That looks great!! I wasn't sure what to call the lift I will be doing to my JK.
I'm going from my 13/55's to a set of 18/59's taken off a friend's Rubi Unlimited, as well as the Rubi shocks, and a TF leveling kit. Is that a frankenlift?
I'm estimating about 2 inches lift up front from the springs, plus adding just one spacer will get me to 3 inches higher. (Adding the second spacer would get me to 4 inches...too high). For the rear, I'm estimating about 1.5 inches lift from the springs, plus adding the spacer will get me to 2.5 inches higher.
If I do both front spacers that would give me at minimum 3.25" in the front (or even as as much as 4"). That's 1.25" more than what I'm getting out of the rears. I think it makes more sense to just use one front spacer.

|ESP||Very nice! I like "frankelift" you should get a decal from custom decals with Frankenjeep for the side now|

Where did you end up going wheeling? Southington?
Inquiring minds want to know.
How was it? Did you get stuck? (some people say if you don'y get stuck, you aren't trying hard enough!)
How did your daughter like riding shotgun?

That looks GREAT !!
Where did you get your springs and Spacers at?
Im kinda thinking of doing the same here,, but maybe step up to Rancho 9000's so I can adjust the ride if I wish.

Glad the springs worked out for ya!

Btw, I love the look of your ride as well. That red is hot!

|phottomatt||Looks good man I did the spring swap also but that was all I did. Hey did you know you don't have a runner board under you drivers door?|

Terry, I forgot to answer your other question on the spacer but I used it to simply level things out. Mike (MTH above) put 3/4" spacers on all four corners and got a nice level ride. I only did fronts. I'm not sure there's much exact science on this although theoretically, you could figure it out if you had the data. There's lots of ways to skin this cat such as 19/59 coils instead of 60 in the back or the TF level kit or a 1" spacer in front, with .5" in back, or....well you get the drift.

Cool, I may do the track bars and control arms
just to do it. I plan on taking my sweet time and not rushing this.
Yeah, we've got time. We'll keep in touch. I may also join up with NEO 4x4 in the meantime, too.

Next weekend, I'm th e opposite. My middle sons birthday party is Saturday so I'm a Sunday potential if I go. Weve got lots of time so no worries.
|01-29-2012 09:19 AM|
Doing mine Tuesday morning bright and early
You said you DID NOT loosen or even touch the track bars or control arms? Some say you do, some say you don't. Not sure waht to believe on that. As long as it rides well, why bother, right?
I may be able to go to Southington, but only if you go Saturday. Gotta work on Sunday and promised a guy i would trade shifts with him, so it's 16 hrs on Sunday.

Terry, we did not loosen the track bar or control arm, just disconnected the sway bar links and flexed as necessary to squeeze them in. With two people it was no problem,but it would have been tough with just one for sure.

Looks really good, Scott.
Wish you would have measured.

|twalton||nam: Looks great! Did you unbolt the track bars and loosen the control arms to replace the springs? Why did you consider it necessary to install the spacer in front? Thanks, Terry|

|zoso1972||I was thinking of doing this same type of lift but with the 19/60 coils. Looks great.|

|MTH||Yep, looks very good. And done on quite the budget too. Nice.|

Your tires are happy. They can breathe now.
Plus your rig looks more level...maybe just camera angle.

|namasste||Thanks guys. I had 14/55 on there prior. The wheels are MB 72s 15" with Duratrac 33X12.5X15" rubber.|
