I like how the Dual JJ and the heavy duty arms improved the ride quality and the on-road handling. I have yet to go off-road my group of Jeepers can't get there times together to take a trip. I do remember reading somewhere that Dual JJ cause a Harsher ride than Urethane. This is true. But I love the way my Rig feels now. I think when I get the shocks Outboarded next week I will like it even more.

I got it put back together. I have the old winch cable and hook. But I have to have the hook put back on the cable. I really want some new winch rope and an aluminum fairlead. I got a quote from Northridge for 235.00

I feel the same way about the JJ's. You feel a little more but the ride is so tight and controlled, you'd have to be crazy not to appreciate it.

New pictures added on Page 1 and 3.

Not much going on this weekend just rained on my plans to go to wheelin-in-the-country. Maybe next weekend I can try out all these parts. Its hard to believe I started this major leg of my build Feb 2. No wonder I am so tired. Thanks Uncle Sam.

Are those F250 or F350 towers you're using? which year? I remember you mentioning them and I knew these towers have been used for years in the front of CJs/YJs to fit a longer shock, but I didn't think they were frenching them into the frame. How thick are they? The Gen-Right brackets are 1/4" which is thicker than the TJ frame wall thickness. At $300 for the Gen-Right I think you're going the right direction. Good luck on that project Saturday.

Good meeting up you the other day. I want to see your rig in person sometime. I'll follow up on the other stuff we talked about too.

Part Number E5TZ-18183-A I am not sure what they are originally from. they are 1/4 in thick stamped plates. Little long just trim to fit.

I was going to get the ones with the flare. Then I was talking to Sean on the phone, he says he likes the look of the ones without, that is what he installed on his Jeep. So I ordered the ones with no flare. I talked to Jeff @Rokmen yesterday my fenders will ship the week after EJS they are waiting on packaging. I am so stoked.


Thanks for the compliment.

Thanks, I made all my orders in stages. But with work being slow it opened up some extra time in the day to get some stuff done on my Jeep.

I am going to install my Riddler front diff cover sometime this weekend, I just picked up some gear oil at advance.




There is a little Undercover Fabworks Skid hanging out under there.

Those are from the ford F150-350 line of various years. They all used the same shock towers at various points. I'm running them up front. When I ordered them from a 85 or 89 or something (I forget now) F350, they shipped me those. It's all good though, they are beefy as hell.

Buy another set and run them up front too. Cram a bigger shock in there with them highlines

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

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.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.
