Front: A=driver B=passenger
Rear: A=passenger B=Driver

The A springs are taller, and are supposed to offset the weight of the driver and the torque of the motor....or so I was told.

And just wait until you get that front bumper and put some weight on the OME HD suspension. The ride gets even better.
And how was the install of the anti-rock? I'm looking at that as my next upgrade.
Thanks. I'm going to go with a Skidrow engine skid, for now, to get rid of the stock tranny skid and protect my oil pan.

Down the road (Stage 2) I want to do a tummy tuck, but that will involve adjustable control arms, CV drive shaft and maybe a couple of other things. After throwing almost 5 grand into this thing the wife really isn't up for more big upgrades at them moment.


The antirock didn't take very long at all. The nylon bushings that go in the tube behind the front bumper were the worst part. They didn't want to fit. I filed the inside of the tube a bit, then applied some heat....they went right in. I checked out the write up on Stu-Offroad before they even arrived.

The ride is pretty good right now and I'm hoping the bumper/winch combo doesn't cause too much sag. If it does I'll just install some spacers.

I don't know if animals are allowed at Badlands, if so, why haven't you brought her there?

They are, I've thought about it, but I usually have her seat full of gear.

Speedohealer

I installed the Speedohealer today, and no that's not a pill you take to keep you from wearing a banana hammock in public.

The install was pretty easy, just like Blue Monkey Motorsports' video shows. The hardest part was disconnecting the factory connector and running the Speedohealer wire over the transfer case to the engine bay.

I ended up taping the wire end to a piece of doll rod and fed it through.

It took me 15 minutes to install and program the Speedohealer. Programming it actually took about one minute.

There's a chart that allows you to figure out what perentage you have to set. I set mine at 9.1%. I took it out for a quick spin and found it was spot on at 20, 30, 40 and 50 mph....I couldn't head out on the hwy yet, but will later, but I'm sure it's dead on there too.

Wow Deja Vu!

I just subscribed to this thread. You're taking the same path I want to (as soon as my checkbook recovers): 2" Emu, etc. My tires came first (265's) along with a 1" BL. I want to do a tummy tuck this spring; that shovel is driving me crazy.



I didn't roll a YJ before the rubi... It was a Jimmy, sporting 6.2 turbo diesel on one tons, rolling 38x15x15's. Thought I'd take the mild route with the Rubi
