Posting to follow. I want to see more of Blaine's work in progress. We often get to see the finished product, but not so often the in progress shots.

Thread crawled, can't wait to see more innovative stuff from Blaine.

Why does the name Robert Yates sound so familiar?

and crawled!

Have you gentlemen considered running the upper on the passenger side? I switched mine from the driver side to passenger side just to see if there was a noticeable difference. Conclusion, not really... either way works great but it did free up some room over the diff which on my rig is very important.

btw, you guys realize that it is possible to subscribe to a thread without posting "subscribed"

I'm pretty good at aiming the arm's path throughout the suspension cycle and since I'm building a mini-truss over the diff, I'm in charge of the arm placement. On a rig like Jon's, I aimed his to clear everything and the upper was tight to the top of the diff and still ran up high enough to just kiss the bottom of the motor mount bracket on the frame at full stuff. Does one really need to go any higher?

As to why, I don't like messing around with the exhaust to mount the upper on that side, plus the motor is shifted to the passenger side and sometimes that extra bit of clearance makes all the difference.

Subscribed. Yeah, what's going on with that tank you're taking out? If you need to give it a good home...

Here's your challenge for the day. Learn what radius rod suspension is and why it would or would not be a good thing on the front of an over height TJ.
