Hey SkyJ, can you post some pics of your rear shock setup? I know you built your own relocation brackets like the M.O.R.E.s that I have. Was the trackbar bracket in the way? I need to start working on mine. I was tossing around the idea of outboarding but I don't want to hack up my frame if I am going to be changing things in the near future.

Sure thing buddy. Not the best setup but it works for me.
Its close to the track bar bracket but doesn't hit.
I have to run at least a 1" body lift for these since they stick up a few inches.

Cool thanks man. I think I'll flip mine around and measure for new 5100s. If I have the energy I'll cut that damn track bar bracket off too.

The jeep has officially claimed its spot at the new house.

Now I'm going to sit back with a cold one and enjoy the view from my new back yard.

Yes and no lol I was being lazy after the swap then I finally put them on only to develop a massive leak at the valve covers so pulled them off again then I accidentally packed the bolts/hardware to install them again in with the garage stuff during the move, but it does run a tad cooler without them. Now the new plan is to build a new low profile winch mount to sink that huge winch down between the frame rails to allow maximum air flow so I will eventually get around to getting them back on hahaha! Kinda like my blue hood its been that way for over a year now. Sorry I've got ADHD

We are remodeling some offices at work so I'm gonna snag some nice cabinets and counter tops for my shop and set up my jeep garage. I have big plans for the jeep namley a sunkin winch mount and tube fenders got to get my 35's mounted on my wheels stay tuned its about to get fun again. of course still on a slim budget.

Got the new meats all mounted. Wrestled with one tire for almost an hour to try and get it to seat the bead.Then I taught my boys the ol starter fluid trick to seat the bead it worked like a charm wished I would have done it sooner. Most tires only needed about .75 oz weight to balance, but one took 5.75 oz to balance.

Nice. I'm interested to see how you sink your winch in between the frame. I may need to do the same thing. Mine is blocking some much needed airflow.

The good news is we both run an upright winch that bolt to the front not underneath and they will fit nicely between the frame without steering box interference. That is my next project first I have to run some wire for a plug for my welder my breaker box in the garage is full so I will have to run the wire all the way from the meter base on the opposite side of the house so it wont be cheap $$.

The balance weights - are those the normal exterior kind? balanced via machine? did you do that at home too???

Yes I used a machine to check my balance then Hammered them on where it told me too. My FIL works at a dealership so I can use their equipment as long as he is there to supervise.
It wont be to hard to run a wire from meter base to garage. I got a nice crawlspace and it attaches to the garage so just drill some holes and run wire pretty simple just a long distance.

I feel ya on that. My garage is 75-100' from the house and has no box. there is just a 12g wire trenched out there from a 20a breaker in the house. I wish I knew how to put bigger service out there for 220, or at least have the breaker out there so I dont have to walk so far when it trips :O

Flexed it out in the ditch at the new place. I must say these tires are a perfect fit and so comfy cruising down the road. No vibes at all up to 85 I even had a vibe at 70 with my bfg's I always thought it was a driveline vibe but smooth as silk with these. I'm stoked!! goin wheeling on the 23rd.
