Totally forgot to ask yesterday...

In the 7th pic of the first post. It's the RC 2.5" lift, is that with or without the body lift you make mention of? Flexes really good it seems, any rubbing? Extended bumpstops?

That's all for now. That pic had pretty much sold me on what I would like to do with my platform and 31s.

All I have now is the RC 2.5" with 31s, along with JKS sway bar links and track bars front and rear. I've added 1" up front to level it out, but that crazy flex picture is without them, at Interlake, no rubbing, enough bumpstop JUST to prevent rubbing (1" if I remember correctly). Those springs are nuts....slightly softer than your normal jeep spring, but long. It's like a slinky. I'm not running a BL yet, but will install the 1.25" JKS for the 35s. I have 7" between the edge of the fender flare and edge of the tire now. With 35s, I'll have 5" between them, so I'll add the BL in order to prevent rubbing. I'll also be trimming the edges of the fenders off by 1.75". With tires, I plan on jacking one end up to see if I can make the tire rub...If it does, then I'll add some bump stop. I'm planning on keeping the jeep nice and low with lots of diff and belly clearance. I'm very confident that it will work incredibly well. Up travel will be kept, ideally, at 4", since really, that's all that's needed. Down travel and clearance are more important to me, and the 2.2 shocks provided with the kit have some serious travel and built in bumpstops, allowing them to "bottom out" with no harm done. Wonderful shocks.

UPDATE: Things are moving along quite nicely. All of the big stuff is here, except the Currie arms and HP D30. I still need to go pull the HP D30 out of an XJ at a junkyard, so once I do, both axles will go to the sand blaster. After that, they will go the Sunfire Offroad for some 4.88s. Then it's truss welding time. The JKS BL and MML are on because I had some time last weekend and decided to get it done. It's in its goofy stage right now, with about 4" of lift (2.5" + 1" spacers up front, 2.5" in the rear, 1.25" BL) on 31s. Wheels were ordered--just 5 Cragar soft 8s--from summitracing.com for $211 shipped! Pictures will come when I really get working.

PS--If anyone is interested in the stock side steps, track bar, steering, etc., just PM me. I would be glad to sell any of it. And, if you want to call dibs on some very little-worn 31x10.50x15 BFG M/Ts, PM me. I would be glad to make someone a deal. And they are still at 90%. Good day!

hey, Rod needs that track bar so he can send his back to pro comp so they can replace it, and so then he can sell it and get a JKS

UPDATE: Work has begun. The Jeep will be parked until the job is complete. I'll be driving my dad's Ford Ranger until things are finished. Next on the list is finally pulling a HP D30, getting the axles sandblasted by a local guy with GREAT prices, and then hauling them down to Sunfire Offroad for some 4.88 gears. The Currie arms were ordered today and the tires will be ordered after gearing. I can't wait to be done with this!

PS--tires and wheels were sold. I picked up my friend Dave's (dmcastino) stock tires just so the jeep could be sitting on rubber....needless to say, it's a great look.

The Cragar soft 8's. Simple, cheap, look good.

The quadratec floor mats...just in case anyone was wondering.

The powedercoating is already coming off of the Smittybilt tire carrier/bumper (my only complaint...doesn't help that I banged it on some rocks quite hard at Interlake) so I'm going to have it sandblasted then will prime/paint it. Should look very good. Overall a very functional, tough bumper for a great price....and it looks really good, too.

ROKMEN. Nuff said.

27" tires on 2.5"/1.25" BL....and yes, those are 1" spacers up front.

The Rubi 44.

The warzone.

The closet....Superior & JB conversions & Rock Krawler, OH MY!!

I still love the fact that he calls his jeep float test.

I've decided to name Jerry's jeep El Penguino. I haven't told him yet.

Keep up the work on that build Connor, let me know how you like that Rokmen TT.

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.
