I am off to bed guys. Have a great night!
The smartest thing I ever did was find a woman that enjoyed the jeep thing as much as me. I build it. She gets to drive it. What could be better?

I haven't decided what to use on mine yet. What ever it ends up and being it'll have to be able to take the extra weight.

You want ORI's or Coilovers. Either will support any amount of weight you can toss at it.

Probably coilovers. I've got a Cummins 5.9L going up front but I'm not sure how to figure what springs to get.

You need to measure the unsprung weight. Tough to do without the proper scales. There are many factors that play into your equation. If you know a highway cop with scales it makes a world of difference.

There are scales on base somewhere.

Sweet. As long as you can measure each corner separately you are golden!

Wait, unsprung weight?!?! Don't I need to go by the sprung weight as that is what is going to support the body and engine?

Yea your gonna love them, basically a coilover bypass setup in one. all it is missing is a big resivoir to keep things cool. but if you not hitting woop sections and long term speed you got nothin to worry about. cool buy man cant wait to see em in action. if you do plan on hitting things hard, I would still recomend a 2 or 4 inch air bump (pending on your uptravel) . Id rather destroy those then the ORI on a hard smack.

We have scales that are used to weigh cargo for loading on planes. 1 per tire.

You are correct. But it is tough to measure sprung weight. Most work backwards from unsprung weight.

I don't need to worry about high speeds and keeping things cool. I tend to do everything slow so it lasts longer.

Now is the time when you can properly measure weight. That is the best design for determining the proper spring weight for your rig. Even so, if you get it wrong and decide you want something different springs are easy to swap.


In case of the ORIs... it is a simple oil/gas change.

Gotcha. I might be able to temporarily put the coil springs off the dodge in there to get get both sprung and unsprung weight. We'll see. That is still a ways off.

Thanks for the compliments I'm pretty happy with the way it's turning out so far, still have some stuff to do but it's coming along.

Yeah, I was looking at that earlier today also. Would definitely look better with the bumpers off, and I might need to end up removing them anyway before I put the spare tire carrier on. I need to get the carrier fixed first, but it's a priority because I really don't want the matching spare to stay sitting in the back where it's at now. I already miss having a rear seat, lol.

Great looking Jeep! It's one of those rigs that look like it could drive to the top of somewhere like Mt Everest and not break a sweat. I'd love to do something like that someday, but that day is likely at least several years down the road for me

Today I installed the new XRC tire carrier and spare tire. Yesterday I installed the Bushwacker 6" flat style fender flares. I was really happy to be able to get the tire out of the back of the jeep and put the rear seat back in, and the smell of new tires being inside is gone now too, yay. Here's a few more pics I took this afternoon with the new stuff done.






The new flares don't stick out nearly as far as it might appear in the last pic, it's just the angle because I was standing pretty close when I took the picture. Flares just barely cover the tread, still got some sidewall hanging out

Love this picture. Very cool. Disconnect the sway bar and do it again to see the difference in flex.

Just picked this up last week. Hopefully getting rid of my big tube bumpers and having a local guy weld me some new ones. Loving it so far.
