Didn't know that about the LP. Pretty sure that Khris was responding to me with the D35. I can break those pulling into my driveway! LOL

Hell i see a kid in WM702 who is running 37's on a 30/44 combo. 4:88's ARB cromo shafts. This is on a TJ. I cant aford to just buy a full axle at this point, how ever buying parts to help out on the trail will. If i know i have a weak link in the drivetrain rhin i know to take it easy and think more ahead of where i am puting my tires and be easy on the gas. Having the strongest parts from the getgo wont teach me how to wheel with a light foot and forethought. That being said, will you guys help me out finding deals ?

Have you unbolted your shocks and checked to see if they're actually limiting your droop travel? You should be able to check bump with a tape measure to make sure they are actually letting your springs bottom out into the bumpstop before they're completely compressed. Personally I'd check to see how much more travel your leafs gain without the shocks installed to see potentially how much you'd gain and then decide if it's worth it.

Not that I wanted more people to die, but I was hoping for this whole thing in Big Bear to play out a little longer. The guy was a Navy reserves officer and the media made it out like he was a rouge seal team commander. Oh well, until the next guy goes crazy, at least they can't blame it on the gun laws because Cali has the strictest around.

I know my current shocks limit my droop but not sure by how much. I can jack my front end up and watch it hang on my shocks. When I get some time I'll take the shocks off and measure.

Personally, that's what I would do to decide if it's actually worth it. I mean if your shocks are only limiting the droop by like half an inch is it worth it? While you have the shocks off and it's all the way extended check to make sure your slip joint in the front driveshaft still has enough engagement, spin the front wheels and make sure your ujoints aren't binding. Also you probably want to turn your steering from lock to lock to make sure nothing is binding up on the tie rods or in that system too. Just double check basically that allowing the front to droop that extra bit isn't going to cause other issues by over extending something else related... Just cause the kit exists to allow you to run the parts doesn't 100% mean your jeep will allow it. I would imagine it would probably take an hour or so to pull the shocks and check everything and it's probably worth it before pulling the trigger.

For sure. The price is pretty steep so if I can't get at least another inch or two it's not worth it to me. Besides the kit I still have to purchase new shocks too. All said and done I'm looking at around $500 give or take a little or a lot. Lol
