Damn those teeth are gronded down pretty bad Jay. How did the pinion look? I'm guessing it had some signs of destruction as well...

And those are some killer upper CA mounts! I'd imagine your CA snapping in half before those mounts even get dented.

Can't wait to see some pics from the Farm event!

Are considering some real rear shocks? I think the difference will be night and day compared the the basic steel bodied white shock. Especially racing those white ones have got to fade quick!

1000% Yes. After losing the first one and with only one supporting the entire rear of the jeep, it was completely faded in minutes.

I would like another pair of C/Os, but Clayton told me his rear stretch setup is not designed to go with coilovers. The angle the frame is notched, the way the shock mount sits, they just won't support or work with C/Os.

So that leaves reservoir shocks (they have to be mounted upside down because of my limited space). So I'm just trying to figure out the best way to go. But yes, I will need new ones pretty soon.

I'll check with my buddy, I think he had some Fox remote resi he was using on his TJ before swapping to tons and coilovers. Might be selling them cheap if he still has them.

A C/O would eat that up shock mount up anyway. You can buy a half back kit or go with the poly pro towers. Great job Jay!

I'd throw some beef gussets on those shock mounts for added insurance

This is what I was thinking. Maybe add a gusset on the front side of the mount to add some support.

I agree, and will do that before I race it again. However, I'm still trying to figure out how to justify ($$$) a coilover setup in the rear.



The final race of the year is November 5th at WindRock, TN and is going to be a 120 mile course! That is a little longer than the 30 mile race down in Auburn . The promoters are saying that it will be very fast and very difficult and that B Class (my class) is paying out $7,500 for 1st place!

This is from a friends LJ, It looks close to your relationship to where your frame is cut. He had some tubes bent and home made mounts at the top.

What is your stretch in the rear again? I believe his isn't as much since he was already over 100WB, But I believe with the same relationship as the picture, you can put a CO there, you will just have to cut the tube to fit it all the way back there. If I could find pictures of my friend Robs Jeep with similar stretch to yours, you could see something very similar to yours with CO's

Actually there may be some really cool suprises to come from the coverage of the race .



The November Windrock competition is estimating to be between a 4 and 6 hour race for Class B and that is a looong time to be pushing the daily driver. I've made a wish list of upgrades and I'm trying to figure out the best way to approach it.

To take what I have to the next level, axles aside, I was thinking something like the list below. While I'm still researching, the priority list would look something like this:
  • Comp Cut Rear Corners with 3" Flare
    *Sell TNT Rear Stretch Corners
  • Front 14" Airbumps
  • Rear Airbumps (not sure on size)
  • Front 14" Coilovers (re-do mount)
    *Sell Fox 12" Coilovers
  • Rear Anti-rock
  • Rear 14" Coilovers + Mount
  • Front Hi-line Tube Fenders with 3" Flare
    *Sell Front TNT Tube Fenders
I think all of that would transfer over to bigger axles, so it wouldn't be wasting too much $$$ to do those upgrades on the Rubi 44's.



If I go comp cut, I need to move the axle back a little farther, in my photoshopped pics it looks a little off- ie the tire needs to be back to fill out the comp cut better. I've also been thinking about a change back to all white. A local shop here has volunteered to body match paint them for a sweet DEAL.

Couple of examples, but I would have a flare:






This TJ has given me a lot of ideas on the direction I would like mine to migrate to, just cleaner :
