You can give me your 44s when your done

Thanks I have an 06 lj rubi and right now I'm stuck with 33s but have room for 37s due to my 4 inch lift and metal cloaks, but ill go to 35s when I need new tires. Now my 44's are stock but I plan on putting on c gussets, sleeves, and trusses. With rcv front shaft and a chromo rear. Just wanted to know how those 44 were holding up. Thanks

Sounds like a solid plan! You should be fine with that set up.

Highlights are no push off, and no need for springs, spring buckets, sway bars, or bump stops.


Off ORI's site
Specifications:
Dual pressurized chamber design for unmatched body roll stability in fast turns, and on off-camber side hills. Can be set to mid-stroke ride height and still control body roll, and not push off. Most users dump the sway bar.
With ORI’s internal features, most users also dump the external bump stops and limit straps.
3-stage velocity-sensitive compression damping Soft ride changes to firm compression damping as piston shaft speed increases.Conventional air shocks are typically set to low ride height to prevent push-off, but bottom quickly over bumps as a result. ORIs set at mid-stroke, will both suck up the bumps, and will drop out quickly over the whoops. No trade-offs in performance.Coil-Overs are set close to full extension to help reduce body roll. ORIs set at mid-stroke, are ready to react, whether to compress when hitting a bump, or to drop out in an instant over a rut, maintaining a more level, comfortable ride at speed.
Tunable anywhere from firm ride to loose articulation by simply adjusting nitrogen gas pressures.
Higher load capacity than conventional air shocks. Nitrogen gas charge over 2” piston can support up to 1900 lbs/strut.
Compact, simple installation fits tight spaces, and replaces a lot of unnecessary hardware.
Velocity-sensitive, 7-position externally-adjustable rebound damping
Internal hydraulic bump stop on compression stroke
Hydraulic end-of-stroke cushioning at full extension
Cooling fins dissipate heat
Lightweight construction
Billet 6061 aluminum, stainless and high-strength carbon steel
Hard chrome steel cylinder and tough 1 ¾” piston shaft
Teflon-lined spherical bearings for 1/2” & 5/8” mounting bolts
High pressure 5000 psi seals for extreme off-road abuse
Corrosion resistant anodize outer coating
ORI Struts do not Unload, or Push Off
Piston shafts can be set to extend to a park position, then wheel and axle weight can still pull the struts to full extension.

Sweet, nice build

You might want to get the currie 1" lift motor mounts. They are bullet proof and really help with the rear drive shaft angle

I'm about to enter my cage design phase. How did you do your design and how much tube are you going to use?

Lots of research. I should use 3 to 4 sticks of 1 3/4 and a stick of 1 1/2 for the seat mounts and such. Here are some links that helped me out. Happy reading.
