I finally got both of my shocks mocked up on both sides. Everything seems to be working well except for one minor-ish issue.
Here are some pictures:
Full stuff driver and full droop passenger.
A side view with the drivers side stuffed:
And for the 'issue'. I have a cab and chassis 14bff which is 63" WMS-WMS. I had originally planned to run H2 wheels to keep things narrow. I found the Iroks cheap with wheels and picked them up. The steel wheels have 4.5" backspacing. The H2 wheels have ~5.5" backspacing. Shortly after getting the 39's I realized that the H2's weren't going to work. Then this week, I realized that the steel wheels that came with my tires aren't going to work without some significant suspension travel limitations. Otherwise the tire will contact the shock at the limits of suspension travel. In the pictures above I have placed ~0.5" of washers on the wheel studs to space the wheel away from the hub. This allows the tires to travel through the full range of motion allowed by the shocks without contacting anything. The issue is that this thing is getting wider and wider. Here is a shot down the side of the jeep:
So you can see that there is a significant amount of tire sticking out past the body of the jeep. ~8" of tread to be a little more precise which is ~2" further than I was planning. It will make meeting tire coverage requirements a challenge. I think that I can figure something out to solve this issue. I definitely can't go any wider though. Unfortunately this also means that I have 2 sets of wheels that won't work. The way I see it, I have 2 options.
1. New wheels ($$$$)
2. 1.5" spacers to use the H2 wheels. ($)
The only issue with spacers is that is is going to somewhat complicate the modifications that I'm going to make the my front Dana 60. Any thoughts?
