Yes, that is full hydro, on the YJ.........it is technically, not street legal, as there is no mechanical hook up, to the steering. But it does ok, on the street. With anti-rocks, front, and rear, she is pretty squirrley, on the street. But it is good enough, to get to the trail heads, from across town, like Moab. She will do 55mph, just fine.

Yes, it is PSC's full hydro system. Matter of fact, they are the one's that built this YJ for me, from scratch, as I am very mechanically challenged.

Well sorry I'm late to your question. I see my "people" have answered your question. If you have any questions about my Jeep please ask bigjeep. He handles all my press.

scout does not have a sye and cv shaft. he does not have a MML either. he just has a tcase drop with the coast 1350 driveshaft (and the adjustable uppers). but don't forget he has a rubi so vibes aren't as likely.

Damn bigjeep, you need to study up. I don't have a transfer case drop anymore. Just a Coast 1350 DS.

Sorry AZ. I promise he'll provide you with more accurate from here on.

I actually swapped out some parts and was testing the suspension for improvements. I took the picture to show my wife. It is nice to have another jeep to drive but little jeeps are scary. Full widths and big tires is where its at

I couldn't agree with you more. The added stability, is awesome. On a seperate note, did you put leafs, on your rear axle? If so, why?

I originally swapped the leafs in the rear for the extra stability they provide. I have wheeled with a couple different people watching that suspension work and it really does in the types of terrain we have out here. It was easy and inexpensive to do and I made it work for well over a year with zero problems.

between you and me once this whole buildup is "finished" I am swapping out the rear for coilovers or air shocks. It was just more involved and I am already over my head with stuff to finish up.

Not saying you are, but, most people dog the rear leaf sprung suspension. I really enjoyed it. The on road ride it delivered was awesome cause I still daily drove it that way for the whole year I beat the crap out of it. Now that my rig is moving more towards trail only I plan to test out some other suspensions to see how they work.

That is kewl, and I am sure it gave you great stability on the road, but they sure don't like to flex, as much as other suspensions. I was just curious, and hope your not bothered by my question. It was just different, and it got my attention...,

bothered?? Doesn't flex??

Neither.

While setting up my current suspension I will have just as much travel in the rear as in the front with coilovers. Both ends will use up all the travel to bumpstop and limit strap. To put it into perspective, The already 1 ton jeep we built will put a 40" tire 48" up in the air before lifting a tire. That's the bottom of the tire. If built correctly it will flex like mad. I think it just has a harder time keeping more pressure on the tires at full droop and likes to hop a bit.

There are definitely downfalls to each suspension so I just try to maximize the benefits and stay away from the bad stuff
