Turn OD off. Makes it better. I can live with my rig as is, but hills can suck sometimes depending on what speed I'm at.
I really want to regear, but can't justify the $$ for my rig being mainly a trail rig, with occasional cruising around, which is usually to the trails, haha.
Duely noted, thank you!

Yeah, thats where I usually start. I just have a couple big ticket items that are going to take a while if they sell at all, such as the hardtop which shouldnt be terrible, and the ARB rear bumper situation - that however is going to take a special kind of person.
Last night I got some baseline info to go off of, I am fairly impressed. I truthfully have half a mind to leave the 4" springs and have quite a bit of axle movement..
I believe both the rear uptravel and downtravel are limited to the shocks, too long on the stuff side, too short on the down side.
If I was two inches shorter, in the front I could remove the bumps, and have nice tuckage in the high lines. In the rear if I massaged the rear of the fenders and leave bump alone - I should be good to go.(about 1" until bump still) The front shocks would have to be slightly shorter, and the rear about the only way for perfection would be outboarding to get both the up and down I'd like..
The front locker DEFINITELY does not work. Rear locks in, and light goes solid - front just blinks. I tried climbing a wall and had open diff action!
Probably last picture update for a while. Got the KM2's mounted yesterday, and washed it. Tires seem to ride pretty nice, very little weight to get them balanced, and are relatively quiet. So far so good.
If anybody knows of one, I need a soft top frame, possibly a tailgate bar - but I have everything else.
It's really really tall! I am happy with the overall look however. Rear flares, the PSC highlines and slammed on the ground is going to make this thing pop.
Early DJ5s used CJ5/CJ7 grills till they decided to put the inline 6 into them, the easy solution was to use the longer (protrudes forward) 5 slot grill to get the engine to fit.
ha you are correct sir...I had forgotten about the grill change in 71 when they quit using the chevy nova 4banger and went to the amc 6's...I bow my head to your memory!!!...lol...I still wanna know where I can find a 1976 dj5-e electruck electric model or maybe a 64-65 surrey gala.... right now tho ive got my eye on a 1954 chevy COE wrecker...ill never get one tho they hard to find..i know where one is for a decent price but too far away
Be carefull while Hugging the Trees...They leave dents on your Jeep....
Shhhhhh I'm not crazy...It's just the voices in my head
