    I want to stay as narrow as possible since the truck sees alot of tight trails. I will probably end up spring under but want to try to stay spring over and see how well it can do.

    What kind of trails we talking about? I have LT up front and do a lot of trail wheeling as well. The tires don't stick out too far.

    I will probably end up LT. I do alot of different wheeling and trying to fit where a jeep can go can already be difficult. Thats why I figure I will get the back to where I want it, then decision on the front will be made.

    Edit: trails in the woods up north are probably the tighest. Last trip I ended up with all kinds of scratches on the fenders.

    Decided to get the truck ready for a snow wheeling trip. I took the airbumps out (plan on moving them when put the bypasses on). Put on the allpro ubolt flip I've had laying around along with some Daystar polybumps. Now we just need the snow. Hope to start the Secondary shock hoop next week.

    Thanks, the worst part is cutting the sway bar tab off and grinding it clean. Really made me think then next major purchase wont be a tubing bender but should be a plasma cutter.


    No word on when the bypass will be avaliable so for the time being going to have downsouth turn my 2.0 RR from the back into a short enough shock to use for now. Then at least it will have a compresion adjuster. King is suppose to have a shock that will work but I would rather stay fox if I can.

    I dont have the shocks for the hoop yet. The shocks in the pic aren't nitogen charged so they are good for mock up.

    Sorry just assumed.

    I set it up to bottom the airbump just before the shock bottoms. It is all setup as the spring goes flat. I set it up with Icon 3 AAL and then switched to Deaver J59 so I loosing out on about 1" of droop :mad:. The shocks are mounted at 20 degree off vertical measured from ride height. It wasnt to hard to tune the shocks just called Downsouth and gave them the info needed. I wish I woulld have gone for a shorter travel airbump, but they were purchased with future setup more in mind than the current. Adjusting isn't difficult just adjust airbump pressure and clicker on the shock till I got it were I wanted it.

    They can add adjusters to the 2.0 smooth bodies. You have to tell them you want the option but it does cost more.
