Drooping suspension? Sounds like something on an old woman

Some bigger jack stands and a real floor jack would fix that. With a 4" suspension lift I can easily put the frame on jackstands and droop the suspension. That's without tires of course, which I can't see why you would need them on in that situation anyway.

But to each his own.

Uh, even with 6 ton jack/stands I still have to crank it most of the way before it even starts lifting. From the ground to my "frame" rail it's about 24 inches.

Pretty sure my jackstands are 6 ton as well, and I'm somewhere over 20 couple inches at the frame. Lifting from the axles and placing the jack stands under the frame just behind/in front of the control arm brackets I can let both axles droop as far as they can go. But that's on a TJ, YMMV with an XJ; I have no idea.

Regardless, I wouldn't use a widow maker anytime I don't have to.

Be careful, I would let fresh spray paint cure longer before ML

It's funny you should say that. I thought I was paying $100 for something more than paint.

Rust prevention was my intended goal. Tell me... how would you prevent rust on raw steel rock sliders? Just leave them bare?

The powder coating on my rock rails on my TJ held up just fine to repeated use of my Hi-Lift jack (but got scratched to hell in rock gardens, of course ). As for the earlier comment that the same would happen on my front bumper: I've often jacked it up by the powdercoated front bumper with no ill effects.

Sure. If the epoxy primer had been available in smaller quantities, I definitely would've paid for it. But that's the whole reason I posted in here and asked you what to use on my raw steel sliders. Your response:

Bingo. Swapping out suspension components in my garage, and I don't have a floor jack. I use the Hi-Lift to get it up on a jack stand.

I don't mean to be a downer: I think the Monstaliner is a great product. It looks fantastic, it's relatively easy to apply, and the texture is great. I just hope nobody else buys it hoping/expecting that it'll be every bit as tough as powdercoating (or even Line-X). If I were lining my Jeep tub, I'd go with Monstaliner again no questions asked. But for anything that is expected to stand up to physical contact and lots of force, I wouldn't use the same product. If the consensus is that my expectations were unreasonable, that's fine... I just hope we can do a better job of helping n00bs in this thread set reasonable expectations in the future.

Hey Eric,
I'm going to be spraying my YJ next weekend with the Dark Burnt Orange.

How much should I thin each gallon for spaying? With MEK?

What are the recommended settings for the Walcom Shutz gun?

Any other advice you can give me before I spray?

Everything has been coated with CS and I'm in the process of scuffing it all down again now. I will be cleaning and wiping everything with MEK before I start to spray.

Is it a Bren cutter? I have been using one for 20 years and it still cuts like it's new. Pm me if you need any help with it or the program.
