Looks rad Garza!!! I actually like the fact that from the exterior it really doesn't look that insanely built cause most of the details are all hidden underneath. I'm really curious to see the coils do their thing up front!

Curious, how long has it been in Cali under the knife?

I picked up this jack at the beginning of summer when my old harbor freight jack failed that my dad actually bought sometime when I was still in school. It's probably 20 years old at this point and finally failed.

http://www.harborfreight.com/floor-j...eel-68049.html

Anyways, I picked up that one cause of the minimum height and the max height. It's 1/2" less then the 4 ton one but has a 2" shorter minimum. At the time I still had my lowered car in the driveway. I'll say, I'm only a summers worth of use on it but I'm very happy with it so far!

Hey marn, not sure if I've ever shown you this video. It's my benchmark for the race truck only we have more shock and more motor... But main reason for showing it is watch the first 45 seconds to see what a leaf sprung setup working at it's prime is capable of!!! Just think if all four corners of yours worked like that!

If you don't quit posting those videos I'm going to have another expensive interest. A while back I posted a comment about coils compared to leafs. You set me straight on that. I had no idea the market on correctly designed leaf springs. If I can keep my truck reliable for a bit a pair of leafs may be in the future.

It has been 11 months. Initially dropped off to do the auto trans swap and fix my steering. Then turned into a full blown rebuild. The axles are stupid big for 37"s but I love them. The coil thing is an experiment and if it doesn't work out, I can remove the inner coil and just use the Currie springs. I drove it some today and it soaks up anything on the road. First impression on dirt is good, I will need a ton of seat time and then I will meet up with the shock tuner and go from there. The shocks already have a custom valving, but I'm sure as I get more comfortable driving it, things will change.

Oh and BTW.....for you guys who drive on road 99% with your rig, I highly suggest the Falken Wildpeaks I'm running. My 37"s on beadlocks NOT balanced are smooth as glass at 70mph. They are proven in the desert on race rigs with the same off the shelf compound. They work great on slick rock, and I will report after some seat time in the jagged stuff. My buddy just put a set on his Chevy 2500HD and loves them on the washboard roads he takes when he takes his dirt bike out.

I have them on my wifes 2wd Commander, they ride well and were like iron. Wet traction is better then ANY other tire i have ever had. Also one of the guys on Warmachines has them on his JK and he like them too.

Garza, I am sure you are running some type of custom suspension under that rig. Can you give us the details?

Jeep looks awesome. What front shock mount are you using to mount the foxs? Where did you get it?
