Here is another pic from last weekend.

Pat you want to share the details of your CJ with everyone? I know most of the info about it, but would probably leave something out.....so feel free to elaborate.

Hello, Ironman. I Met You Quite A Few Years Ago. Right After You Rolled Your Trailer With Your Jeep In It. I Came Over A Few Times With Greg Moore
Good To See You Still Have The Cj. Looks Good

Mike summed up most of it, thanks Mike!

I am getting ready to install my new Ultimate Air tank and I will be running my front ARB with it as well.

It also has the Centec wiring harness which is the nicest harness by far!

The FI 304 has roller rockers, Edelbrock intake and cam with MSD Pro Billet dist.and MSD 6AL ignition and high vibe MSD coil. It also has a one of a kind TLH/Ironman roll cage.

It will soon be on an Ironman frame with coil overs and alloy shafts in the axles.

And Hi Jeepguy, I remember you, I think Greg dated your sister?

Runor has it, you just did high-steer with PartsMike arms. What arms did you get (the standard ones or the taller heavy ones) and what springs are you sprung over with (how many leafs)? How much clearance do you have between the spring and the tierod?

I used the standard parts mike arms and I am running the RE YJ spring over springs. I have a 1/2" of clearence between the spring and the tie rod, it seems to be working great!

The springs have 5 leaves and sit on a regular spring perch with a 1/2" thick bar stock welded to the top, this makes up for the height of the spring perch on the pass. side. With this set up your springs set a little higher then an axle that was set up for spring over from the fact.

So what I am saying is that I had enough space for the standard arms even though my springs are higher than they noramlly would be.
