Reporting back in from 400 miles of high speed dirt and some good rock crawling thrown in.

Fantastic. I really doubt there's much more that can be done with a sissy 2.0 10" fox. Jeep ran great. It's like the compression of my old fox clickers on 8 but now with rebound and ninja goodness with the small chop that use to rattle the jeep. I did have some funky rear bucking on the jeep when hitting washouts way too fast but that too be expected with my lame bump setup.... Some rear hydro bumps coming soon....

You guys on the fence... Get off already call Wayne and send a thank you to Blaine!
Thank you Blaine for setting this up!!!!

Here's a vid from before Wayne's tune with an already good setup for going fast. Fast forward to 2:30

And after his tune in the same section a few months later. With the same big *** cummins behind me too lol

Bottom line is I have a solid 40 to 60mph jeep with bursts into mid 70s in the rough, the rock crawling I did had a very planted feeling. Kinda hard to explains but overall a much better experience. The crawling was not easy either. I was in a ravine off the main trail on wheeler ridge in Nevada following built buggies....

See you guys on the trail! Thanks again Blaine and Wayne!

So as of now what is your setup??
I basically do this every weekend chasing prerunners, long travel sandrails, etc. I only have a basic 2" lift setup with some rough country shocks. Valving is horrible on these, and everyone around here ditchs wranglers for cherokees to chase.

Looking to go with some fox rear resis with high rebound valving, possibly update to a 4" lift just worried about my center of gravity.
I love your jeep! If you could help with some simple advice I'd owe you big.

My setup now is a bastard re 3.5 lift, bilstien bumps, 10" fox 2.0 resi tuned by Wayne, Trussed front, caged, lots of other useless fun junk.


My advise.... Currie 4". Anti rock front, beef up the 30, fox shocks tuned by Wayne, relocate rear upper spring perches, roll cage, and hydro bumps, and let me know if you still have money hahaha. Gears will help a lot too.

Thanks! I forgot to mention my gusseted front and poison spyder full cage.
I love the currie kit, just have to keep throwing some money in the toy fund.
I appreciate the advice!

Friend of mine who owns a local fab shop wants to do a 4.5" bds kit with adjustable control arms, the longest Fox 2.0 Resi's we can stuff in there, the front coilover brackets from polyperformance, rear ford shock tower outboard mod, and some fox bumps for now. Thoughts on that? Sorry I keep bugging you man. You're just the only one I know doing this with a short arm TJ haha

My vote is no. Reason being is the bushings in the arms and not joints. You will hammer those bushings dead pretty quick going fast. There Trac bar uses a tre, it looks like they use rear shock relocators.... Only good thing I see is the no bs warranty. But I'd prefer never to use a warranty. I don't ever want to know if a company has good customer service or not. I know the currie setup is mo $$. But it's worth every penny. Hassle free suspension you can abuse the crap out of. As far as shocks it's not about throwing the longest one in as possible. It's about have the correct size for your mounting locations to let you use all the UP and down travel you can get out of your system. The next thing you have to do... Learn how to drive fast in a TJ. It's not easy I've had many close calls riding on the edge. Years later I'm comfortable and no my limitations. The hardest thing to control is going sideways in such a small wheel base. Take your time. Don't show off and progress slowly. If you don't and you think your some kind of pro driver... Well please post pics when you munch it. Lol.

Before you even mount your shocks. Send them to Wayne at all tech. Have him work his magic.

I'll stick with the currie then.I'm just lazy and would rather ask someone who has already done this lol.

I think I've got the driving part down . I've had this jeep since 2004 and put 40,000 OFFroad miles on her in this desert. I'll just need to adjust my approach angles and such for the new parts.
Plus I do this on the weekends that we get sponsorship
