First of I have to give a HUGE thanks to Joe Daro of Absolute Off Road in Phoenix and Mr. Jack Hickman for giving me some great advice and answering A LOT of questions I had about my new suspension. Other than the rogue forum member :flipoff: sneaking into Joe's shop I never worried for a second that my rig wouldn't be 100% better than went it shipped out there. I've learned more about suspensions and suspension geometry through the numerous phone calls to Joe than I did after reading Tiny's entire lift thread. :D

Here's a breakdown of what was done:

RockKrawler 5.5" LA with straight front lowers and long rear uppers with RK shocks.

Currie steering. I had to ditch my ORO U-Turn due to the fact that I had to run a dropped pitman arm with the RK trackbar. I'm sure I'll be happy with the Currie.

Alloy USA front and rear chromoly axle shafts.

Alloy USA 5.13 gears.

Custom "one-off" exhaust. :D

Here's further proof that my Jeep is better than yours :flipoff:

I didn't know you had the ORO steering...what are your thoughts on it now that you have gone to the currie.
I don't know yet. My Jeep is still somewhere between Phoenix and El Paso (I hope :D)

The ORO is for sale and it's a good steering system. It requires the use of a stock pitman arm and it wouldn't work with the RK lift. The two keys to making the ORO work well is a GOOD track back and setting your toe correctly. I spent a lot of time reading over on ROF on how to set it up properly. :D

Isn't that a bit of overkill for the mall? You're going to scare the soccer mom's in their hummers.

That looks great. I'm curious, when you have that much flex, is it still streetable?
