I like the way that looks. What's the idea with it and can you notice a change?

The idea is the more you angle the shock the less effective the shock becomes. This means more angle = more shock travel from a shorter shock and a softer shock.

Yeah what BoD said, I mainly did it to fix my issue with having the lower shock mounts being out of alignment. With the amount I wheel my jeep and the angle/binding the shocks where in I actually bend the rr upper Mount forward which made in stalling the shock bar a pain! My ride does seem a lot nicer to me and I gain a lot of flex (down travel) from it. Now when I use the fork lift to flex the front out my other front tire leave the group long before my rears. I will try and get a pic of this !!

When are we welding it up?


BTW we will burn a bunch of the primer off.

Primer + welding = ****ty contaminated welds. Strip the primer from any and all joints.

Even after stopping it from the joints there will be some that will get burnt off. But it is better than rubbing all the rust off for paint I guess.

So I was pricing tires today and can't decide for sure on what tire to run with, I was going to just get a set of 37/14.50-15 but am thinking I am just going to stick with a 12.50 wide. I am looking at either super swamper irocks or pitbull rocker's in the 37/12.50-15 flavor............. What do you guys think?

They could be a option as well, no matter what I will be going with radials. I am planning on running my current 15x8 wheels and I don't think the 36's would be super happy on those wheels. The only way I will get new wheels 15x10's is if I go with my default toyo's I can get 5 toyo's/ 5 15x10 wheels for 1900 threw work which is about what just the irocks/rockers would cost alone for just the 5 tires! Why is life so full of choices......

Didn't you just get those 35's not too long ago? Haha.

I see you got your TeraFlex shock bar installed, I just got mine installed to. From what people told me a out putting the shocks on an angle it seems the jeep should ride better due to less valving in my stiff white shocks, my jeep actually seems to ride a bit firmer. Did you notice any ride quality difference with the shock bar installed and your shocks on a angle?

:EDIT: Oh, what shocks are you running?
