I don't like Stu's method at all. It may have worked well, but looks very awkward, and with my Cloaks would look even worse.

Its difficult to find any other way. I'm also looking at the inboard frame space right above the passenger upper axle bracket on the opposite side of the spring. There is some space in there and would definetly provide a cleaner look. I havent put the winch up there to see how it would fit yet though.

Right now im leaning toward the Stu method of mounting it on the coil bucket for ease of install, but im always open to suggestions.

I'll have to start getting serious about this and do the research. I have no idea really how to accomplish this.

My bud Curtis runs it of his main winch with a short piece of winch line, is actually pretty slick and easy to disconnect from the main winch line

Stu's method works and especially with a 6 cyl it's pretty hard to do it any other way. With a 4 banger there is a lil more room to play with. With coilovers a center strap suffices as far as I am concerned. One of my friends had a Jeep with coil springs that was setup that way seemed to work ok but after a few weeks of owning it he lost the coil springs so it's hard to say how well it worked that way. It worth a try center strap with about 2" slack isn't that hard to rig up

Since Superior is out of business, Ten Factory chromos are flying off the shelf. I got the last set of front chromos for a Rubicon from the guys at Rubicon Tested. They are a great company! Picking up the rears soon.

That sucks about your warranty. I would have preferred Superior EVOs but I have full confidence in the Ten Factory stuff. Heck, they are made in the same factory that the Superior Discoverys were according to the owner.

So the Jeeps sitting on it's own weight again finally. I now await my Modular Under Armor to be in stock before I can really do anything else. All I need to do is install under armor, order driveshaft, adjust pinion, center axle in wheelwell, and get new exhaust routed and I will be wheeling again.

Under armor should be in stock Friday, if not I may put my new axleshafts in and tinker with the suckdown winch.

Some pics of the new springs, blingy shocks, and blingy bumpstops.









New ride height. The tires are REALLY SMALL!



Molly approves of the new suspension and half doors.



Some quick numbers off the top of my head. This is Currie 4" springs, 1.25" BL, and worn out 32" tires.

Gas tank skid: 19"
Bottom of rocker: 26"
Stock belly pan: 17"

So with the TT and 35" tires I should be sitting around 19-20" of belly clearance after it all settles .

That's a future mod! I'm going to do the Rokmen coil/bumpstop correct and outboard the shocks later down the road.

Ha I know! I always wanted half doors. This Jeep now has 3 tops and 2 sets of doors . I found the ad literally 30 minutes after it was posted and snatched them up.

Thanks, I can't wait to do some summer runs up in Big Bear!
