Hey Bro Montana - trying to come up with a few different (inexpensive) ideas for mounting 12" travel fox smooth body's in the rear, while retaining my 4" currie rear coils. Will likely convert to coilover rear through the tub, down the line, but not yet.

Ideas?

Sorry, never saw this...probably 12-15mph or so? Not super fast, but it was enough to total the Nissan

The Currie axle bracket kit lets you adjust where you mount the shock on the axle.

Please take your time. I just ordered a 2103 JKUR, but blew any mod money I might have on Savvy parts for my LJ the last year or two.

Yes, I made sure to get 4.10's. I still need to call you about getting an under armor crossmember for Dale's Hemi LJ.

Here's a cool product for your JK. The Solution by FMF. The cool thing about this product is it allows you to maintain your one way vent. With a soft top it's no big deal but with a hard top it is as you get your ears blasted every time you slam the doors if you cover the vent.

You'll notice the small holes at the bottom so the air can vent. It is a stamped aluminum piece that I was thinking of making but no need to as Andrew from FMF got it done.

Finally got around to mounting switches for the rear ARB locker. I probably should have just called John the Spod Guy and got a switch panel and a power distribution kit but I had already cut the panel so this is how it turns out. Wheeled the Rubicon without a rear locker and other runs but since I'm headed to Moab for Easter Jeep and plan to wheel with the big boys I thought I'd better get an operational rear locker. The front has a Detroit and has been ultra reliable and is how all of my Jeeps are setup. Even the KOH LJ runs a Detroit front and ARB rear.

Was able to finally track down and fix the vibe that I thought was the front drive shaft turned out to be the rear pinion angle.

Hey, you're alive...

I have sent you a few emails on various parts, but never heard back so I ordered elsewhere.

Still need a quote on the 8 lug racelines, if you have the email with part number.

Mike,

Let me check if I can find your email! Resend it and I'll get that quote right to you. Sorry for the delay!

Thanks,

Gerald

How are the tube add ons to the rubi sliders holding up? Are they durable enough to be used as a step?


Edit: concerned about the strength of the tabs that mount to the body when you add leverage to them

As strong or stronger than most aftermarket sliders that attach to the paper thin body panels. John Currie and many others have been running these since 2008 with no problems. Good step as well. In fact we were at Sand Hollow doing a photo shoot today and I watch the sliders do their job very well.

Very nice. Yea I saw the picture that you put up on Facebook. It looks like the red Currie 4 door doesn't have the railing added on
