Time for the good stuff. Well I was gonna do a 3.5in lift but said f*** it go big of go home. So I used my dads old MJ v6 4in lift coils along with a 1.75 spacer to get around 5+in of lift.But before that had some work to still do.
Found some 30x9.50 tires and rims couldnt beat the price 50 bucks all 4. In ok con. Little worn but good for now. While it sits longer my orignial canyons were beat and the tires were shot and all flat.
How it looks.
Now time for the lift.
The coils. Eww dirty
I like red so Im gonna make this all red.
Cleaned up the rust and then painted. BTW this is an xj front axle with 740 U joints.
Rear axle is on the ground. Its all cleaned and painted now. Coils will be in soon. Im doing the F>R swap if I cant get the lift I want I have my old xj 3in lift coils that will go there instead. I have a .75in spacer going in the back as well.
Front coils painted red too.
Idk. Some 4wd shop.
I drove 2hrs to go this dam trans 2 time. Wasted 100 bucks in gas in the wj and my boys dodge here we stoped somewere off of 295 to take pics.
Oh I did check trans out at work as well. Its legit. I think they used better gears idk if its a true rock krawler but the gears are way thicker than the regualr 42re.. Could be the dodge 44re parts inside. IDK im a ford tech.
The V6 MJ coils will give you same height. Didnt know. They looked about same maybe little taller but they are rated for more than the I6 ones. "Just a note for anyone."
Here Stock I6. XJ 2.5in then MJ V6 4in.
Its gonna be as high as the jeep. its a tandem axle. So im gonna move the axles and use prob a dead ls axle or some sort of minivan. The deck will be some 4x6s thick and im gonna raise the pintal up a little. some bigger tires and a new drop. but how it sits all it needs is a deck and its good to roll. 75 bucks couldnt pass it up. A buddy of mine.
Well go the back coils in about a min ago. Prob onna need a trac bar for the back. The axle is pulled to the right of the jeep. That or im gonna need a bigger crank strap and hook it to the wj and pull. Also have to bring it back 3in. Will post pics in a few.
