicker the second time through:





Giving the sealer time to cure, then gonna sand and hit with some paint.

Probably at a stopping point for the night. I'd planned on pull in my axles in but its been storming all day and I'll wait till it clears up some.

On a side note, the gears got here today. My welding blanket should be here Friday, gotta keep from melting the new flooring...

And for a little axle teaser, here's my front truss:

Thanks.

After doing the rear cuts I'm surprised someone isn't running 31-32s on a stock suspension with just trimming. It opens up the wheel well quite a bit.

Everyone with stock suspension is too scared to cut. Hahah.

If the rust on my back and front fenders gets much worse, you will see me cutting with stock suspension! Might as well since rust is helping me make the decision. Just at a loss on how to reuse the factory plastic bumpers I will have to trim after I remove their main connection points from the bumper and the Jeep.
