Picture looks good. You didn't get more because your photographer wasn't there

It is getting a complete overhaul here real soon. Teraflex shocks from 3 inch kit, clayton 3.5 coils, front extended brake lines, new teraflex brake line line extension bracket, rear terafelx bumpstops and coil retainers in rear. Should be a nice improvement.

Looking good man!

Read through all 11 pages -- thanks for posting all the wheeling pictures! It really looks like you're thoroughly enjoying it. When did you decide you needed lockers ?

Have you ran into issues where you needed bigger tires than the 33's you're running?

I actualy running 34s. They are very similar in size to 35 inch BF goodrich km2s in 35. I would love 37s but dont want to subject my dana 30 to them so 35s is tops for me for now. I decided I needed a locker within a year of wheeling it. I do some hard stuff though. would love a front locker but didnt have the cash when I got it regeared so had to pick one.

Got some updates. Installed Clayton 3.5 coils and teraflex shocks on on the jeep. also put in adj. rear sway bar links, rear lower coil retainers-Teraflex, new longer front break lines and rear terafles brake line relocation bracket. I kept the rear terafelx one inch spacer. The front only has coils, not spacers. here r some pics.

Steve I love the way the new springs look. How does it ride? Can't wait to see it flex (-:

I took out rear spacer last night. I think it sits nicer now.

Got some Clayton lower control arms that I need to put in and a new trackbar which hopefully will get rid of some DW I have been having.

The clayton arms are gigantic. No wonder they have a lifetime warranty. I dont think you could bend them absent explosives.

Steve it does look better without the spacer. I can't wait to see the Clayton arms. Did you buy a Clayton trackbar too? Let me know if you need anything.

No I got a JKS. They are replacing it for cost of shipping. Northridge actually contacted me when I complained about JKS not covering. I was told that that was wrong and they are sending me a new one. I guess its a new generation and supposed to be better.
