g23crawler At this point it would be alot easier to go full hydro but I want to be able to run 75mph. Im going to call PSC and see what they say.
I know its no sports car but I at least want to be able to control it, iv heard alot of stories of full hydro being erratic.

87TPIYJ I only have about 40 miles on mine and only been up to 55mph, but honestly it felt fine driving. I was super paranoid too because I didnt have a seatbelt or cage.

g23crawler So now i'm second guessing myself, after pulling the axle back I realized I could probably pull off a 3 link pan-hard setup with hydro assist. A lot of people say its better on the street but most of those people haven't drove a full hydro rig either. Anyone on here went 4 link full hydro front and regretted it because of road manners (using good quality parts)? I will buy a full kit from PSC either assist or full hydro. A 3 link would save me space but could be more work trying to fit a drag link and track bar up front too. This jeep will see a lot of street so safety and drivability is a huge concern.

g23crawler Ended up moving the front back some last night. In total its 3.5" back from where it was, it looks a lot better in my opinion now.

Ahh ok. With the 14b just off the stock tank the location after just stretching the frame and body it was 108. Which makes since because I added roughly 15 to the frame and body. Then when the rear was linked and GR tank added it was 112. After that the front link netted another 4.5.

g23crawler Here is just some random pics I had on my phone, I can get a better one later. But I only stretched it 4" in the rear, so go with the armor I want and im still running the stock tank. Last pic is with a 42.

87TPIYJ Got a pic of the rear overhang?

I do like it but to me it looks out of proportion compared to the rear that sits inside a fender. I'm still on the fence, I have full hydro. Might as well take advantage of it and push the front out as far as possible.

My fronts are 42.5 eye to eye and the rears are 44.5. So im 5-6" more in the front than you, and 2-3" less in the rear. Those are the numbers I had wrote down anyways so I will need to double check that.

87TPIYJ Whats your overall wheel base again? Unless you are shooting for a certain distance I see no reason not to pull it back. I had to pull mine back because my ******* ordered my front links shorter than I should have. Im sitting at 116.5 I wanted to be at 118



This was with my 40s I have 43s now. Not sure if Im passed the bumper.

g23crawler I'm thinking about pulling my front axle back some, not sure I like how far out there it is. I pushed the jeep up to the wall to see my current approach angle. With the tires touching the wall I have 8" from the wall to front of the frame. I think i'm going to take it 2" back which would still make the front of the tire 6" past the frame. What do you guys think?
