I like where this is going. Coilovers on the same list as finding a pot of gold, but who knows. Nice build , subscribed...

Ever think about adding some holes in that truss to let some air get through for less drag?

Thanks! Yes, those will be replaced with rectangle tubing and a cage will go in eventually.

No, I only have two springs right now. Still need to order the other two. I will be staying dual rate though.

Since Onlyinmyxj22 left his Jeep in my backyard, I had to see how well his 37s fit I will be running 33s on 17" wheels though.






Although his tires fit quite nicely...
