I'd like to know the frame height on that yellow TJ.

You're so damn low.

Going to go wheeling at the badlands as soon as it warms up enough to camp out. I am in need of some liquid therapy around a camp fire.

Mine probably sits at about the same height as the yellow one.....Hendrix's is definitely a couple inches lower.

Haha that's low bro. I think I would have to tighten up my sway bars to the max and sling that thing all over town.

Yep, same height as the yellow one.

Johnboy needs a low rig. He's low to the ground himself.

Got the front sway bar at about half and the rear does not have one, although I have been looking at options for it. If I had some lower gears it would be way more fun to sling around. :grinpimp:

Exactly why I built it low with good amount of uptravel. I hate jumping to get in a rig 3-4 times a day. The side bolsters on the seats are bad enough. Which has me thinking about the MasterCraft RS with reclining backs to get to my in cab tool box easier.

Thanks, just a little update for you guys.


I have been driving her 50-60 miles a day for almost 2 months. Other than the little problem with the ride quality and the alternator going out 2 days after she left the garage she is doing great. One finger on the wheel at 75 on the interstate. Local driving is not that bad either, excited to get some 5:13 gears installed. I can't figure out why Jeep never put the AW4 in a TJ it's got to be the best shifting trans ever.

Wow! I was going to post a guess of 18 but I came too late. Would have been wrong anyway. I'd like to see it crawl something crazy.
