Thanks John

It was a memorable experience that's for sure.

I have enough video for probably two more videos when I get around to it.

spent a couple minutes under the jeep tonight after putting on my fancy neoprene winch cover, tightened my jam nuts and transmission bolts and Im considering going up an inch.

Possibly try the currie 3" progressive springs.

I know I have to cut my rear crossmember where the old tank ties into so my upper axle mounts dont hit but I also dont think Im utilizing full uptravel in the rear unless I go a tad higher. Not only that but in the front my tracbar is slightly rubbing the diff

Going to cut the crossmember and grind the diff down a hair and go from there.

I didn't realize yours sat so low! Thoughts on the 3.5" cloak springs? Looks like they'd maximize droop, with the right shocks of course.

My concern now is when I cut the crossmember and get more uptravel will the upper arms run into the tub.

They currently dont but thats also because the axle cant travel any higher before hitting.

We'll see, Im prepping the jeep to go wheelin this sunday and then itll sit because my baby will be born in 3 weeks or less and Ill have more important stuff to do.

How much uptravel do you have in the rear and how much room do you have between your truss and the diff? I have my uppers touching the tub while under full hard bump-axle supporting the weight of the rear. Your situation might be different as you are stretched but I don't think touching the tub under full hard bump is a bad thing. Any issues with removing the crossmember?

I have not measured what I currently have but Id guess around 4 or 5" with one side stuffed while the other droops but at hard bump with both tires up at the same time probably only 2-3"

You just have to be ready to start looking for your dentures when you land

Lu could you measure the length of your rear springs (perch to perch)? With the 3" spring the ride height is about 11" and you can get 6" of uptravel. Hopefully that will be a reference point for you so you can decide if you want to try 3" springs.
