You should talk to Blaine about co's in the rear. He's got it all worked out, but fair warning, like anything, it's a lot of work to do it right. Essentially back halfing the frame, running it more narrow. If you don't you'll bind the co's against the frame on droop. You don't HAVE to backhalf it, but if you dont you'll be notching the frame. If you do decide to backhalf it, I think it's ATX Motorsports I saw on pirate with a pretty trick/cheap kit that will do the job. I just didn't want to do all this work now for everything, and then cut it all out for co's. As for the AR, you'll probably need to do the 45" universal kit, and then mount it backwards.

And yes, bringing wildman bill with you is a must. How is the carnage king these days?

"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.

Lol, he actually put his hood into a tree when we were at The Flats. Same exact tree my brother-in-law hit in his XJ last year. I think we need to name it now .

Not only that, but I'm going to have to figure out how to squeeze some airbumps in the rear too . And figure out where the rear anti-rock will mount. It's like trying to stuff 10 pounds of **** in a 5 pound bag. At the end of the day, someone is going to have **** on them.


Yes, we will make a trip work for sure. Bill is already talking about Crozet possibly in December. I was trying to push him to Harlan though, since he has never been.
You will not ne able to put CO u.der the rear with your axles Jay, unless you notch the fram, run 2inch spacers, and 2.5" backspacing. Or do a complete rear frame mod. Trust me on this. Your tires will rub the CO and it will also bind on the frame. As fare as the rear anti rock goes just let me know and I can senx you some pics of how I installed mine.

I would also consider puting a swaylock in the rear. I am going to take my anti rock out, put it under Tina's rear and put a swaylock under my rear.

Going to The Farm's fall crawl this weekend, anyone local headed that way?

I'm picking up a set of Spydertrax spacers and a pair of 2" Black Diamond springs for the Rally Cross event (on the 13th). It's funny, the TJ is setup around 3.5" and tight today for daily driving. I'll keep it at 3.5", but losen it up up for The Farm, then tighten it back up and drop it 1.5" for the Rally event. All with in 8 days of each other .

So in the next two weeks, the rig will be getting groceries, going to slow crawl one of the tougher private rock parks in North Carolina, then off to a local dirt track for some friendly drifting .



The Farm info for those who may want to come and play:

Any thoughts on something like this?

Quote:
The Profender RTC steering damper acts as a stabilizer and helps to return your steering wheel to the center.
The coil-over design helps keep the steering centered; no matter the road surface or terrain. When compressed, the spring pushes back to the neutral position. When extended, the spring pulls back to the neutral position.

Ever had your tire spin your wheel back at you? Want to increase the power of that?

woulden't there be increased resistance at the steering wheel when trying to turn?

I would think so.

Agreed, it looks cool, but why add more strain to the steering system than 37's already provide

No, just an increase on the amount of work the steering box would have to do to do the same job as before.

OlllllllO

I've been pondering this since my last post, and I can't come up with a reason why you would want a faster "return to center" at the expense of losing turning force. Desert racing is the ONLY thing I can think of, but they run some variation of hydro don't they...
