final testing

(yeah I know, it's never finished)

Ok, after finding out that Hollister was closed today (#$*^!%#$*), I ended up heading out to Carnegie to get some testing in.



Here are the results.



I finally managed to lift a tire also. This is the full flex right now (until I put on some missing links in the rear).

Re: final testing

I'm running stock 5 leaf YJ's front and rear with the CSC kit and spring over. I'm actually planning on adding a 6th leaf to the rear pack though and see if that helps level it out without hurting the flex.

Re: final testing

Looks real good Mark! I like the bumper, I've got the same one![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] You need to get a winch on that bad boy! My winch is on order now and should have it when I return back to the states! Can't wait! Anyway, your zuk is looking good! Keep the pics coming! Later

Re: final testing

That is one clean looking Zuk. Nice flex pic too. Do you find that the tires are making contact with the truck under full flex at all?

BTW are those CJ mirrors?

Re: final testing

The tires are 31x10.5 TSL's on the Petroworks 15x8's. Right now I get no rub anywhere.

And yes, they are CJ mirrors from JC Whitney ($40/pair).
