Oh maybe I missed it. I was skimming through your build and saw something about air bumpstops. Was curious what bumpstops your running cause I need to figure mine out too

Even if you don't go fast, shocks aren't designed to support the weight of your rig when flexed.

In the back i put in a rear extended XJ bump stop with a 3" spacer. This is temporary until i get my 2.0" fox bumps for the rear.


Yea they are 2.5" 12" i had to move the lower shock mount to get enough up travel.

I've only been able to go through the first 15 pages of your build so far, but thats a very nice GW you've got there Not many vehicles can pull off the woody look, but the ZJ is one of the exceptions

Gunna try and look over the rest of your build thread tonight.
