When I maxed out my suspension to measure for shocks I had 9" of difference between fully compressed and full droop. I would recommend a good shock. I went with RS9000 so i could dial it in for hwy or trail. I think I am set at 7 for the road and if I soften them all the way it gets a little scary on the road. Just my .2
I was leaning towards a bilstien shock but the adjustable ranchos are nice, I have a couple extra sway bars laying around that I could use if necessary.

This is a TDK frame:
I might build that into my frame, mine will also be a 2x4 boxed frame all through out and saving money is always a plus

Thanks for the suggestions all are still welcomed and probably needed. I will be placing a few orders tonight (The leafs, perches and maybe tires). Has anyone ever ordered from onlinetires.com? I researched them and found mixed reviews just wondering?

The Bilsteins are nice shocks but BDS teamed up with Fox racing to tune a set of shocks for the specific spring rate.



I got mine from JeepAddOnsChris in the vendor section for under $100 each to my door. Seems a little steep but totally worth the ride quality on and off road. I use my jeep as my daily driver and weekend beater. I am comfortable all the time.

I changed my mind at the last minute on the Bds springs because the shipping cost was too high. Since there is no dealer in my area I would have had to pay 150 dollars for shipping. I ordered 2 Rubicon Express RE1454 and 2 Rubicon Express RE1455 They were about 150 dollars a piece but had free shipping. I still might look into those shocks because I have heard a lot about fox products. What kind of wheeling do you do on the weekends?
Edit- Do you think I will need a cv driveshaft?

I think a cv shaft is always a good idea. The rubicon express springs are great and I run them up front with the BDS/fox shocks.

And I have an affinity for rocks.



And daily driving.

Thanks for the picture, I have some of the same terrain up here so its good to know that the setup is capable before I get it on the trail. I think that I will get the cv shaft, luckily with the dana 18 I don't need a SYE so that saved some money.
