So I can't decide what I want for this thing, I've been looking at 4" Savvy lift, UCF UHC TT, 35s. Seem's like everyone runs this setup and it works but I like the idea of staying lower. The wheelbase is so short I feel like it benefits from being as low as it can. The pinion angle also scares me, it seems like it would be pretty extreme.

So I've been thinking of Savvy arms, 2" coils, UCF UHC TT, Rokmen highlines, 35s. Anyone got any advice on this? I go back and forth on what I want. I'd really like to hear from anyone who has gone the 2" route and if they ran into any issues. I do have the Dynatrac cover on the front, and hear that it will hit aftermarket trackbars at this height, I won't take any shortcuts or put any band aids, I want this thing right But I don't really want to get into mid arms and 4 links.... yet

Installed a tri band antenna on the Jeep today. Now i can talk to everyone on cb or ham

I'm hoping that the way it is mounted will work out, Going to test it out this weekend at Cougar Buttes.

Did some wheeling on Bullfrog in Cougar Buttes today, I need to mount my antenna differently but no biggie.

Also, I was really able to spot the weaknesses in the Jeep today as well as other rigs similar to how I was going to build mine. I've changed directions and am most likely going long arm now, Possibly the Clayton Pro series.

Unfortunately I didn't get many pics, this is the only obstacle I have pictures on. Some others I wheeled with might have more pictures.







Carnage!

Got some Polk DB521s and Nalin adapters for the dash. Radio actually sounds decent now. The stock speakers sucked.

Thanks! Even getting into the lineup was a surprise. I probably wont enter again till I get 35s though lol.

Well I've been waiting for the Savvy step sliders to get in stock. I think i might be close to getting the build on soon as well. More details later

Savvy sliders, BL,MML, and Novak UCF was having free shipping so I ordered their Ultra High Clearance TT and LoPro mount. Saved over $100 that way.

Got my Bl/MML on today... It really wasn't as bad as I anticipated just time consuming.

The new ride height until I get 4" springs:



The Spacer:



Instead of going through the drama of removing the motor mount off the block we just cut the head off of the through bolt on the drivers side. Used a small air grinder and 3" cut off wheel.



Now the thing that was supposed to not cause any trouble at all... The Shifter! It hit the console bezel so we took it out, got it red hot and tried to bend it. It wouldn't budge . So now I'm running without the bezel/boot until I get the TT on, which may be a while as I still need adjustable CA's and driveshaft.
