Newbie question. Do you guys use the hockey pucks with the stock bumpstops?

I hope to stay at 31's and not let this Jeep become a trail rig. Once I get some money saved up Id like to build an old willys or something of that manner. Even then I wouldnt go crazy, lifted, locked, and perhaps 35's would be plenty.

I need to get some installed pictures of the u-joints and hubs. The passenger side u-joints werent bad to replace, I really had to fight the driver side. My vice isnt big enough so I used the hammer and socket method. I need to go torque everything down then take it for a test spin.

Yes you sure can. Im hoping to get away with 2 hockey pucks instead of 3 up front with the stock bump stops. You can either glue them to the perch or drill a hole in the perch, drill through the pucks, and bolt them down. I plan on getting some 2x2 tubing to extend the rears.

We can crawl under the jeep and see what they look like compared to my stock ones, and if the mount holes are in the same place. Let me know what day works for you, Im just down the road from you.

Got some more work done on the Jeep.

Extended the turn stops so the tires dont rub the lower control arms and also a glimpse of the moog u-joints

The front fender inner seam cut my tire (siped it) so I made relief cuts, pounded it over, then undercoated it


Got my front fenders cut and undercoated. About to go back out and get the rears done.
