Keep clogging away I don't care. Easier then pm. Your springs unseating on droop. Bump steer ... Control arm contact . On compression your gonna have to keep an eye on your bump stops and trac bar. Setup your bumps and limit strap your droop when you get it all worked out.

Yeh for the bumps I will be setting and prothane's I've only read good things.. For the rear I will stick to 10 inch, I agree 12 inch would be hard, I think I could do it with decent travel up and down in the front though..

Then again I'm on short arms :P it's just for bragging rights haha

Front end will be limited by control arms contacting the lower shock mounts. Move the lower shock mounts to the lower control arm mount, shave the stock lower shock mount down for clearance, and go from there. The rear end will bind because of the track bar. I want to throw a double Johnny joint track bar on the rear and see what that gains me. I think with all that done, you could pull about 12".

Awesome pic Kevin. Saw the others on Facebook. Looks like it was a good trip, except for Brian. (That's his name, right?)

Yea my hard top fits, Velcro the glass shut. I wanna run a frameless soft top. I need a couple parts. Currently have a bikini top on. My tire carrier is completely easily removable.

Ya man Mojave is some of the best. I have friends who Prerun all over and they love the run we do. Hours and hours of high speed... I need to do some change up on my jeep and after that let's go . I'll work with Justin on setting it up. We're for sure doing a death alley to Vegas run end of march
