nice work, I like the tube highlines too.

what is the wheel backspacing you have..?

I'm assuming the shocks are 29 or 30" fully extended for 13" of travel....?

how much better does it handle on the hwy with the trac bar level? I figure it must be close to level anyhow from loweing one side and raising the axle end.....

Good looking rig and LCG is the way to go for all around trail and rock climbing. Im impressed with the workmanship on the installed mods, well thought out and executed. Hoe come you decided to skip the shock boots?

The reason I did this was to prevent the suspension from binding at full flex.
As the track bar drops down (creating an arc) it's pulling the axle over to the pass side on the rear. As far as handling on highway not sure it made any diff

The mid arms are so much smoother ride than short arms, oh the adj shocks are a plus turn them down on the street and max them out on the trail.

I am seriously thinking about going back to 33" tires to get the crawl ratio back with my 4.88 gears. 35" tires and 5.13 would be nice.

Not sure what back spacing I have. The wheels were on the jeep when I purchased it.

thanks, I'm not fond of my 4.88's either w/the 34's, I'm putting in 5.13's when I get the time. If I could use the stock rubi carrier with 5.38's I'd do that instead.

Looks like you could use an oil pan skid on there too.

I don't think it would look as good with 33" tires on it considering you have done the highline fenders. Kind of seems like a lot of that work to properly clear the 35s would have just been wasted. Stick with the 35s

I'm thinking about trimming my flares with my 33's to get a similar look and more room to flex. That rig looks great!

I take it you fabricated the front and rear shock mounts? Some pics of the rear shock setup would be nice.

You've got a great rig.

The shock mounts are the ford shock towers front and rear.
The shock mounts at the axle is just some channel iron with a hole drilled for the shock stud. I also added a 1/4" square washer to give the shock mounting surface more thickness.

I trimmed above the control arm for more clearance.

REAR

Made them from some old directional boring rods.
The ditch rods are 1026 DOM.

I used OEM rubber joints at the frame and 1 1/4" JJ at the axle.
The measurements I posted for the lengths are not correct. I was guessing on the lengths when I posted them.
