Same shocks im running in the rear of mine. The 255/70 was harsh, they do much better up front with the weight of the engine and a winch :cheers2:

Nice tow rig! Is it a Duramax? Is the trailer new too? I'm gonna be picking up a car hauler pretty soon and retiring my old trailer to strictly work duty.

My Crown springs look about the same but still function well.

Full hydro?

Man, I have fewer and fewer excuses not to stretch mine too. It would be nice to have a back seat again.

Looking great man. When I first saw the Motobilt kit I didn't care for how low it puts the skid plate but I guess the lower link brackets are going to hang down that low anyway. And now it can slide seemlessly instead of getting hung up on the rear lower link brackets like I do.

Is that the Swag press brake kit? Look forward to seeing how well it works.

Progress is looking great. You are giving me motivation to get going on mine.

Sorry if you mentioned it already but what length ORIs are you going with?

Man those custom links look sweet.

Are you going to raise your ride height much over what it was with flat springs? I started doing a little measuring and as I sit it is going to be hard to stuff 12" ORIs up front and 14s in the rear. I will need to come up an inch or 2 to fit 37s and even more if I go bigger so that will open up some real estate. I was hoping to do 14" or 16" all around.

Are you planning to leave the front frame section alone?

I'll have plenty more questions when you get the front mocked up :cheers2:

Are you planning to put your front upper link mount on the driver or passenger side? Are you going to run an over-the-engine brace?

I read something about how you are not supposed to cycle ORIs without nitrogen in them because it does something to the shock oil. Have you heard anything about that?

I'm paying close attention to you and @'92 vegas YJ Our suspension designs are all different but watching you guys helps fill in some blanks for me. A rear single triangulated 4 link was one thing, but now that I have a track bar and steering etc (along with a V8) it gets a little more complicated, as you know.

Couple of questions: what is the distance between your lower shock mounts? And/or the distance between the inner Cs?

Also, do you still have your hydro assist setup hanging out?

Looking good buddy. Time to get some air in those shocks! If you leave on Tuesday you can meet us in Moab on Thursday...

Looking good buddy. Those rockers and exhaust turned out nice. We need pics of the tires front vs rear. I want to see the warp :D
