Perhaps you should consider hoops and coilovers...

Oldguy 02-15-2012 11:07 PM

They'd look kinda cool sticking out through your fenders...

Oldguy 02-15-2012 11:09 PM

The JeepFrogs would be sooooooooooo jealous...

Oldguy 02-15-2012 11:15 PM

Oldguy 02-15-2012 11:19 PM

No, on second thought, Kaufman might have proposed to Topher yesterday...

NO it shall not go quietly into the night... hahahhaha.... Well updates on my wife (ya my jeep, i cant afford an actual women)

Beadlocks will be here next week.
new spring rate change
relocated the shocks for a little smoother articulation
Added some underbody armor
ditched the broke ass factory driveshafts
flipped the draglink and moved the front trackbar
working on a complete over kill onboard air system
Hydraulic bump stops front and rear
Oh ya, the best part!!!!!! new subwoofer and 5 channel amp, I can now rock my tunes yo!

wanderlust 02-16-2012 07:59 PM

coilovers are in my crystal ball.. working out options in my mind. front is no problem, rear... well that is an issue.. most of the current commercial kits do not jive with my rear axle position and arm setup..

wanderlust 02-16-2012 08:00 PM

so, been sketching and doing math :banghead:.. mocked up a few ideas but nothing has really seemed to make me happy, at least with out cutting holes in my floor

wanderlust 02-16-2012 08:09 PM

cant get the jeep to tall, Angus wont be able to jump in it.

Dude, you are twisted, but in a good way :thumb:

You were running a stock driveshaft on a four link?????
I'm surprised that all you were dropping was springs :rolleyes:

Yeah, I mean, after all, you are building one major slinky...:rolleyes:

front is no problem,

rear... well that is an issue.. most of the current commercial kits do not jive with my rear axle position and arm setup..

Well, you said you have that fancy tube bender, put it to work :thumb:

Tell me about it, I'm going to send myself to the funny farm trying to come up with an arm ratio that gives me a reasonable pinion angle deflection. One side I get rise, other side drop, problem is there is no middle that I can find. If I could figure out an equation to represent the bloody mess, I could take the derivative and I should have it. Hah! Not only is my body old and feeble, so is my brain :nonono:

Where in the heck did you come up with that??? I thought I was the only one demented enough to think about turning a Jeep into a street rod...

Cuz you can?

I mean these rigs have class. They are not some buy in a box kit.

Oldguy 02-16-2012 11:05 PM

Hey Chad, are you paying attention?

I'll bet :D Does that mean I'll soon have your MTR's in my hot little fists?

I'll also bet those beadlocks set you back a pretty penny...
