I wasnt advising/looking for one to replace the other. I was curious which one is better money spent first. I can think of solution to have both, eventually. Hands down, for me the anti-rock will be "more-Money", only reason I say that is I plan to upgrade my suspension, including shocks at the same time that I would outboard so designing and building some shock mounts for the outboard would be next to nothing. With that being said in that past I ran stock sways (bank Account limited). Now that I have a grown up job I can play a bit more. By the way Mo, followed your build for a while, LOVE your rig.

I feel like someone would have outboarded the rear shocks on a JK already if it offered any improvement in performance. Coil-overs aren't even outboarded on them.

So you're not taking any under body armor into account, when measuring weight?

I think you forget your wheelbase, in comparison to your TJ

TNTs quarter inch belly armor weighs 40lbs, for the full undercarriage. I think you forget that aluminum is 1/4 the weight of steel


I already have a 300lb 3.6L advantage on you

What does steel have to do with it? You added up the differences in weight of your winch, bumpers, rockers, wheels, and tires, and didn't mention belly skids...so I assumed you weren't adding....Dick

On the TNT note...you have that raging boner for Nemesis, why not hold out a little while longer? A little bird tells me they're awfully close with finishing up the design for their aluminum skid package

haha - i actually completely forgot about the belly armor - i was just trying to make it look like i knew what i was smarter than i really am. regardless im being generous with my weights, so im hoping i'll still be able to hit my target of 4500. that should put me at about a full 1000-1200lbs lighter than your average EVO jeep

Any of you guys speak Chevy? Specifically vortec 7.4?

Edit - I'm not apologizing for hijacking until you have bought some tires worth looking at

Solar panels?

Will the top support carry much weight? Looks like aluminum.
