Is this article available online? I'd be really interested.

i know i am new to the forum, but damn dude, i bet you're banned soon.







if you dont mind me asking, what do you have into th whole setup as far as parts go?


i know it was mentioned earlier, i dont know if it was responded to, but how does all that extra linkage respond to rocks and such? seems like it could get beat up pretty good. your rig is one of the best looking i've seen here. very understated.

The long arm brackets hang no lower than the factory gas tank does, so if I'm tearing up the new brackets I'm likely doing more damage than just to the new brackets. I don't think there will be a problem.

I chose the products I wanted on the Jeep, and then had Impulse Off Road in St. George, UT do the work for me. They gave me a great price on everything, including parts and labor. The quality of the workmanship is also better than other shops I've used in the past. Total cost for everything was $42K. That includes a brand new 2010 Rubicon with every option including leather seats, the suspension, Pro Rock 44 axle, chromolly shafts, 5.38 gears, driveshafts, tires, bumpers, winch, labor charges for installation, sales tax, and even a spare power steering pump and spare steering box.

Dont mind him man... He is a troll... Just hang in there for the first few months and you will realize who to listen to and who to block.... Good luck with your Jeep, and happy trails

Sweet looking JK. I like the thought and insight you put into building it. Alot of what you said is great information for me. I have a 2Dr, 6-speed Sport and looking into building a similar rig. Like you mine will be a daily driver with off-road exploring, not so much rock climbing. So your info was informative for me. Never considered a long arm with such a small lift, but now you've got me thinking. Thanks, and again sweet rig.
