I run 1.5 on the Dumpster project, 1.75 would probably be better.

The 1.75 would get me 4.5" of backspacing. I thought that would be better to clear the Swaybars.

I'm getting really sick of this weather. Two storms last week. Snow Wednesday through Saturday with 6-10 inches tonight. More snow next week Sunday to Wednesday. Global warming my ***! Last two years it has been in the 70's this time of the year.

Move out of "misery". as for spacers, when I ran moabs still, I ran 1.25" spacers and I cleared the swaylock except at full lock/stuff and that was just because my Pitbulls have massive shoulder lugs.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

17.7" of snow fall here last night. My parents who live 15 minutes away got 22".


I was thinking the 1.75" spacers which would give me 4.5" of BS to make sure I can clear the rear sway bar when its put back in. Where did you find 1.25" spacers? All I have seen for the JK's is 1.5 and 1.75.

Its official. As soon as it warms up the Jeep is getting torn down and repainted. Color change time.

Tracking says the PSC ram will be here Monday. I need to order my hoses and go get a tap.

I guess living up here is a little easier when you have the flop in your garage ! I am way south of you and we got almost a foot of snow , that isnt supposed to happen at the end of April . Congrats on your purchase , hope it treats you well .

Just pull the dash loose and bust the welded nuts off the bottom of the tub. An impact works well for the welded cage nuts. Then replace with grade 8 hardware.

I have a box of goodies piling up. I have 2 brand new lower kentrol hinges I am throwing in the box along with the hinges for a tire carrier I never finished.
