Does it already have a Durango box? With hydro assist you might be better off with a tapped stock TJ box because of the smaller bore. The larger bore of the durango box coupled with the high fluid needs of the assist cylinder puts a lot of demand on the pump because it needs to move so much more fluid. You can try it, it may work fine, but it may also have steering lag.

Looking forward to seeing the changes you have planned for Flop

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.
I had spidertrax spacers.

Yes it is a durango box and i have read about the lag. I have an extra tj box if this one doesn't work.

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.
Roger. Tire carrier stuff would be cool.

Flop is a girl?

We've had snow flurries all day....which is better than the 7 inches of rain we got the 2 previous days, but still sucks.

Can't wait to see the new color, I'd love to lose my yellow someday.

I'm guessing Flop won't be Flop anymore either.
