thats close to what ill probly be doing, a 2 in bb and possibly 32's but most likely 31's
um we have some light trails here in hanover behind a construction company, and ive been down to plymouth which is alright i guess, i just dont quite remember exactly where in plymouth it is

I've got some tow hooks if you're looking for some. Lots of Grade 8 hardware to go with them too.

yeah your probly right, but i was thinking it might not rub quite as much since it would be a bb on top of upcountry springs but i dont know so ill almost certainly be going with 31's

if you would be willing to hold onto those tow hooks ill be more than happy to buy from a fellow jf member after i finish my suspension rebuild

alright i got my parts list off and running and heres what i got so far

2 pairs of IRO Custom Fixed Length Lower Control Arms ($260)
4 Rancho RS5000 Shocks ($179.99)
Right and Left Front Brake Calipers (waiting on a price for them thangs)
Front Sway Bar End Link Kit ($59.99)

so without the calipers, the total is just about what i was expecting at $500
first things ill buy is the shocks to return the ride quality

it feels like its been forever since ive been on here, my computer crashed and havent had access to one. so since ive had some free time without technology, ive gotten my new shocks and boy they are great, went with rs5000's from rancho. i picked up my cap rotor wires and plugs for 60 bucks. got my calipers on today, next on the list is new drums and shoes out back. then ill get some new iro control arms and then a set of bfg at's boy this is going to be one fun summer for me. i plan on ordering up a set of aluminum mopar performance heads for less than $400 a piece and then a cam and that whole kegger mod later this year. this things gonna breathe fire when everything is all said and done. i cant even begin to describe how much easier things are since i have unrestricted access to a lift at work.

thats not too far from where i am, but then again in mass nowhere is really that far.

its been a while since ive posted on here, my computer crashed and it took a while for a guy at work to fix it. but since its been down ive had time to finish my brakes up, and add a 2" bb which is currently only halfway on. encountered a little time problem when i was installing it, and i was plaaningon ordering a set of end links for the sway and i broke them putting the bb on so they are being ordered no matter if i wanted to or not. i ended up ordering the bb from iro since their price was the best i could find ($65).
