Re: H8Monday=shock mounts

Also, has anybody checked out the rear shock mount that Jeepwire.com did on their project YJ. Nice, neat, looks strong, simple, and most important well thought out. These two mods together should be great together.

Re: H8Monday=shock mounts

Id be glad to, but I need to use a regular camera and scanner, so it may take a few days or so.
It was pretty simple though. I simply used a torch to cut away enough of the stock tower to insert the Ford tower about 3" higher than the stock tower. Then I just welded all the way around the new ford tower(using the old tower as a wrap around gusset). Then I cut off the rest of the Ford tower even with the bottom of the frame atthe tower location. And welded the ford tower to the frame. Simple,....Hmmmmmmm, I'll post pictures ASAP.

Re: H8Monday=shock mounts

I have many pictures of my laid down rear shock set up, which I think works awsome, you cant argue with the performance I get from it on the trail or the ramp(1343RTI on a 25 degree).

Re: H8Monday=shock mounts

That is sweet as well. Have you looked at the one I spoke of above? Yours probably is stouter though(looks that way, at least), it has less to rust up and freeze. What size square tubing did you use? I was thinking of welding the tubing on top of the frame(in between it and the body, 2 in. body lift). This would allow me to mount the shocks in a more upright position. What size shocks are you using(RS9012?)? I do like the mount that the Jeep Wire guy used. Looks like the spring would protect the bottom mount. Any thoughts?

Re: H8Monday=shock mounts

Im using 2x2x 1/4" steel square tubing and RS9012, but with the additional travel I get from the angle I well exceed the 13" of travel. It also does a very good job of controling body roll when the inn cab settings are set high.
