Triangulated rear shocks

I've seen it done before. If it's done to your jeep post a pic. Does triangulating the shocks help with travel/tire drop?

Another question...

How many of you have removed the
Musket tube on the stock air intake for more air flow? If so post pics and state if it has helped you.

Thanks.

Triangulated? That's not a term I've seen used when talking about the rear shock absorbers. Do you mean have any of us moved the shock's lower mounting point outward?

The trumpet tube on the intake of the air filter box serves to speed up the flow of air to help quiet the intake noise. Removing it will not, in any way, improve performance because it is well known to not restrict the air flow below what the engine is capable of consuming at wide-open-throttle and redline rpms.

The picture is off google. The pic is not a jeep it's a yota. Anyways I thought that was it maybe it's upper inward shock mount. Sorry for confusion. But this is what I mean. There is a vid on you tube of a tj with it I believe the title is "Colorado trail 1:1" not sure

outboard the rear shocks. that will help droop, handling, travel and suspension behavior a lot.

of course it requires a lot of work...and cutting a big arse hole in the frame.

Ahhh. I had these on my Jeep before the stretch. They work great and keep the lower shock mount out of the way.
