Yea, savvy. Well, I'm stuffing it which is going to required some customization of the skid & possibly the frame.

I hope you're not actually thinking those are gonna work.....

Currie 3" rear springs are in. Free height is 16" compared to the RC 2.5" 15". I gained 3/4", which is perfect. I was sitting level and like just a little rake. So far, so good, they ride great. Tomorrow, I'll be starting the JJ vs. Duroflex test and will hopefully swap them out Thursday night.

you dont think they would be strong enough? I like the idea of adjustability, as long as it holds up, and I was thinking 4 bolts instead of the two in the pics on their site.

Unless you have full width axles you're going to have trouble with clearance

James (Bennettj13) couldn't make them work or fit and he has JK axles. He's pretty good at making things work and if he can't do it, I don't have much confidence in them when it comes to fitting them on the stock TJ frame. Cut the front off and replace it with box tube that runs inboard of the factory frame and you'll make them work just fine. I wouldn't go cutting anything off yet, let's just say that.

I could ask the buyer if he's cool with that. He's going to strip my jeep down to the body and frame anyway!!!! I've actually got my factory shafts that could be put back in and you can keep yours for spares. How much are you willing to give? I'd probably just give the cash to the buyer. Shoot me a PM if you want them.
