Nice. Do you have a USA jeep? If so, was that tail light swap easy? I always thought those overseas lights looked awesome.

your jeep looks great, love the flex and I really like the exhaust mod you did on it. Is that custom or is there a kit?

Because the exhaust manifold exits down on the drivers side of the engine....so you could just go from there back instead of crossing over underneath the engine/trans and down the other side

I don't understand why the front axle is parallel with the tub in this picture. Those front coilovers must be really stiff. Both axles should be really flexed and the body should be close to level in that situation, right? What am I missing here?

Looks like youre just running a 3-4 link rear end with coilovers, and stock style suspension but in long arm variation. The reason the flex isnt the same?

Nope. I made the front stiffer because the engine is very heavy. second reason, I do rock crawling, ride trails and play in the river. I like a little bounciness in the front. 3; The suspension is adjustable, so when I go in a rock crawl competition I can make it a lot softer.
It's just set up like that because it is more convenient to drive on the road to get where I want to go offroad. Usually when I go competing, I will have the suspension relaxed and then I will ship the Jeep by truck.

To be honest, as long as you stay away from mud... it's a lot of fun. Got stuck in quick sands once.. took 3 jeeps= winch to get me out.



I use my 95 yj to go mudding. That one is so light that you don't get stuck in mud.
