I'm not going to recommend it for towing heavy things, but I bought a 2" Reese tube from eBay for $40 shipped, cut a notch in the tubular bumper, welded it to the frame and rear bumper, and then...

That's a good option. It looks like the rear bind height would be ~5.2" and the front ~7", so it would require some bumpstop extensions. I would prefer to collapse into the stock bumpstops to keep a...

Post What coil springs give maximum travel?

What I'm looking for is the maximum travel with short arms, so this would mean coil springs that collapse into the stock bind height (3.75" in the rear) and are 10-12" longer than the bind height...

Question What direction are the front brake pad notches supposed to go?

I'm installing new pads on my 2003 Jeep TJ Rubicon, and I stripped them all down without first looking at the way the notches were going; in addition, they have been replaced numerous times so I'm...

Well, that's rather dumb of O'Reilly's to sell me this part with threads and not either sell me the hard line with it or even mention that this doesn't really 'replace' the old one. I took the hard...

Do I have to replace the hard rear brake line, too?

On the passenger side of my rear axle, the brake line was cut into from some wheelin' and needed to be replaced. I went to the parts store and bought the lines for each side, because I like new...

That's really my objective. $5k should would just barely cover the $2k Full Traction kit and 4x coilovers (budget was for parts only).

These two should be able to get me 12" of travel, I think,...

OP here. I couldn't have said it better myself; that's exactly it. I have a stock Rubicon, specing out how close I can get to a 12" travel suspension system with as low a ride height as I can manage...

Thank you for actually addressing my question in a reasonable manner!!! With that in mind, say 11"-14" of travel, how do I determine the travel a lift kit offers? (before buying it and mounting it,...

Agreed, for that level of performance (monster truck, trophy truck, professional desert racer) whatever you would be left with would hardly be a Jeep TJ anymore.

However, given that someone...

Alright, so as an approximation, should anyone else be looking for roughly the same thing as I was:

The stock mount is just about parallel with the top of the frame rail, which is ~4". If these...
