Not really. The front is stretched two inches. Over the next few weeks I am making a 4-link for the rear and throwing some tons under it.

if you look on his profile you'll see that they're 15x10 street locks, probably cragar or procomp, usually 3.75 or 4" backspacing....

GREAT link! Thank you! Totally helps me understand why my shop steered me away from 5.5" to 4.5" springs. They're building what they call the "Industrial LCOG" and putting that on the windshield to make people stop me and ask "what does that mean?". That link and thread will allow me to give a FAR more knowledgeable answer.

Just an update of the way mine is currently sitting. No height added. I will probably be removing the BB soon.

I have to say I am glad I stumbled across this forum today. Work was slow, so I was able to read through all the posts. I am running pretty similar to you guys with 2.5 lift and 35s. I have custom front tube fenders and chopped the hood a little. My stock control arm bushings are starting to get pretty sad, so I have been researching what I want to do next. I do use this as a daily driver when the weather is bad and I can't drive the classic. I would like to increase my down travel and keep the height about the same. I plan to add some armor for protection at a later date. Below are some pics of my rig. Let me know if you have any suggestions.






There are a few more here.

Sharp rigs here!

I'm pretty happy with my LCOG build, but after viewing some of the ones on here, it makes me want to get OME 2.5 springs and high clearance tube fenders.

The only issue with that would be keeping good clearance under my belly pan.


Mine is on 3.5" springs and 37" Pitbull Rockers.

I think I'm on of the few who thinks 35's are just too big of a tire for the TJs and YJs. On LJs and 4 door JKs with the longer wheel base it looks awesome, but with the shorter wheel base it just looks strange to me
