If you look in the pics the tank is in the rear of the tub and the filler neck is sticking out over the top...

Would it be possicle to get closeups of were the tire carrier latches to the tub on the top? I have psc corners and they don't go all the way to the hinges like yours do. I just want to see if the latch is going to be hanging of the edge of the tub. Also, is there any sort of bracket that goes inside of the tub or just the bolts alone?

I just joined the site, having finally gotten my first TJ... and I gotta say. Yours is quite possibly the pinnacle of Jeepdom. Read through this entire thread and I loved every bit of it. Great job!

Gen-Rights rear stinger comes with brackets that mount on the inside of the tub and bolt under the roll cage. So it is super stout.

Do these pictures help?

In the final, final, final stages of finishing up the stretch.

There is an Off-road Show & Shine next weekend followed by a full day of rock crawling at The Flats Off-road Park. So I need to get this thing buttoned up ASAP.

Hopefully I can get this list completed by Friday:
  1. Limit straps installed
  2. Flasher mod installed
  3. Replace busted shocks (only one month old.. )
  4. Cut spring perches to allow room for shocks
  5. Get rear brakes checked
  6. Get spare Pitbull Rocker order and mounted on beadlock



First thing I needed to do was figure out how long my Limit Straps should be. So the wife and I built a ramp out of the best materials I could find...

Behold, the ramp of doom!



Melody getting the TJ lined:



Flexing out until the spring started to drop. It measured out to about 21". So now I'm not sure what to do, go with a 20" strap, or a 22" strap. Hmmmmm...



Discovered this problem is worse than I thought, so some trimming will be in order, along with another pair of shocks:





On a positive note, this is about max stuff and it is not rubbing, so I'm pleased with that!

I hear that limit straps like to stretch a bit, so even if you get a 20, your spring still might be able to unseat, or maybe it will end up right at 21. I might even go with a 21, so the spring can unseat a bit, just not near enough to fall out. Of course, ive never used limit straps, so take that for what its worth. Is it just me or is your rear flexing way more than the front?

I believe the straps only come in even numbers- ie 18, 20, 22, etc.



Regarding the flexing front vs. rear:

Rear = 4 linked stretched long arms, no track bar, no sway bar.

Front = Short arms, track bar, Anti-rock



So yeah, it probably flexes a little differently . However, it works on the street and on the trail. No vibes through 70mph on road and is as stable as a midget on a bigwheel in the rocks.

Limits straps
I disagree, polys can come in 21"s.

Well yeah, im sure that would make it flex differently, but it looks like a lot, but it could just be the picture.

DEFINITELY one of the nicest jeeps I've seen. I give it
