So I was looking through the build thread and realized I forgot a recent update.

I decided that I needed a little more hight with the jeep. Especially with new tires that are a good 2 inches taller. I had TeraFlex 2" coils and 1" CrawlerReady spacers. While trying to figure out what I wanted to do, my friend mentioned he had some Rubicon Express 4.5" springs that had sagged about 1/2". He gave them to me for dirt cheap so I swapped them in.

Jeep is now measuring almost exactly 4" with all my heavy armor, And the front is not sagging any more. Jeep looks much better and rides great!

Thanks guys. After seeing the pics I wonder if my back end was closer to 4" to begin with ha ha it didn't look like it moved much.

It looks like you back end stayed the same. Either way, looks better now.

I had John Williams build the axle and get the parts. Lets just say it was better priced then a G2 axle with better parts and much faster delivery.

You can email him for a quote at Impulseoffroad@gmail.com

Let him know I referred you

Is your daughter okay with you spending her college fund on your Jeep?

Her doctor told me something I have taken to heart. She doesn't know that I don't know what I'm doing...
