Here is a recent picture 3" BDS kit 1.25BL Stock arms, Stock track bar 35" tires. My brake lines were guitar string tight, I just ordered some Currie lowers as my stock arms are falling apart. I'll compare them this upcoming weekend.

bunch of nice flex there guys.

One question for someone who will answer - in some cases the shocks are limiting the jeeps down travel.

Isn't this risky to have the shocks limit the down travel? You could droop down really fast a blow out a shock?


Reason I ask is: i got OME long travel shocks, so right now my shocks can go waaaaay longer than my actual useable flex (I'm losing my front coils when I'm disconnected)..

yes it can damage the shocks. if youre doing jeepspeed or running a stiff spring with very little rebound dampening it would be pretty bad. low speed crawling isnt as bad, but still not good. i dont need longer shocks since my coil was just about unseated. i need limit straps

heres a more recent picture from the same spot:

Not a whole lot of flex, but it'll do
