Alright... I'm trying to figure something out. You're rear suspension... Are you on coils with a single leaf still there to locate your axle rather then using control arms? How's it not wrap up the axle? Do you have a traction bar or something on it too?

Yes there is a traction bar on the rear. It works but its time to step up to 4 link soon. Next week it gets re worked for a rear seat (for the kids), a dash, body panels and a few other small things. In a few weeks after that 4 link.

Makes sense! Keeping the existing coils or changing out to something different there also along with the links?

I'm interested to see how the back seat works out. None of the pics above are really good angles but it sure looks like there's not a whole lot going on behind your front seats space wise! Funny how these rides are never ending projects!

Looks like a cool ride though either way and from the description in your signature it sounds like it's got the major strength parts covered nicely!

Man, I would be willing to go anytime, well...unless I'm working. Is there anything I can wheel with a '99 TJ with RE 4.5" on 33" BFG MTs? Awesome pics, looks like great wheeling.

Just come in the back side and play dumb. I am really good at playing dumb... at least I think I am playing.


You can get to that area from Kyle canyon or the end of Tropical. There are not signs everywhere, so as long as you are not dumping stuff or being an arse, you should not have any issues.

I did that at nellis once, but I really didn't want to drive onto a shooting range.

Can you give some more details about how to get to this area? I have seen this area from Summerlin but every way I have tried to get in to that area there are signs that say no trespassing or they are physically blocked off by big boulders.
