GonzoBobH Haha, I have an evap relocation and shield on hand to install. The adj track bar is on the way. Feeling okay.

Rancho 9000's... sounds nice, haha.

snochick Bob you'd be surprised at the shocks pave put in Harley and how good his ride is. Theyre just the desert rattlers from desert rat. Actually ticks me off bc mine are more expensive.

I think it was kj though that highly recommended the rancho 9000's. Gonna try those as soon as the wallet can afford another round of upgrades. Skid plates are next on our priority list though. He's afraid we're gonna knock a hole in an oil pan next time we do something like chimney rock again.

(my fight with the parking lot sign yesterday morning may or may not have caused the oil pan scare.). Lol

GonzoBobH Ahh.

Bilstien shocks, or something like that.

With 2.5 you would not want to lose shock travel or worse, bottom out if that's possible.

GonzoBobH Not thinking about extensions with the pin eliminators, just a stronger connection.

Pics aren't reading on my phone, so gonna have to reboot. But I do have pics of the poison ivy... stay tuned.

I got that. The link that kjeeper10 provided shows the extender/bar pin eliminator as one. Looks like the best of both worlds. But the OP posted a pic of a BPE that provides a very modest shock extension of maybe 1/2".
Just wondering if the OP ordered these thinking they also extend?

Nice rig, btw Bob

Can't wait to see some pics of your rig with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn.

Hope the Gecko's don't gang up on the Silver rig, but would be a cool pic.

The 1st pic confused me, I was thinking I was looking at a quick disco of some sort.

Ahh.

The "bar pin" goes trough a bushing and must be removed to use the BPE.

. Jk's only use a bar pin in the rear up top.

First I heard of using bar pin eliminators on a JK

but I'm no expert. Adjustable track bar, I can see that.

Now I need more stuff if I go for 35's, LOL. Those axle seals look like they would be very useful.

You should contact Chris at Jeep Add-ons or Truck ad ons (vendor here) and see about the axle tube sleeve kit and inner c-gusset kit with lower control arm skids. Seems like a good deal to me.

JeepAddOns.com - Nitro Gear & Axle

Now to make up my mind on doing all this to my rig, or waiting and doing it to the JKU I'm buying the wife next year.

Are you running stock Rubi shocks with this BB? You realize the bar pin eliminator doesn't really extend your shocks? Just a different means of mounting them.

I'll definitely keep that in mind. And you're probably right -- I am just caught up in the same vicious cycle that many on the forum are caught up in: mod, mod, mod.

So far, much fun.
