Going to add these to the front of the frame on this build. I want the adjustability for the future. I have been looking at these for a while.

Pictures off Ballistics FB page.

I could really dig that, if they actually ship. And if they don't stick out so far that they **** up your tire.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Ballistic makes some cool stuff or atleast pretends they do. Now if their customer service and delivery times are as good as their products, they might have a change of staying in business. Personally they are the absolute last place to by any parts from

Found a couple good pictures of a similar Jeep today. Getting ready to start working on this Jeep again. Metal for the frame has been ordered. And I have everything to build the front and rear suspensions.

I like it. The only thing that bugs me is the bed looks too far back from the cab. The gap makes it look out of place

Guess i am going to build the front suspension around a set of stock JK front springs.

Anyone have a pair laying around?

I may be in the minority here, but something looks "not quite right" with that Jeep truck. I think it (and yours) needs a custom "roll bar" in the bed that matches the lines of the cab cage. That way the lines flow whether the top is up or down. Looks like a pretty big gap between cab and bed too.

Or maybe its the soft top that's throwing me off. I think a hardtop would look Bueno.

What's wrong with those pics it that the proportions are wrong, cab is to long and bed to short it that Jeep's frame was stretched about a foot and a half it would look much better.
