We could hit Cow Mt afterwards for some offroading fun. It's only 20mins away from the shop. Of course pizza-n-brew after as well. We'll play it by ear. I'm in no hurry to change it. It's been leaking since I've owned the heep,lol!

Concerning my front diff clearance. I took these pics when I put the 32's on. I had to add 3/4" bump extensions, so I did the full bump test. My estimate of having 5/8" clearance may of been exaggerated a bit. I'm thinking it's more like 3/8" clearance. I may be in trouble! In the second pic, you can see the tie rod just barely clears the TB. Sorry to clutter your build.
Not cluttering it in the least and hmm, it's hard to tell but yea. How much lift do you have again? My track bar/frame seems to be a good 4-6" higher than yours despite my only having 4" of suspension lift.

OME 2.5" lift. JKS TB, ZJ tie rod. Those pics are at full bump with the jounce bumpers pulled, so it can't get any worse than that.

Ah okay, that makes more sense then. I was like "Holy ****, his TB sits in front of his diff like that?"

Well like I said. If I come up for the RMS and wheeling, we can throw it on and bump it out just to see how it all lines up on your rig. Even though I literally just changed the front Diff fluid for the second time in less than 500 miles lmao

Naw, we don't need to do that, but thanks for offering. I may just go for it and see. Worst case scenario, I dial the CA's back a bit.

What as gspup said.

And also don't rule out the Savvy 3" coils or 3" AEV coils.

Does AEV still make 3" coils for TJ?

You could alway get a set of OME 2.5 HD ZJ/LJ springs for it.

I like my 933/942 combo. ZJ/LJ springs would be too stiff IMO. I might as well just add .5" coil spacers if I'm looking for 3 inches.

Not on their site, but they may still have some sets if you call them up. Otherwise they pop up in classified now and again.

Found a pretty good RMS write-up. Thought I'd share.
