WesterM3 Great wheeling this weekend at Uwharrie! Weather was great and we hit every trail. The coilovers, anti rocks, and new hydro-ram assist steering performed awesome!

I can understand that. I know and wheel with guys that swear by them but I haven't either. I've heard some good things about method, raceline, and trail ready. three guys I do a fair amount of wheeling with and it's a solid 1.5 hours highway... anywhere.

I would guess that your sweet spot is probably 3.5 or 4" of backspace. I didn't realize you're on 15.5" tires. I'm setup with 3.5" of bs with 13.50 Toyos and I don't have any clearance issues. but no coilovers. not sure how that changes clearance in the wheel well. someday I'll see your rig in person and get some perspective!

good luck brother.

Did you have something custom made or is that possibly the comp stinger that I can't find any pictures of?

JE Reel

Just ordered a JE Reel rear drive shaft, 1350, with "canyon crawler" upgrade. Maybe this one will hold up better.

Gunner 877 posts and I loved almost everyone of them. Boy and I thought the guy from Dirty Jobs got a lot of crap thrown at him. What a sweet build. I am enjoying mine at my pace and doing what I want. It's my jeep and my money. i like how you hung in there and are learning how to handle the beast. I really enjoyed your kid sitting shotgun What memories your gonna make with him. Keep it up it was well worth a short afternoons read. Man 30 pages.
