Hoping for the end of this month (August), or possibly the beginning of September. I have a couple of off-road trips to squeeze in before I head back out there.

My brother-in-law is driving in the ECORS KOH qualifier off-road race in Harlan on August 14th and I am going to co-drive/navigate for him. We are staying for a couple of days, so I am going to bring the TJ out for some rock crawling.

Sweet man! It's looking like end of August or beginning of September. I'll have to look at 3D again. Last time out we did TNT Rock Garden, Radical Ravine, Death Valley, Heartbreaker, #3, #56, and Wishbone.

Got my limit straps installed! I don't like the idea of "limiting" anything, but it is necessary to keep my springs from falling out. Plus, this should help with unloading while going down steep declines (ie- White Knuckle Hill, Widow Maker, etc).


Parts- Poly Performance 21" straps and 1/2" bolts. Pretty much it.



Before shot- going to go from the lower shock mount to the stock pre-drilled hole in the frame.



1/2" bolt through and hand tightened.



Lower shock mount- used a few extra washers to get some space between the strap and the shock.



All bolted up. All of 7 minutes of work



Driver's side bolted up.



Done and done.






I am going out this weekend to Schabe's Offroad (Rock Hollar trail) to test it out. Should get some excellent flex opportunities, will post pics!

How does the exhaust sound? I guess you are going with a Fuel cell? Jeep Looks killer man. How do you like the Racelines. I love them.

If you look closely at my last picture, you can see I am running two mufflers. The first one is tucked up by the transfer case, but it droned too much for my taste. It actually wasn't any more quiet than running no exhaust at all. So I had a second one added where my gas tank used to be. Sounds much better now!

I bought a fuel cell, but decided to sell it and just move the stock tank into the cab. I'll eventually replace it with a behind the rear seat cell when I have kids.

I absolutely love the Racelines, could be one of my favorite mods actually. Running at 5 psi vs. 10 or 12 has made a huge difference in grip.

You are going to need to buy either a Genright stretch tank for $900 or a Purejeep stretch tank for $700. Both mount underneath the tub and allow for a 5" stretch. I stretched mine 6+ inches, so I was going to need an Alien tank (smaller) to fit. I didn't want to lose any more gallons since I get such poor gas milage, plus I didn't want to spend another grand right now, so I relocated my stock tank into my tub.

I used limit straps to hold it down. When it comes time to put my rear seat in, I am going to put an RCI fuel cell that mounts behind the seat.



Here you can see the gas filler neck:

I took it out today for a little rock crawling! I needed to see how my limit straps were setup- if there was any adjustments to be made, etc.

Schwabe has really changed his course up. Even on 37"s and a belly up I was scraping over everything. The good news is, no lost springs! We went full droop (limited by straps) and the jeep stayed level, but kept the spring in its perch.

Last time out (at The Flats), my spotter would have to walk behind me and keep re-seating the spring. Today = Success!!!

New rear brakes are on (front is the Vanco BBK), no squeeks! First time since owning the jeep that neither my suspension nor my brakes made any noises. It was like a ninja on beadlocks today.




Sorry for the crappy pics, they are from my cellphone.

Getting started:



Flexing out, testing the straps:



Full stuff on passenger rear:



Full droop on driver's rear. Spring retained!:



Kept on crawling...:



Flexed out again, still no issues:

What shocks are those? And I love the Ninja on beadlocks comment. That made me lol for real. I wish my Jeep would stop squeeking. It seems like every time I stop one, I find another that it was covering up.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Jay,

I think you need more pictures of the wife driving or better spotting!

The Jeep is really coming along!

What setting are you running on your anti-rock? I installed mine and have been running it on the second hole towards the bumper and want to change it up but I want to keep it driveable on the streets

They are BDS standard shocks. Nothing special, $37 each, but the ride is really comfortable. I want to upgrade to some high end shocks, just haven't decided which direction to go.

It took 4 years to eliminate all of my squeeks. New shocks, new control arms. No rear sway bar, no rear track bar, no front sway bar. I have eliminated as many joints as I can and have replaced all of my brake components. Pretty simple, right?

I have mine on the most aggressive setting- the farthest hole from the bumper. With the 4 link rear, I also do not have a rear sway bar. I drive the jeep daily as does my wife and the drive is fine, no noticable body roll. I was thinking about adding a rear anti-rock, but right now I'm not sure there is a need.

Currie recommends the second hole from the tip of the arm (away from the bumper.)
