This for sure. You stretch the axle back and weight is now split more with the front springs than before. Jay's jeep immediately needed lighter rate rear CO springs after the additional 5" of stretch.

I'm referring to the frame work to compensate for the stretch. Your extending of the frame looks cleaner then my notch.

Actually art that was the entrance to the new trail we made. We call it "one way"

It was a great time out.

Ok trail report time. The jeep performed AMAZINGLY! After getting used to the new lines I had to take everything went great. My tank never touched ground even when it shouldve haha. The rear felt independent from everything. It used to force the body to sway on flexy climbs but this time it just floated over everything with force my body into either direction.

The trail was a new one never ran before. We walked it and figure why not give it a try. I'm glad we did it had 6 awesome obstacles with challenges for everyone. We had two rigs running 40s, two with 37s and the other four 35s. No one had an easy run but it was doable for all of us with a nice challenge to it. Thankfully after running through some brushes we were able to find a road to complete the trail

Now for some picture
