Re: Lowering

Re: Lowering

Lower a Jeep??? What kind of a ridiculous idea is that. If you want something one of a kind, put some 5 ton military axles under it, some 60" monster truck tires, but please do not ever even mention lowering of a very capable off road machine. If you choose to proceed, I hope there is someone around to put that poor Jeep out of it's misery... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Lowering

Hey Ozark, I don't think Sandman would mind if you took a picture of Ragex and mailed it to to the Sierra Club...

As far as lowering the jeep goes, call your local cement plant, and order about 5 yards of some 40,000psi cement. Get in the jeep...close every opening except for the passenger side window. Leave that open just enough to get the cement funnel in. The weight will easily lower the jeep for you. Just remember to stay very still while it's hardening...umm..you need to have a hollowed out spot to sit...yeah, that's it.

If that cement trick doesn't work, try picking up some of those overweight, trahsy chicks that find "lowriders" cool. By the time you get 5 or 6 of them in the jeep, you'll be bottoming out on every pothole around, just like you want.

One of a kind vehicle, eh? Nobody here has ever seen a lowered car before...much less a lowered jeep. Whew! What an original thought. Hey, with all this talk about new suspensions giving "too-much" articulation and too high of a center of gravity, maybe this lowering thing will catch on! Anybody have the link to the "Easy 50hp add-on exhaust tip" website that was on here a while ago? It'd probably be right up his alley.

Re: Lowering

If you really want to lower it, go to http://www.ridetech.com and check out the site.
You will find some things really cool, and although they make no direct bolt on kit, they have universal kits that will lift or lower your vehicle.
They also have a BBS, and you can get answers there to all your questions....

Re: Lowering

I still have tears in my eyes from laughing so hard about the cement truck.
Do you think it might work?
How about we just saw of the axles and I'll drag it around with a real Jeep for him.
