Yup. Drop off in the morning, pick up as early as that evening.

I'll try to. Never messed with shocks. Doesn't look hard at all though.

He will need an idea of the weights. Not exact, but there are 3 tunes, light, medium, and heavy.

Figure the heavy for a rig with big bumper, spare mounted on back, hard top, etc. The fronts are all similar, the backs not so much.

Thanks Blaine ill get info. I'd like an aggressive tune for me. I hit huge air today and ran a hard. 160miles. Ive def out grown this shock tune. I weighed in 4300 a while back. I'll get some updated numbers before I send them out. With today's damage the jeep is ready for some changes. This damage is after hundreds of miles of high speed dirt huge hits and rock rash on those mounts. A diff Offroad shop welded them up a while ago.

Initial impressions after the 30 minute drive home.. I have power again!

Compressor is installed and works great, air lockers engage fine. Can't wait to get the front driveshaft back in and go play in some rocks!

I think the spring company is screwing around somehow.
Blaine and I just dealt with this in December when he took care of my rear outboard. Currie is supposed to have new springs coming in this month that should hopefully resolve it.

Robert knocked out my regear to 4.88 as well and I have been very happy. I just wish I had gone with a locker up front. Hopefully I am still on track to replace the LP D30 with a ProRock 44/60 hybrid this time next year.

By the way, Colorado is beautiful (They have this thing called seasons here). Sorry we never got a chance to wheel before I moved .

I have a SpeedoHealer which I highly recommend (It was a huge convenience to have when I added the JB Conversions SS SYE). Here are the numbers I came up with for 3.73 (I thought I had updated it with 4.88). However, this converter has been very accurate. http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html

3.73

OD off
50 - 2,000
55 - 2,125
60 - 2,225
65 - 2,500

OD on
50 - 1,375
55 - 1,500
60 - 1,625
65 - 1,750
