I'm interested in seeing some pictures of your shock setup when you get a chance. Have you relocated the front shock mounts at all?

Hai, did you do a body lift?!?!

For those thinking about doing the front uppers, there's a write up in tj tech.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"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.

How else would I be running 12" travel shocks on 3" springs? I also said they were extended on the previous page.

I installed the trac bar today... Very smooth after i searched around town for a 9/16 16 thread for the frame side bolt. Napa had them.. they have about every size and all types.. The trac it was set at was very very close to mine.. I only adjusted it about a 1/16 or a little more. Works great. Tomorrow ill set the bumps to make sure no diff smacking! Thanks buddy

They are RockKrawler Rear triangulated uppers for those that are confused.

The TJ is coming along nice! I like those Rokmen front tubes on your rig.
