The subframe I built had the outside face even with what used to be the inside face of the original frame.

That is a nice rig there!

Here's a shot where you can see a glimpse of what Blaine is talking about.



Blaine surely built that Jeep to climb.

So I have my bumpstops pretty well dialed. I'm using a 3" bump pad with a 3.5" piece of 1.25" uhmw attached to it on top of the prothane. That gives me 2" of prothane compression before full bump.

I temporarily added a 1" peice of uhmw to the factory bump tower to keep the tires out of fender. I just need to source a poly replacement for the factory foam bumps to replace the peice of uhmw and then I will be set.

With a 3" air gap before the prothane and 2" of compression in the prothane I have 5" of uptravel. I can get 6" by opening up the inner fenders where the tire rubs under the air box and battery.

It has 5pt harnessess IIRC. Jon was using the lap belt. Blaine would not be spotting him unless he was belted in.

Blaine knows the wheelbase since he built it, I'd be guessing.

Not yet. I want to do the TNT inner fenders, but I need to get some kind if come style air intake that will pass smog (k&n CAI etc) and a dry cell battery that can sit at an angle on its side like an optima.

Climblt,

I believe I have a K&N intake for an XJ. I don't know if its the entire setup or what, but I was told it was for an XJ, its just the comb filter, a 3" metal portion that the filter attaches to as well as having a bung for the vacuum line to the valve cover and a a bracket to attach it to somewhere. I does have the K&N sticker and maybe the CARB number. Anyways, I can bring it up from my parents and you can have it if you like. I will be going to my parents next weekend I believe.

Currently looking for:
-Leaf Springs that you want to get rid of.
