but if you really want to build a tall jeep that is stable and flexes well, outboarding your shocks is a must, keeps stability nice, along with a stiffer rear swaybar like the antirock or genright bar. fox, king, ORI, bilstein, all make good shocks/struts you really cant go wrong with any of em. you also have to take into account when building a jeep that tall with this short of a wheelbase and an 8.8 you will be running into driveshaft angles that you may not find to your liking

You keep talking about flex like it's the most important factor. It takes a lot more than too tall lift springs and shocks. Build smart not tall.

Definitely read some more before tackling this dude.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Wow this thread keeps getting better and better every time I open it. I mean that in the most sarcastic way possible.

Alex he'd like to buy a Clue for $150

Good thing it's "Hump Day"

Put down the keyboard and walk away slowly.

You know I posted this for help finding a kit. Well then I decided to build one. I'm asking for ideas and opinions on what I should do. If I wanted to hear someone run there mouth I would have just talked to my girlfriend instead. Either help me out (which I will very well appreciate) or shut your cock suckers. Simple as that A lot of people can run there mouth behind a keyboard but I doubt any of them will come out from behind it. Lol. And I'm not on here to start trouble like some people are. I'm asking for advice. Help or gtfo .

Not a thing. I do like the idea of long arms better though. I eventually plan to run 38s and i just don't want a super steep control arm angle. This jeep I'm building right now is my DD and weekend wheeler. So I need something that rides good on and offroad. The tires aren't going to kill me because i don't travel far. I just don't want something that's gonna jar my head off of my shoulders.
