But he's only running MT/R's. :rofl:

Looks awesome 'goat! Are those rear shock hoops a new product from TnT/Treks? Any info on the rear double triangulation? :eek:

Also... whats your wheelbase?

MoA 03-27-2009 08:44 AM

nice.. im sure your glad to see your rig again =p

whats with the location of the limiting straps? ive never seen them located in the places they are on your rig..

hopefully the d35 can keep up with the abuse.. im actually shocked that thats what rearend your running =X

aztj.. im gonna go out on a limb here and say hes got a stock wheelbase.. look at his gastank in the stock locations and the rear tube fenders arent comp cut or stretched it looks like.. i may be wrong tho =p

like i said on JF.. your rig was one reason ive been debating longarms vs shortarms.. so you'll have to give me some info on which you prefer..

jgano23 03-27-2009 09:21 AM

those are awesome pics. when do we get to see the whole thing?

That means nothing. His skid has a Gen-Right sticker on it, and says "crawler"... so he probably has one of their crawler stretch tanks... and his rear fenders are almost at the edge of the tub. I'm guessing it has a little stretch. Just looking for a measurement. :wavey:

afrats 03-27-2009 03:36 PM

Looks nice. When do we see more?

4Jeepn 03-27-2009 04:19 PM

Looks good. only thing I would check would be the front spring and why its coming off the spring pad, considering there is a limit strap that should not be the case. That and I would rather see it coming down from the top not being sucked upwards.

Thanks for the compliments, the shock hoops are not a new product just something I asked for thats alittle different. I will let you know how the rear handles after Moab. The wheelbase was stretched 3 3/4" the most we could get without changing my gen-right tank for another. Its also sitting on 2" coils now, so when I do post pics of the complete jeep I will be ready for the low rider in the weeds comments.

Not a problem for the spring to come off the spring pad alittle, its really not a concern. The limit straps are there to keep from topping out my shocks. Bact to the coils, if you look at the picks one dropped and the other is up. Anyway we will so find out if we need to tweak anything and I will let you guys know how it performed good or bad and what was done to correct it.

AzTJ 03-27-2009 08:59 PM

Sweet - I love the low and huge tire look. Are those the high-clearance fenders or just stock replacements?

Something to think about. If the spring is ridding up vs staying on the pad, and you flex it, as it is shown in the picture, it may hit the lower bumpstop pad and may come out. if ya use a spring retainer at the bottom then it should stay in the spring cup and even if it comes out up top it will still get guided back as the upper post will act like a guide.

I understand what your saying, but this is not a new to the jeep world system. Its a TnT/Treks system which has been a proven proformer. I will let you know and I will post pics of the coils for you when I get a chance to flex it. Im picking the jeep up saturday morning and will try to get some pics up sunday night.

looking good!

awseome man, how much benefit did you get by relocating the shocks. Im really seriously considering doing exactly that to mine. Im building a 8.8 and am also gonna be adding air bumps to the rear inside the coils.

relocating the shocks to outboard lets you run a longer travel shock, and I feel a more stable feeling. air bumps are nice, maybe in a few month I will look into getting some.

Rawkon 03-28-2009 11:30 PM

cool man ill prolly be copying you in a couple months when im finishied with the 8.8 and get my bumps. your jeep looks awesome.

RatherBNarizona 03-29-2009 12:34 AM

looks badass!

1BLKJP 03-29-2009 02:23 AM

Goat, lovin the rear double triangulated. However I'm curious as to why that spring is coming off the bottom of the perch instead of dropping down?

When you gonna ditch that damn radius arm setup up front? :D

Most likely that infamous spring got hung up when the track bar shifted the axle to the driver side when it when up on the lift.
And ya gotta give me at least a couple of weeks before I decide to change from radius arms to something else. :flipoff:

silver.. out on the trails yesterday a guy with a 5.5'' clayton la lift popped a coil out.. when we were talking at the campground i mentioned limiting straps to him from keeping it from happen.. it popped out the bottom and he had 3'' aluminum bumpstops from his old teraflex lift which shocked me that the coil popped out with those bumpstops on the axle bracket like that.. once the coil comes unseated id consider that "useless" flex.. there isnt ANY weight keeping pressure on the tire to give it traction..

just a heads up.. im sure you already know and have more experience than me.. just dont get the purpose of allowing your coil to unseat like that?

It's cheaper than a full set of coil-overs? :rofl:

Rawkon 03-30-2009 01:20 AM

haha i had a thread a while back about using limit straps for that exact reason. All i got was flack for it. Ive been using limit straps for about a year now with no more coil pop out issues. ive completed 2, 300mile high speed desert trips with no issues and lots of full cycling. this last trip we were hitting 2' - 2.5 foot woop sections a 30 to 40mph. and many a rock trail with lots of flexing and no more coil pop out issues. air bumps are next on my list.

Silver how are you liking those Biltein resi's?? Ive only heard of one bad story of the shock shaft getting cut in half. everyone i know that has em loves them.
