Ibuildembig I did one on my first YJ about 13 years ago and I hated it. It darted real bad when you got on the brakes and the first time I got the front axle off the ground it pulled the driveshaft out of the splines. Since going back to standard stuff I have yet to have an issue.

Wfo concepts is a great shop. They are a short drive from me and have excellent customer service. I'd highly recommend them to anyone.

If I remember correctly, their thoughts were that it causes less suspension unloading while climbing and ultimately, it results in more traction when climbing obstacles due to the forward shackle forcing the tire into the obstacle versus a shackle in the rear pushing a tire away from
The obstacle.
Couldn't find the edit function in the app. I think my jibberish is due to lack of sleep and the fact that my iPhone always knows best when it comes to grammar.
