Thanks guys The armor on the rig is awesome, it's also adding a bit of weight. Hopefully i will be done soon with adding steel.
Tonight I got alot of work done.
I added a 2'' spring keeper for the rear. I had a problem with dropping out the spring when fully flexed. I had two options, either add limiting strap or add a spring keeper.
Since it only over flexed about a 1/2'' i opted to weld in some 2''extentions to the top of the spring keeper to keep it under control.
Pretty simple, I will snap some pictures tomorrow.
here is a picture of what happened everytime it flexed out the rear:
So with the addition of the lockers and beefy axles, I find myself getting into more and more situations that require a little more clearance.
I ended up sourcing a 2'' spacer kit to add to my 4'' Rough country lift.30$ was a good investment. The way it sat was 3 1/2 inches of lift from the 4'' springs. They sag quite a bit and with all the additions (swing away, bumper(s) winch) So the over all lift is 5 1/2'' So that is perfect with the adjustable short arms.
I really dig the new stance. Also all the creaking went away that i had. It must have been from the rear stacked isolators. As usual i will snap a few photo's tomorrow when i get a chance.
