Also to get on the same page, when I say full bump I mean both sides full stuffed. I'm telling you to check because that is where I had issues and I had to limit my travel so that the tie rod doesn't go banging into the pitman arm. But I have roughly 2 inches of stretch in the front
I like to take it to work occasionally so that may be the route I take. I have been looking all morning, looks like Genright makes a good kit.

I only pushed the axle forward an inch. I checked clearances before I put the springs in with both sides stuffed. My TR is from Rock Krawler and is bent out pretty far. Not sure if this is why it cleared, but no contact on the pitman arm.

Just wait until you have the track bar corrected. As it stands now, you've got a lot of room for improvement.

OlllllllO

I do not doubt that. This has turned into quite the project. but compared to the original Rock Krawler setup this seems to be a huge improvement.

In your opinion is the Genright TB kit a good direction to go?

As long as the track bar is very close in length to the DL and the mounting points are parallel with the drag link's mounting points, then sure. Don't lock yourself into "kits".....you're past the point of off-the-shelf solutions being a sure solution.

OlllllllO

Gotcha. Shouldn't be that hard to figure out right...

That kit is what I was looking into also. The "kit" just includes everything for you to make your own custom set up at a one stop shop.

great videos! I had to look at your profile to see if you where in an auto or manual tranny. I was watching the first video thinking, having to work the clutch I would have just rolled back when you stopped half way.

Stick would have been tough on that for sure. I had to put in a half quart of ATF for the wall

Thanks man

One of my favorite trails at SMORR. I'm in front of the Red JK. All this web wheeling is making me anxious for this weekend.
