OK! For all of those that were interested in this type of build...I started my new thread. I didnt want to start it until I actually had something to show. I have messaged the forum moderators and requested access to perform write-ups and will be giving in-depth photo's and instructions/tips for install of all the products I have listed as well as some youtube video's covering it. for those hard-core wheelers into a ton of fabrication work, it wont be too exciting for you, but for those who cant weld, but dont want that and all the cost associated with hiring a shop to do your install to limit you from a MIGHTY capable rig, then this is just for you!(but mostly for me )

There's a forum user named Pat@Fields and he is offering 2% below invoice but his dealorships are in Il and FL. And I read that if you order a Jeep brochure from the Jeep website, you might get lucky and get a $500 bonus cash rebate.

Oh so a quick update. I have been in hawaii for the past three months for work. I can only get on forums from my phone since they block everything on their computers. There have been many parts purchased for this build and will update everything once I'm back to the mainland and online.
Also I will be placing my order for the 2013 JKUR Dune in a couple weeks when the ordering becomes available. Anyone know of a dealer that rocks for pricing? I have tread lightly, but looking for someone that might discount on top of that.

What will effect articulation is your control arm joints. If you are using an isolator or rubber bushing type joint, then they will be a binding point. Also if you use a 4 link radius arm lift, it will also bind before full articulation is met. If you are using "short arms" with something like a Johnny Joint ends you will have a greater level of articulation but wont have that quiet dampening effect of the rubber isolator that the factory links have.
Long arms will give you greater stability when performing maneuvers or when swerving at high rates of speed. Easiest way to compare is how much stability you have while flat footed compared to on tippy toes.

You could remove the logo and re-attach it.

The links to pictures from post 20 appear to be broken, OP.

Pm a moderator. Or flag that post with what you want to do.
Can't coil overs be used in place on long arms to increase articulation ?

|StrizzyChris||Quick question. How do I update a post. I am wanting to edit and regularlt update my second post, which is the parts list. Cant find the edit button?|

Ahh I see. Seeing how much I hang my mounts on rocks and such I dont know if I would trust them just bolted onto the frame.
I am guessing since you are going through with a build like this that you plan on wheeling it hard. It might be worth looking into having someone run a bead around the control arm mounts after you finish the install. I am a firm beleaver in overkill when it comes to building something for hardcore wheeling.
Also dont forget to alow time to have your driveshafts built after you have everything built and take your mesurments for them.

|WatchThis!||Maby Im missing something but how can long arms be bolt on? I dont see how it would work if you used the stock mounting points.|

Made a stop yesterday in my "research" for the 1-ton axles I am going to use. That visit was at a little shop some of you guys might have heard of called Dynatrac.
I had spoke to Steve in the past and he is a really nice guy. On this visit, Steve was out of town on an off road trip and, I spoke with Dan Seldon. He is a great guy as well. I was there and we just chatted for a couple hours about all things off road. This guy knows his stuff and really personable.
On both occurences I never felt any pressure to buy. Never have they tried to push any expensive upgrades on me that I didnt need. Dan actually gave me recommendations of "not needing" some upgrades for my purpose and told me to save that for other upgrades more suitable.
These guys are one of my front-runners in my axle choice

The cost of the lever system alone, you can by this complete front and rear bolt-on system. Also synergy has a bolt on rear system but its install is much more involved, costs about the same, and adds more weight to the rig.
There is also a Rebel kit called Recon that I was researching, and people seem to like a lot as well. That total front and rear kit costs $4,600 plus tax and shipping. The reported wheel travel of the rebel kit is less than what I have read to be reported by the EVO kit, and at that price point, its $1000 more total cost.
