They reach full compression at factory bump with 33" tires installed?
Yes. That's what the picture was of. If you don't believe me there is an old post by mudb8 who also said you can run N66 on a 2" BB with no BS extension

They rub the flares a bit, but I can fix that. They don't rub the inner fender though. I was asking for advice on my planned setup, not my current one...

Is the frame entirely elevated on jack stands? I only see one. Is opposite side hanging at full shock extension.

The shocks and BB aren't your limit. It's the 33" tires at full flex that will scrape the fenders.

Our front ends are too similar to be that different. My bumps are about as short as they can be.

For what you are planning, you need to make sure you can correctly identify your interferences. Again, something isn't adding up or I'm not seeing something on yours.

It's about two inches from full droop on the other side as I ran out of room in the garage. I still had about 1/2" between inner fender and the top of the tire. Pretty sure they are gonna clear.

I know how to identify my interferences.

Anyone else have any insight on my plans. I think I've worked almost all of the kinks out

So assuming my numbers are right and at 3.5" of lift with the 19.5" compressed length shock, would running that shock at 7.5 up and 5.25 down be too far out of balance, or would it be alright?

What about running that same shock at my current 1" of lift with the extended shock mounts with it at a ride height 24.5 with 5" up and 7.5 down? I know I couldn't use all that down travel currently as my arms would be the limiting factor, I would only do this to get some of the work done sooner if it wouldnt have any I'll effects

i'd like to see the 7.5" of uptravel in a real world scenario, just dont think it will be that easy without lots of other interferance

I know it seems really high, but I don't know what I'm missing. I feel like there's something really obvious. Right now I can stuff the 33s and factory bump, the steering doesn't interfere at factory bump, and the MC track bar I want to run is also supposed to clear at full bump. What am I missing

The bolt part, aka executing it. You're gonna get 11", not 13".

how much uptravel do you currently have?

did you check clearances with the coils removed?

About 4.5" to 5" uptravel. I removed the drivers side and dropped the the passenger side as much as I could manage in my tight garage. Maybe I missed something, but right now everything is stock up front except the BB, tires and shocks. I believe the bend in the ZJ tie rod will give me a tad more clearance and I've seen pictures of the MC track bar at full bump with the ZJ tie rod and it cleared

Does it not make sense that right now at 1" lift over stock I have about 5" up travel, if I were to go to 3.5" lift over stock and have the same tires and no BS extension that I'd have the possibility for 7.5" of up travel?

i believe your frame will be the limiting factor. but i have not done this myself.

i would think your steering would contact the passenger frame rail when stuffing the passenger side and drooping the drivers side, if you did get to 7.5" of uptravel.

Even if it is the stock drag link and a ZJ tie rod? I know the tie rod will be bigger than stock, but even though it is 7.5" of up travel, it would still be reaching only the factory bump. Would the Jeep not have been built to withstand full bump on either side with stock steering from the factory? It just seems like if there was interference like that with the stock setup at full bump, they would've changed something or extended the factory BS lengths to avoid the interference
