Why the different length? Is the body of the bypass shorter than the coilovers?

No it is the same, its just that the 16" bypasses i got on a trade so we just made the mounts a little higher on the engine cage to match with the 14's.

Hey man I absolutely love your jeep and have been in the beginning stages of planning a prerunner build. I need some advice though. What kind of lift and height do you recommend aswell as tire size, shocks, shock travel length. I want to do a roll cage and just mout the shocks on the cage. What all do you recommend and what would be crucial to begin with and what would come later as either optional or not as crucial to the build. I plan on doing this over the next 5 years or so so budget isn't a set in stone thing. If you don't mind be being personal, how much money have you put into this build, if not that's alright. Thanks man! Love the jeep.

Sent from my iPhone using JeepForum so it probably looks goofy.

Thanks, and sorry for not responding sooner i haven't been on here for a while..
I would start off with plating the unibody as much as you can and if you do plan on doing a cage tie the cage in to the unibody (after the plating) as much as you can. The lift,tires and all that is pretty much up to you and how high you want to go ( i personally wouldn't go higher than 5" if its going to be a prerunner type rig). Send me a pm with any questions you have i will be glad to help you out with any questions.
