workin on it buddy...lol....it would seem tho that all my offroad buddies are switching over to 4wheelers n side by sides....hhrrmmpphh...

on another note, the waggy finally actually broke down on me, spent several hours on the side of the interstate in the hot sun waiting on parts n tools....the water pump decided to take a crap. along with the belt and idler pulley....however i have(against my own judgement) installed a budget 2" lift temporarily to allow me to run the 31x10.50's.....i couldnt take the stationwagon look any longer...in reality it needs a 3.5-4" lift with rear springs, to fix all its real issues and worn out suspension....but at 297k and counting the waggy is still zippin down the road surprisingly well....well i guess thats it for now.......

I just don't understand the fun of a side by side.. I mean it seems just like a smaller rock bouncer.

I know right...Plus my buddy with the 2015 Honda foreman he just bought a month ago has already broken 2 axles....so i'm a lil confused how its supposed to be cheaper than a truck when the axles cost just as much....i do however own a 2005 Articcat 250 i have never riden because it needs a ring n piston kit...i had planed on fixing it to use for hunting but it would seem i might need to fix it so i can ride with my buddys.....seeing as the big giant jeep cant keep up speed wise with a group of 4wheelers....idk.........well oh yeah my front spacers for the waggy got here early, so once i have them on ill take pics of the waggys new stance....i know its bogus but after having one of the wranglers blow up n me doin 70, i just couldnt trust them any more....plus now it kinda looks like a "jeep"....the wood grain stripe down the side just screams station wagon, but now i feel like im in a "truck/Jeep" again, and it rides better somehow...might just be my imagination but i think the sidewalls are stiffer on the km2's...well thats all i got soooo........keep on jeepin

ummm so sorry fer the delay, but been distracted with the now over hunting season, and playing with and building 4wheelers...but yeah ill see if i cant dig thru my tons of pics and dredge up some...my jeep is about 100 miles away at a buds house so just steppin out to take new pics is not really an option....I can tell you this tho which might give you enuff to go on....on one side front and rear( and i switched sides front to rear) you have a y link, with one connection at frame, one at outside of axle(normal lower location) then one at top of truss/diff etc like on a factory jeep axle...the other side will only have a single link with one connection to frame and one connection on the outer end of axle( normal lower location)...the length depends on how long you want your wheel base to be and I preffer the frame mounting to be as close to the tcase x member as possible....the longer the arms the easier n greater the flex...you will have to use a track/panhard bar on front and rear with this suspension...these too i switched sides with mounting locatings...in other words if the frame connection in the front was on the left the frame connection on the rear was on the right...this prevents the vehicle from staggering hard to any one given side during hard flex...hope this helps
