Whoa! What happened to Mudb8?

since there isn't a similar product out like you are making, and you don't seem to be making any right now... is this teraflex product a good substitution? I really need to remedy this before I swap axles in a few weeks.

Man I bought the Terra upper shock brackets and they seem to work fine. I'm running a 10" travel shock for a 4" lift on 2.5" RCX springs and I have about 4"+ of uptravel using the stock lower mounting location. I think Im gonna relocate the lower mount and go with 12" travel shocks when the Skyjacker Hydros wear or rust out.

Can you post some pics? I'm interested in these but there isn't much for pics of them mounted w shocks installed.

Thanks.

In a word....NO. LoL My camera died when my 4yr old dropped it in a mud hole on a Memorial Day trail ride....I will say that I did have to mod the top of the Skyjacker Shocks so that they would work with the Terra relocatiors. I had to grind the "washer" off the shaft, where the red boot hooks to the end of the shocks' shaft, so that the shocks could move from side to side and not connect the bracket. I ground all the "washer" thing off. I may have some pics somewhere of just the shocks and terra bracket before I installed them though....I'll c if I can find them.

I want your factory 07-up take-off/thrown out JK front/rear Lower Control Arms! Bent ones are perfect also as long as the bushings and cold cut rings are in good shape/useable

Glad to see you back Mud!!! Xj's go good man. Cant wait to see what you can cook up for one of those.

rs4race here you go. I found these saved on my computer from when I did my frame swap. You can see how the Terra brackets mount up through the rear cross member. You also catch a glimse of my little Jeep Tech in training!!!! My life would be very dull without him!!

perfect pic of the tera mounts....

to be honest, I can't stand the xj's, they ride like tanks and have no flex in the rear, I can get evey bit the same flex from the front as the TJ if I remove the fenders, but the leafs will only fall so far with what unsprung weight it has pulling on the springs... here's a perfect example.








I have 14" travel shocks on all four corners of the toy, long chevy springs... and people brag about all the flex their yota's have...LOL

MY TJ has/had 2.5" rancho coils, 12" front shocks and 13" rear shocks in that pic, not to mention the shorter wheelbase... anyone who's thinking your RE 5.5" long arm will drive up on that rock without almost tipping over, or ANY out out of the box suspension kit you can buy.... you're very very wrong, it will not. BTW that rock is much taller than it looks..

Mud put a 4 link in the rear of that Xj. So is it a 2 door or 4 door? Auto or 5 speed?

How can I get a set of weld-ons for my D35? It'd be a nice setup till I go 8.8 and a bit more serious.

I want the these rancho shocks to work on my 2.5" lift http://www.summitracing.com/parts/RA...9340/?rtype=10
