Jeep ran awesome this weekend. Had little to no bump steer. Everything was tight. I really noticed the stiffness the frame plates and cage added. It drives like one car again.

I went through three different spring rates before settling on 300 over 450. I don't have my dual rate kit set up yet so it was only one rate throughout the travel. I never bottomed and did get air born. It came down smooth. Only knew I was in the air by the floating feeling.

Noticed a huge amount of dust with out rear door... Duh... So I will need to build wall so keep it out. I have video of the jeep in action so I will post that later

Yes. I could have got away with 12 inch but wanted a little extra shock shaft at bump and droop. I'm strapped between 14 and 15 inches due to steering clearance.

Ok. I've been thinking 16s for mine since I'm going through the wheel wells and possibly the hood.

Are you going solid axle? The ttb suck up way further than I could have done with solid axle. I'm also very low. It sits just below where my teraflex la 4" kit had it sitting.

Ive looked a a couple different flare options. Our approach has always been function over looks for obvious reasons, so flares always keep getting pushed down the list. As the wall of mud was flying past my window last weekend I was thinking it would be nice to have better fenders.
