    Not going to happen as my wheels are under someone else's truck!
    I'm not off again until Monday either, but as long as its on it's own weight on jack stands I'm happy as progress is progress!

    On that note I just ordered my 2.0" remote reservoir dual rate FOA coilovers and complete gear/locker setup from Ski @ CTMotorsports today!
    I didn't want to drop the $$$ on COs but Ski gave me an awesome price! I also figure it will perform better and be 100x easier than trying to molest coils/shocks onto that short-side 60 tube. It'll cost twice as much as the coils/shocks so it's not horrible!

    Excuses, Excuses, if you'd bought the rims and tires complete you'd be able to have it on rubber! Although hubs and brakes might help Good to hear about the FOA's, that'll be a huge relief!

    So progress was the name of the game today!
    Finished up the frame-side spring mounts. Had TMR cut me some 20 degree square-tube to mount the buckets. I gusseted the side and have TMR making me a gusset to go under the middle as well.



    Got the control arms all welded up and mounted.





    Flexed it out to full stuff on the drivers side...here you can see the spring mount and gusset at the top.


    Full flex arm clearance:


    Now finally...for the first time since november this Jeep is sitting on its own weight...yes...the weight of the vehicle is 100% on the 14bolt for the first time ever!

    I like your rear frame bucket idea. I'm kind of on the fence of what I'm doing with mine.

    Are you using stock rear coils?

    If not then how much lift did you gain moving if back that far?

    I'm looking to use stock front coils. I'm not sure how much lift I'll get....it's really neither here nor there....if it clears the tires then good and I'll just set the front COs up to match the back.

    Don't forget, you are gonna have more clearance issues to work around in the front than you have in the rear. Don't get too settled on your rear height before you get to the front, we wouldn't want you driving around in a pre-runner

    btw, is it done yet?
