Back at my apartment now.
Here's what I'm planning to do. Keep in mind this is in the VERY distant future.
Axle: 8.8, ARB, chromos, ECGS swap kit.
Front suspension: MC 3.5" or currie 3" coils, MC or currie TB, Antirock, unsure of shocks.
Rear suspension: BTF crossmember, outboarded shocks, and OME XJ leafs. Yes, you read that right.
Others: Genright comp tank, 35" falken WP MT, maybe spyderlocks.
The reason this really caught my eye is because it seems like an easy(er) and more cost effective way to stretch ~5-7" vs. a typical mid-arm link set up. I would be doing SUA, and try to get about 3-4" of lift. That with my body will be perfect for 35s.
"What about the belly Ty? Your jeep is still fat and ugly."
Yes, but I haven't gotten hung up on it yet. Over this period of waiting I will see if and when I do hit it, and how much of a tuck I think I will need. I do plan on a JB SSSYE, and with the driveshaft having to be quite a few inches longer, I shouldn't have any problems throwing a belly skid on when I decide its necessary.
"But Ty you can't weld."
I know that, *******.
This summer I will be practicing my welding. A couple projects off the top of my head I'm going to try are: building a squat rack, building a thing to hold all of the weight plates, and maybe even a cheap car I can mess around with.
I am open and welcome a link vs. leaf debate, but I do NOT want this to have any bashing whatsoever.
