Yea that waterfall almost got my number. That was my first real rockcrawling trip. I was hooked from there. Im glad you guys all got out and enjoyed some wheeling. I saw Jeff in your FB pics as well. Tell everyone i say Hi.
Same here. Things have come a long way since then. Now we run that trail backwards.
Don't worry, I told everyone about your line while we were standing there spotting
So how much did those currie coils run ya? I'm really looking into the pac racing springs or the curries...but hard to decide honestly.
I'm trying to stay around 3", the pac racing 2" coils can be had in 200 or 250lbs/in. I'd go for 200 & could level my jeep with a small spacer, or get the 4" spring in 200lbs and cut them a bit. 2" springs run 18" free height and coil bind at 5.70". And they are claiming 12.40" of travel. Coil is a progressive type rate.

decided I was tired of my trackbar bracket loosening up, so I welded it. I also moved it forward about an inch and built a brace across the frame.
the uniframe was plated underneath the bracket with 3/16" and 10ga on the passenger side where the brace hits the uniframe. I had found a couple small cracks that were welded up in the process as well.
the brace will get cut off and have removeable joints welded in so that if I need to drop the oil pan I can, but that's pretty low on the priority level.
I cut down the currie upper housing kit that I was running and welded it on the truss.
also installed a set of JKS ACOS to act as spacers and level out the jeep. I have them adjusted all the way up, so really they are just 1" spacers, to keep the front level with the rear after the shackle relocation boxes. but now I can level the jeep side-side and keep ride-height consistent once I add a cage or any other weight.
I did a lot of measuring with tires and checking clearances. I need to add 1" of bumpstop in the front for the short term. Long term I need to cut out the front inner fenders considerably to keep the tires out of them.
