After looking at the previous pic I realized a couple of things. Mainly that my approach angle will be just fine. That is because the relationship between the steering box and the front axle really hasn't changed. There may be more real estate between the grill and the bumper, but the front axle has been pushed forward 6".

That thing looks great. Are you ever going to drive it on the street again? What is the wheel base?

Oh yeah. I will definitely drive it on the street. My goal from the start has been dual sport. I want to feel safe letting my wife drive the kids around in it. I have a sales meeting in Pheonix in January. I plan to drive it there, leave it at a friends house. Fly home, then fly back in Feb and go watch KOH.

Not sure yet. Once I get the air in the shocks and the spring rate set I'll get it measured

1" .250 wall tube I welded in between the rear shock mounts. The back seat goes in front and the fuel cell behind it so you will never see it. Should stiffen up the mounts and give me a place to weld some seat belt mounts

Nothin says Bling like some brand new Kings. They suggested I start out with a 300lbs over 300. That sounds way too much and I don't understand why you would want to run the same spring rate on a dual rate set up. Doesn't that defeat the purpose?

Got the shock mounts done and painted along with the grill hoop. Added the LED light bar to the bottom of the hoop. I don't really like the looks of it, maybe b/c I don't think you should have rectangular lights on a CJ. Functionally, I think it will give the best light without glare or trail damage. You an also see the power steering cooler behind it.
