What setup is on her CJ that it can tilt back, 'cuz that looks like some serious rubber there. 1st post says 4" & 35s? Shackles look stock & I don't see a body lift. No SOA? Am I right? Thanks for any help and specs you can share.
Keep the pics coming. You should be VERY proud of your fab work!
Btw, you guys w/wives that can't drive stick? You don't t know how lucky you are. My wife will have her little bag of Potpourri hanging from the reavriew! And she has a lead foot too. That last part helps when buying speed parts! Either way though, we are all blessed w/women that put up w/this money hole hobby.
Hers has a 4" SUA lift and 35's old Mickey claws first edition. They do rub if the tires are turned some when trying to lift the front up. Wheels have to be straight and then they don't rub at all when lifting up the front end. The suspension lift was already on their and is fairly new so it doesn't flex well at all. I believe it's superlift brand. Rear shocks were missing upper bushings so haven't decided what I'm doing on rear shocks yet.
She can drive a stick but mine has to much power for her so I lucked out getting her own cj to drive. She has helped me some too. She sanded down the roll bar and helped me install it. She helped me hold the upper shock mount while I tacked it in place. She wants to help more but knows she can't on some things.
