I chose those shock mounts for the reason if I decide down the road to change it up, I wont have to change that.

I am hoping to have it drivable by april 30th. I may be sporting 3.73s and welded carriers at that time. Hoping to have the 5.38s and arb/zips in it by june.

This is my down time of year at work, so just doing what I can as the extra $ is there to do it.
That's cool, just wondered. Coils and good shocks will work fine, just with seeing all the pricey parts going on this thing I'd expect to see that in the shock department too. Mine doesn't have half the bling yours does but I still went coilover

What made you choose the Bestop over the softopper?

Same reasoning why I don't have an Atlas as well

Nope not at all. Plentiful for sure. Now the aftermarket needs to pick up the production.

We talked with Stan from Branik at KOH and he said they can do outer and slugs. We will be ordering a set when we return. Jon Terhune is running them on his 4400 buggy.
