That is dirt cheap if they are 2.5s..... I'll take a set of those in 14" travel and 4" air bumps.

Don't waste your money on 2" bypasses if that's what's in your price.

Putting all that in a tj will be impressive. Might as well just build a buggy any put a tj hood on it.

2.5" bypasses and 2.0" coil carriers.

Why would you have bypasses designed to do 80% of the work smaller than the shock doing 20% of the work?

If you really do plan on bypasses then make sure you design the suspension so you can use all of the zones of valving or you're wasting their perks. 8-10" of bump travel and 6-8" of droop from ride height. Without links on the control arms, I'd use a 16" travel shock.

I was wondering if you sold this jeep and bought a rock crawler buggy? I have not seen anything on this lately? I met you at the jeep blessing if you do not remember me. What springs are you running on the rear of this wrangler? Thankyou

so need some input..since the rear is getting linked and it is so smashed, going to cut it off.what way do you like better?dove tail with sides still on.or full tube with new skins.

cory has a couple more weeks on his buggy then i can have him give me a hand bending some tube.

going to basically copy 1 one these 2 designs.

For what you do with it, full tube and skins. That will be easier to repair and work on in the long run.
