did a couple searches....found a few threads. not sure if i found the one you were talkin bout or not. most of the threads were recomending kits for moving the rear back. i'm 86'in the rear seat so i won't have an issue with the fuel tank. i'll just put it in the bed. what other obtacles will i encounter? i'm not sure if the jeep has an sye kit or not. i asked the guy i got it off and he didn't know either. the rear driveshaft is pretty steep right now. moving the rear back will help flatten the angle out right....hopefully a nice enough angle that i won't need an sye? any thoughts anyone?

here's what i was thinkin....wanted the travel a linked suspension can offer. but i don't like the pucker factor linked suspensions offer. i'm still a newbie learnin the ropes. so i figured i'd link the rear and keep leafs up front because the rear is "easier" to set up than the front. i've looked around and found a whole bunch of rigs out there that are set up like this. found one very good write up on a yj build on pirate forums about it.....pretty sure it was pirate forums. seemed like a good fit for me. but, like i said before. i'm not ready to tackle this myself yet....so i'm stickin with leafs all around for now.

sweet. what kind of shocks you runnin? how much travel you get? originally i was planning on setting up a 4 link w/ coils in the rear and leafs up front....but since i'm not geometrically inclined. i'm stickin with leafs all around....for now. i'll be runnin 37" iroks, so i don't think i'll have any trouble with rubbing. thx a bunch fellas
