aTX427 From what I read about outboarding, the Ford shock towers will interfere at full flex, which is why I selected the Poly kit. It was between Pply and Genright. Poly was a bit less expensive, but in hindsight I think the Genright has a wider upper mount for better flex capability for Jeeps without lift. If you notice, I have my rear shocks upside down to gain additional clearance. I'll try to take some additional pictures. The work by the way, was done by KrawlTex in Austin.

jameslee97206 Ford towers are the least expensive route. I bought 4 at $23 a piece.

Brew Love the color of your Jeep, looks like you just rolled out of Baghdad.

Moabrubi Nice work, who's towers? I've been looking at the Ford shock towers and the Poly ones as well. I haven't done much research yet.

Do I see a coil correction kit on there too? I plan on doing both of these when I do my lift.

jameslee97206 Looks titty, what did you use for lower shock mounts?

Out boarded my shocks

Just got my TJ back from a rear upper spring relocation and outboarding my shocks. I picked up about a foot of static travel in the rear. Not sure if it is a good measurement, but I ha 32" to the bottom of my tire in the am 34" in the rear.
