I set the axle in place today, took some measurements and did some thinking. i'm going to stretch the rear back 4-5 inches so I'm pretty psyched about that. if i have to buy axle brackets anyways i might as well 4-link it and be done with it.

this is going to be a long build

haha, thanks its a little intimidating, a lot of loose ends but I watched about 3 hours of xtreme 4x4 today so I'm feeling pretty good about it...that show has a way of making things appear a little easier then I've found them to be. Just take the plunge!

Yeah it's about ride height, I know the axle will swing in an arc so I'm thinking that I'm going to set the suspension up at full bump. I'm still a ways from this but I just wanted to get an idea as to whether or not it would be worth my time to stretch / 4-link it...if I had no chance of stretching it I may have just gone forward with a drop in tj bracket kit from artec or ballistic. Very happy to see I have more room back there then I previously thought.

Selling my JKS rear trackbar and my savvy ultimate steering in the suspension section of the classifieds. Never even used either off-road . 100 miles or less on road. Just empty every pocket

Still selling my 31 spline Detroit for my 9" as well as my 5 TJ rubicon wheels and 33" old style MTRs with 40% tread or better.

Thanks Curt! Yeah I can't wait to get then cleaned up. I've spent all night packing up my savvy steering and rear track bar for shipping tomorrow. Thinking a lot about going with a grizzly locker instead of a Detroit in the rear.

Raceline Monsters are just badass. I still love mine, and still hardly believe I own a set.
