Bolt-on Extended shock towers????

does anyone know of anywhere i can get Bolt-On extendsed shock towers for my 1985 cj7. Im looking for something that requires NO welding...because i cant weld worth crap [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

i heard the stock towers were weak....so i figured i'd upgrade the shock towers since i need new shocks anyways.....

THANKS!!

PS. IM AN ENTHUSIAST NOW...WoooHoooo!!!!

Awhile back there was talk about Ford F250/F350 shock mounts. Not sure if they are bolt though, i think most people cut down part of the stock mounts and welded these onto them. Try doing a search.

You could use 4-plus's extended shock towers with there u-bolt skid plates for some really long front shocks.

Re: Bolt-on Extended shock towers????

the ford mounts are bolt on and nice and tall. i had a 93 f250 4x4 that had them on it and i thought that they looked like a good swap for a jeep.

Mid-80's Ford F250/350 towers. They bolt on, just require drilling a couple of new mounting holes. Cost about $12 apiece from the dealer parts counter.
