Still waiting on KillerB to put my gears in, so no action yet. But here are some action pics from before the redo. However, the only thing constant between the rig in these pictures and my current build is the body, cage and parts of the frame.

Couple questions

1. in the pic with the Bling H2 rims, is the front sitting higher or is it the pic?
2. how do you like the waggy springs for SOA, it looks huge, are they stock waggy springs? I was thinking of going that way for my soa but not sure. Also do you have an idea how much taller the waggy's are than stock springs? I'm debating between 1.5" RE soa Springs, Waggies, and some beefed up stock YJ springs.

Looks good!

Jeff, it's looking good man. Can't wait to see it on the trail, I believe it was 3-4 years ago, when I last saw that Jeep up at Busters.

Question what made you go from 39.5's to 37's?

Those are 37" Goodyear MT/R on the H2 rims.

I went from 39.5" Bias Ply SS TSL (top pic) to the 37" radial MT/R (bottom pic) only because with my suspension the bias ply tire flat-spots made my steering SCARY. I wanted radials and the 39.5" IROK radials are rediculously expensive and I picked up a set of 6 MT/R very reasonably.

My front was sitting higher in that Pic. I moved my rear shackles back where they belong and it leveled it out better. But still, it is not perfectly level. They are used stock Waggy springs and it sits very high.

Roadhouse, what were you driving at Busters? I haven't seen Brian and Carmen in a few years. Can't wait to get wheelin again.

Jeff

Thanks for the response, you'll have to let us all know what you think of the height and ride when you take it offroading. It does look nice though. Hopefully next winter I'll be able to finish up my SOA. I'm still gathering parts for this year.

Agreed, it looked tough with the Super Swampers. But I'm more about function than looks; and witht he SS I couldn't go over 25mph without it oscillating like crazy. Also, I flat tow so that would really be a problem. "If" I find the MT/R are not agressive enough for me at some point I will consider investing in a set of Irok radials.

Sorry dude, this is the only other one I have with the H2s. Looks like I need an extra leaf in my rear springpacks too after wheeling it.
