Tiltz 2 door JK

Hey Everybody, thought I'd share the project I am currently working on.

I am newish to the forum but not new to Jeeping

Specs:
• 2012 2 door manual Rubicon daily driver
• 35 inch procomp MT
• 2.5” TeraFlex Coils and shocks
• Ruff Country front Bumper
• Warn 9.5TI Masterpull Synthetic Line and Aluminum Fairlead
• SmittyBilt XRC Carrier
• Shrockworks Rock Sliders
• Cobra Radio
• Front D44: Artec Truss, and Skids, Poly Performance C Gussets and Inner Sleeves, Alloys USA Ball Joints, Ruff Stuff Tie Rod, Synergy flipped Draglink
• Synergy front Long Arms
• Chopped up fenders, dings, NW pinstripes, broken taillight, crunched up stock skid plates


In the works:
8" Stetch
-8" Synergy stretch, which includes new arms, frame side control arm brackets, and a frame side track bar bracket. Stock bumpstops will be moved back 8."
-Coilover Towers will be set inboard on the frame and connected with DOM. The placement is the only thing that is really undecided. I might do some chopping to the cross member and mount direct above the axle. I might not. I bought the synergy lower control arm skids with shock mounts, so I do have an alternative shock mounting location. The rear track bar bracket looks like it will determine the shock placement. Either way they are going through the floor. I will probably gets some sheet metal and box around them so that the floor is still water tight.
-14" 2.0 remote resi King Coilovers - mount resevoirs to DOM cross member
-4 door e-brake cables
-Hard brake line relocation (maybe - I already replaced both stock rears and mounted them differently because my sway bar links didn't clear properly - they might work as is)
-Lengthen ABS wires, breather hose, locker wires,
-Either ditch the sway bar or it looks like it could be moved back on the frame. The only problem is that the frame is in a lower position. looks doable
-New driveshaft
-Cut off factory exhaust before axle and mount inline muffler and run straight back
-Limit Straps
-Trim sheet metal to allow for full stuff. I am going to try and retain as much of the corner as possible. I do not want to compcut. I will most likely run a modified stock fender flare until Poison Spyder releases their new custom corners.

Ruff Stuff Tie Rod

If you have a JK and need a new Tie Rod, I highly recommend the Ruff Stuff Specialties one. It is super simple to build and install. I went ahead and drilled out my knuckles for a tapered insert, but this step is not necessary. It just allows the taper to sit deeper so you can engage the cotter pin... Your call.

Long arms up front

Ripped out the old... They are pretty small next to the Synergy stuff



Making it so the Jeep can never be stock again: (factory control arm brackets)


New bracket in place


Everything pinned up with the arms adjusted a little less than an inch forward


Approximation of the stretch

Welding more stuff on...

Sliders used to be bolt on, but new long arm brackets didn't like where the sliders bolted up...

So mod them and weld them on.


Notice how the bracket wraps around the bottom of the frame


Chop off those lower mounts


Clean the frame and weld them on
