Mine was a 97, it fit perfect till I installed the PSC resi.

So will this mod allow for a 5" stretch on 37s? You said in a PM you have since moved it to under the tub and I am just wondering why you chose to move it. Thanks!

That link didn't work. Anybody happen to know the vendor so I can try and contact him? Or have any other option? (other than Rokmen Mr. McFly)

I have a compressor mounted there. And have an '06 if that matters.

Yes, it had to move....I couldn't fit it without it sticking out and hurting the aesthetics and being in the way of the tire and full stuff.

I performed a total water pump swap from start to finish in 55 minutes yesterday on the Jeep. New OE water pump, upper radiator hose, fan clutch, pulley, belt and full 10 qt. Right @ 55 minutes work time. I was rather pumped at that.

I thought you had a high flow hesco pump. Did you replace it with a stock one?

Funny how fast that kinda stuff goes after you've been doing a bunch of complex custom fabrication lol. Changing a water pump, alternator, brakes, ect. seems almost relaxing sometimes haha.

Took a little time today to get most of the remaining bad picture links fixed.......also took a trip back in time doing it. It's fun to see how things have changed so drastically.

New aluminum links are in and the axles, bump stops and everything are now adjusted and optimized. 5.5" of up travel in the front, 6.5" in the rear. That's full hard bump with 1/2" or less shock shaft remaining. Not bad for a TJ with 20" under the frame and the factory track bar mount up front.

20" under the frame on 37's? I'm close to that (not counting the skid) on 33's. that's impressive! Are you still running the 3" springs?
