I'm proud to say the OE intake from my very first jeep found a more suitable home than the floor of my barn

I have one I can compare to, just have not had time. Thanks.

As for all you guys I did not quote. Thanks so much. For all the contributions to the build. I could not have done it without you guys. You all are on the list.

As for the build. Almost 300 miles logged on the OD since I started driving her. She is doing great other than the things I have posted already. I have to save up for the new axle shafts,going to pull out the next to longest leaf out of the pack to maybe see if she rides a little better, finish the cage this weekend along with the rear inner fenders. Then I need to work on the front inner fenders, going to make them out of aluminium and order a PSC battery relocation bracket. The cage is going to be painted the same gray thats on the wheels.

Aren't they retarded heavy as well?

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Most tires are heavy, especially anything over a 33. I am over it, I am just keeping the 37s.

Drove the Jeep today with no shocks in the rear. The rear feels the same as the front soft, now the question is..... The front to soft and the rear to stiff causing the harshness in the ride? Do I stiffen the front up a tiny bit? And soften the rear to make them equal? I know I am going to send the shocks out to Wayne at Alltech, he can soften the shocks, but I need to get the springs equal front and rear.

Do you like the softer ride?

I think I would wait until you have the bed together and cage etc.. before trying to dial the dampening in.

Not as soft without shocks, but somewhere in between will be real nice.

Just don't want it to knock my teeth out or bruise my kidneys when I cross a smooth railroad crossing.

A shock tune should be the last thing you do. It's an important step, but if you are still adding weight to the car, I would wait.

True, but for now I NEED to get it close. It's killing me as it is. This is my ONLY transportation at the moment.

I feel your pain. My light rear is too light for my bilstiens 255/70. So I am going with a lighter valving.

Try adding a bunch of weight to the rear and just see if it softens it up, then you know what you should do as far as adjustments. The front could be too soft, but the rear seems to be set for a heavier body on the back. Which gives you the kick.

Any chance you know the valving?
