Watered my lawn & Jeep last night..Jeep grew more

So I put the 35's and the Superlift 3.5" Wrangler lift on. It's a bit tall now! Doesn't ride too bad considering my back shocks aren't long enough to even reach at ride height

Looks good, but I would be concerned about rubbing. Those tires look real close to sheet metal just sitting there. I rub with 33", (Actually they are 31.5" tall), 4" spring lift and fender trimming.

Are the shackles supposed to stick out that far in front of the bumper on level ground? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

A set of TJ flares will give you a lot more clearance .

YJ springs are wider in the front and flexier.


Looks good, maybe some trimming is in order....

Re: Watered my lawn & Jeep last night..Jeep grew more

I'll try to answer all the questions...lol

Can't flex it too much right now, don't have long enough front shocks...just got the rears today

RS5010's

The front I'm going to do the ford shock tower and should be able to run the really long 5012's....

I did a little testing/flexing and found that when the rear spring is completely flat (stuffed), the tire doesn't hit so I don't think I want to negative arch the spring so I will put bumpstops there....

The shackle is pointed foward because of the longer wrangler springs. This allows more Rake and more droop. A lot of SOA people use this. When it flexes with right springs I'll show you what I'm talking about.

TJ flairs are probably in order tho....
