Awesome build, and those videos kick a$$. It's such an interesting perspective to get while driving. I don't think I've seen another build that's gone in the direction yours has.

God that salt lake bed was a muddy mess on the way back. That was fun.

what bump stops do you have? i've been looking into some bumps for my rig. it looks like the teraflex speed bumps work well on jk's. those are pretty much the same concept as the daystar stinger bump also but much more affordable. so i was thinking about installing a set of those in the front of my tj (looks pretty easy). not sure yet how to fit a set in the rear though. how do you plan to set that up?

currently stock. I have a set of bilsteins and am looking for another pair. those internal foam bumps i hear work pretty well. I like how you can add take away or swap out internal pucks to soften or stiffen the bump stop on the stingers. those matched up with some beefy shocks would work pretty well IMO. im going with the bilstiens because of the abuse they can take. still up in the air how the foam ones will hold up over time and have yet to see them in action over woop sections. the rear is kinda tricky, the only real correct way of doing it is cutting off the upper coil mount and repositioning it so it makes the coil go straight up and down. then you can mount your bump in the coil just like the front. the biggest thing you have to be careful with is making sure your not riding on your bumps and that your bumpstop bottoms out before your shocks do. the other thing to watch for is coil spring contact on the bumpstop shock body. ill be posting pics when i get mine done and will be doing the rear first.

i've already been planning on moving the upper rear spring bucket rearward. i'd probably also outboard the shocks then as well. but for the bumpstop to mount in the center of the coil, won't you have to cut a 2" hole through the frame? i guess it wouldn't affect the structure of the frame vertically but horizontally it will be compromised. do you plan to brace the frame around that area? or is there enough room to butt the bumpstop end against the frame without recessing it?

yea then i would weld the can in place with a pinch at the bottom. I may plate the frame but it kinda depends on how it all comes together when i get into it.
