One coilover and one triple bypass shock. Has to do with being able to tune the performance

So the shock is in addition to the damper in the coilover?

ya, the coilover has midrange dampening while the triple bypass shock has adjustable "zones" for dampening. Can tune the low end of the compression dampening to act like a hydro bumpstop.

Interesting. If I win the lottery it sounds like a good way to go. As it stands I think struts will be going in the front next year, maybe the back. I have really had it with the abortion that is called a TJ spring setup.

Finish up the front longarms. Final weld the coilover mounts an torque everything and flex it out, check for final clearance on everything. If time allows start all the wire extensions I have to make

did the front long arms and final mock up of the coilover/triple bypass package.
have to completely reroute the exhaust from the cats to the y-pipe. that is going to be terrible and time consuming.

Soooo needless to say when a diesel wrangler comes out, you should have a shop for my business too.

That moment when you look at a really nice JK and think to yourself, "Well I SUPPOSE I could see myself trading in my TJ for one of those, but for those ugly ass door handles."

You got that right. 9 per axle. Total of about 18 wires or so

Looks like you've got pretty good balance on the front/rear articulation, not much tip in the body at all. Front arms look to be about thirty six inches. Looks like they're keeping the angularity down but not begging to hang up on rocks. Very nice

I kind of figured something out. who knows if the math is sound. figure out the ratio of suspension travel vs arm length stock. then transfer that to a new set up. arms are 34.5 with adjustment plus or minus 1 inch

Interesting. Do you figure suspension travel based on compressed/decompressed length of the shock? I used something similar, based on the ratio of the difference in spring heights. As I thing about it, it seems like the two methods should work out about to the same ratio.

Figure it out based on actual travel. I always attempt to get a 100% use of travel out of my shocks. But when I fall short I will use actual suspension travel
