How much lift are you running? Mine is sitting 6" above stock w/ the SOA. Not sure I want to run something as big as a 34, but I like the stance of yours.

I believe the springs are 2-3" then I have .5" from the shackles, and .5" or so in the body mounts I used. The 34" tires look about perfect on it in person, when I get the paint and stuff on it I think it will look exactly as I hoped. The 34" tires do no measure 34," IIRC 99grandTJ measured them when we were monkeying with it and they measure closer to a 32" tire.

I am bummed, I went out and bought some Thrush Turbos to put on the CJ2A to make it trail legal (the glass packs were not considered spark arrestors) and Adam and I put them on... I can now hear every rattle, squeak and pop.... I didn't expect it to be quieter considering the exhaust is headers into mufflers into nothing right under my seat....

On the up side, I won't hear that crack tractor exhaust sound for 3 days after I drive it

I wish I could run the open headers, that sounded nice and throaty.

Another upside is it feels torquier...

New Bikini top looks nice as well.

These are probably 1/4 of the glass packs I had R)

Here are the pics, we finished after dark so this is the best I have. The bikini is actually for an early 5, but it was dirt cheap.







Sample of what I took...












And the video.... Really quiet, the camera was only about 10' away.

I hate the mounds mud. If I could go there and not get 2" of concrete, sewage smelling, staining, mud all over my jeep I would go. I still have mud coming off my YJ from 3 years ago, after HOURS of pressure washing.

That said, it may end up out there, It would fit down the quad trails... but it would have to be before I finally paint it which I would like to get the tractor paint and do soon.

Do I even want to know how you did it

You could have had a set of keys to move it, but you never wanted to
