No modification, 100% unmolested and I removed the top spacer from under the upper bump stop to dial in more up travel. We'll see if the fenders and flares like it much.

At full bump first contact, we have 1" of shock shaft showing to account for articulation pivot and dynamic compression. Lifting further to raise the front of the rig off the ground, the bump stops compress 1/4".

The Jeep is very close to being done... waiting on the rear Fox shocks and then its good to go. Figured I would show off a few quick pix of how it turned out.... probably one of the nicer HP30's out there.

Clamshell trussed and 3 linked HP30
New Spicer Ball Joints
Rebuilt CTM u-joints sitting in Warn 27spline Chromo shafts
ARB/Dana 4:56 gear set
Full PSC kit including box, pump, ram and reservoir
Currie/SavvySteering
Tie rod flip
Currie Trackbar
New Currie springs
New Wayne Tuned Fox Shocks
New upper shock mounts
New 35x12.50/15 MTR kevlars on all 4 corners

Also.... wanted to show off the no body lift body lift. My old mounts were pretty mangled and taking advantage of a Genrite kit allowed Blaine to get rid of the body lift pucks while also increasing clearance by raising the mount on the frame.

Happy Happy.... its been a year in the making and now, no more crossover steering bumpsteer nonsense. Thanx Blaine!!!!

do I spy a little external sleeve on the long side tube?

....I did that on my HP D30 a few years ago. Works great & doesn't sacrifice uptravel.

Stock bolt from Currie and there is a very good reason for the length.

Correct... Since the upper is no longer used Blaine went ahead and clamshelled it for me. I was surprised LOL.

IIRC, when I clamshelled mine he said it was useless & a waste of time
