6\" monolinear in action

OK, here is a shot on the ramp and another one on the trail. Not as flexy as I thought it would be, but I like it so far. It was my first time out with it. I got a 696 on the ramp. I was limited by the rear tire getting stuffed into the sheet metal in the fender well. So I will have to do some trimming in the rear. Both track bars were still on.

Re: 6\" monolinear in action

Bryan, your profile doesn't indicate what size tires you are using. How do you like the ride of the monolinear, highway and off road, what shocks are you using?

Re: 6\" monolinear in action

This may be silly question for some of you, but, how are the road manners? Ive seen the monolinear advertised and Ive read lots of praise for its off-road capabilities. However, I havent read anything about its on-road manners. My Jeep is a daily driver, so I have to have a streetable set up. Give us a little review...???

Holy sh*t thats a long way down!

Re: 6\" monolinear in action

The on road performance is much better than I had planned on it being. So I am happy with that. I only go about 60 mph tops. If it hit a big bump at that speed it bobbles a little but not dangerously. In town driving is great. I am using the shocks that came with the kit. Hydros I think. As far as off road performance - I have only had it out twice so far and it did fine. My next trip is in 4 weeks.

Re: 6\" monolinear in action

If you are considering getting the monolear kit, you might want to do some research on it. People have the springs bend constantly, I have even heard of a guy bending 3 in one outing. They sag like all hell after some offroad use. If you ask the people at Skyjacker the will admit themselves that it is meant more for on-road use.

Re: 6\" monolinear in action

That is interesting. I have a good friend who just put these on a project jeep he is building. He heard all of this stuff and had a long talk with the SkyJacker project manager. The story he got was they had issues (those mentioned above) with the early production versions and have since re-worked them to address those problems. I guess time will tell...

Jim,

People are bending the new springs as well. Im surprised that Skyjacker continues to sell this suspension.

Re: 6\" monolinear in action

I would be highly dissapointed with a RTI of 6xx. They advertised a RTI of over 1k on a 23* ramp.

If you are being limited by your fenders, then hack them. Or put on a small body lift. Or better yet, do both.
