There is a good bit of math and research you could avoid by going with my Fox 12" C/O's, they are setup perfectly for a TJ's front weight. My rig comes in right at 4000lbs, which I'm guessing yours is close to. I almost don't want to swap to 14"s because of how well it works right now.

I'll keep you posted and will cut you a deal if I go through with it.

So what spring combination are you using now in the front? Dual rate or tripple?

Is your Tj firm or soft when on the street?

Building my junk with more junk, so Im always on the look out for more junk....Free to cheap preferably. :D

200/300

The front feels perfect and eats speed bumps and pot holes without the driver hardly noticing. The rear is noticeably stiffer and definitely feels like I just threw some random shocks and springs on.

Keep in mind that I run an internal fuel cell (no skid plate), no rear bumper (just a Genright cross member), and currently do not carry a spare. So I'm pretty light back there.



I should have a good bit of info and direction after I meet with Carolina Truggies on Monday.

Jay do you know valving you have? If you dont look on the seal cap on the bottom of the shock where the shaft goes in. You probably have 50/80 but I just want to confirm that. I have some thoughts.

Back from Carolina Truggies! This shop should be mentioned anytime guys are looking for custom work. The projects that come out of there and quality of work is some of the best I have seen. Unfortunately, because I can't do some of this fab work myself, I will be using these guys early and often .

Airbumps are on! Now I just need a place to go ramp the rig .

Cellphone pics for the win.

Breaking it down:





At full bump:





Mock up and positioning:







Side plates getting welded in:







Magical spray paint action:







Finished product, 2" Profender Airbumps installed:









Done and done. I can have them swapped to 3" or 4" down the road if needed, but with my ride height, 2" seemed to be perfect.




We also talked for great links about my rear suspension and I'm still not sure which way to go. Not much room to work with, but I'm not going to go with the Profender Resi's, so they are officially for sale. Not a product performance reason, with ECORS now letting B Class guys run 4 tuneable shocks, it just makes sence to go that route.
