spring over, spring under, just run it stock????
ok so on never ending project dd trail slayin yj i have decided to do some sort of lift and was wanting input on pros and cons of both spring over and spring under, cost and level of involvment, has anyone done this and can i do it in a weekend either way.. or can i just wheel the piss out of it as is with a 2inch shackle lift...i have 31's bfg ats' but i want some 33s' or 35s' so any input would kick arse:include:

soa is the only way, you know it. you can do it in a weekend, i usually do, but it's a lot of work w/ sye and all.

do i have to sye... that adds so much money onto it
i heard that a kit, rubicon express, is around 300 for new, thick spring mounts and all the other little goodies involved in it, but the bare minimum for a sye is like 360 something with new drive shaft and all...bummer i need money, send me some, i am starting a donation pot,
there is a raffle prize for the winner ( or highest donater). they get lucky boots, and an old pair of chuck talors, and possibly a 1963 Yamaha motorcycle!!! lol

hey dave, can i use d-ring shackes and bolt them on the front or large hooks as tow points, do they need to be centered over the frame or can i have them out on the edge???

jpdocdave 05-17-2008 06:29 PM

d rings are fine, or hooks. i don't think it matters where as long as they're bolted to the frame or bumper that is bolted to frame
