ok so that was fucking weird. some how last night when i was pulling a plug i accidentally disconnected the wire on the middle cylinder, pass side, that connects to the coil. took me a few to figure out why it was running on 5 cylinders. when i saw the arcing cable i put two and two together. no damage done but buttoned it up and ill be damned the thing is running smoother than before now. i wonder how ling that was loose and not making a good connection fuck me right?

no. this is independent. the intermediate nature of the knock rules out a lot of things luckily. but it runs smoother so there is that. imma borrow a UG and see if even though it hasnt thrown a code, there might be one pending.

I just think if your going sas, you would want to stay low and maintain as much droop as possible. Uptravel isnt really necessary. A good shock or coil setup will handle bumps just fine... Dont need to be jacked up 4' in the air to handle bumps. Also sas inst meant for hauling ass over bumps

Like I said, it is dependent on how you plan to use it. Your statement makes sense if it's strictly a rock crawler.

What would be the benefit from a really tall solid axle setup?

I never said that a really tall axle setup is what I'd do.

I would just prefer something taller than the one pictured so I can drive it on the highway.

Just depends on what you want to use it for.

Low and wide works great for rack crawling buggies and such.

slightly taller to allow for more uptravel would be better for a highway capable rig.

Something really tall would be great for mudding.

Back to my original statement again, just depends on what you plan to use it for. There is not ultimate setup that works best for everything.

I guess our definitions on tall are different. I'm not talking about something huge. Just something with a little more uptravel than the truck pictured...

Really though, for that truck I'd just run smaller tires to allow more room and be done with it.

I think he was referring to having more than a couple inches of up travel so you don't hit the bump stops every time there is a bump in the road. Though with that much sidewall your tires should soak up a lot of the bumps anyway.



Konsta wants to run a 30" frame height on 44's. Basically max ground clearance so he doesn't have issue climbing ledges and clearing big ass rocks.

Envision something like this but with much bigger rocks or like say the waterfall at the end of Helldorado.



He also wants a lot of clearance for snow wheeling as well. I think he likes snow wheeling more than rock crawling. haha Probably throw some mudding in there as well until he gets his other rig built.
