I have to iron out an issue with my hydro assist then I will be ready to go
Just dropped the hammer!!! Rear Rock jock 60 and a core 44 fully built coming soon!!!
Very clean work! Great idea for the extra fender armor trim. It would suck to scratch off that shiny new paint.
Just passed this on 77, looks like somebody's been busy.
Yeah i was just headed to work, I am getting close to being done with it!
Between the exhaust humming and tires singing, you make a very peculiar sound at highway speeds. Just saying. Would love to see the jeep in action.
Yeah right now i dont have a muffler on it, just waiting to install the ORIs then it will quiet that down a little bit....lol it does pretty well on the trails, i can tell a huge difference from all the mods i did
I saw this thing in Harrisburg at the QT yesterday and had to look online to see if it was a bold on kit and actually found the build thread, how cool is that. That's the baddest 2dr jk I've ever seen, great work man!!!
Good looking JK, how do you like the 3 link rear? I need to do a few things before I dive back into my suspension.
I like the 3 link in the rear, it's not as good as a triangulated rear but that's a pain to do on a JK with the gas tank in the way, but overall I am happy with it.
Yeah I'm leaning towards a triangulated 4 link out back, I did a TJ tank swap on mine to fix that factory rock magnet. With that big of a stretch you'd have to go with a cell. I can get about 3", maybe 4", out back with mine. Figured 3" front and rear would be the route I go.
I am currently doing an 8" synergy stretch on my 2012, did you change your rear pinion angle at all? I was going to adjust mine a little with the new weld on control arm brackets(axle side), then adjust the rest out with the control arms. Just trying to get some input from someone who's done a stretch on a JK
I did change my pinion angle, but I just made the adjustments with the upper control arm, you may have to clock your spring perch to get the wrap out of the coil spring
How much did you change it and what does it sit at at ride height? I am doing coilovers on all 4 corners so this could be tricky getting it right, thanks for the input!
Late in the game but any pics of the upper coil mounts and upper shock mounts?
I may have over-read it, but are you running any front stretch? Also what length ORI’s did you go with, and how “intruding” was it on space on the inside, if any? I’d like to run ORI’s or coilovers, but my biggest concern right now is space. I’d still like to run a back seat, and have a little bit of storage area.
