These look great, but I do not have 5+" of mounting space on the drivers side.

Have you come up with a solution? I skimmed through your thread and see that you're still planning on coil springs.

What if I had flex joints on the axle end of the lower control arm; would that still be too extreme of an angle? I'd like to use the brackets I have, because of their compact mounting width- only problem is the mount angle.

I'll be following this. With the 14 bolt I would run the same height lift but 40" + cause it will be a anchor.

Yea, guess you skimmed right over the good stuff. Here is what I plan on doing:

I agree. Tire size depends on what I can get a deal on/what will fit once it's all done. 37 minimum.

Yea, missed the good stuff. I'll probably do a similar setup with the Ballistic bracket on driver's side.

I have the same 3in1 Ballistic brackets on my D60, before i cut the stock frame side mounts off i tried to bolt the axle in to help move the jeep around, even with the flex joints on my RE arms, the control arms would not bolt up. I run a 79 axle with lots of room and i would think you would have to mount your brackets even wider than i did.

I have no problems with 37's and a shaved 14 bolt. Do your 39.5s measure out to 39.5 mounted on your jeep?

IIRC, on the jeep they measure about 38.5 @ 20 psi.

How did you like the front spool? I was considering it for some cheap, reliable, temporary traction up front. I figured I would unlock a hub on the street (or both), and then lock them once on the trail. How was the steering off road?

I plan to have it street legal, but not necessarily street-comfortable.

Spool is fine. It will pull hard to one side if you just unlock a hub and try to drive in the snow or ice. Off road it works great, just like an OX or ARB engaged. It's definitely the way to go, no moving parts and reliable.

Sounds good; I am definitely a fan of simplicity and reliability. The 14 bolt is either going to be spool or mini spool, since the carrier is so massive. The mini spool from ECGS has a lifetime warranty.

This is not a daily driver.
