    Had to move the rear shock mounts up and thus redo my bumps and straps. Pain in the butt. Ready to ride this weekend and finished just in time.

    I agree there's no way his towers can be that low with those numbers. My coilovers are about an inch from touching the hood, and I've got 1" shorter-than-standard lower eyelets.

    Are TSL SXIIs worth a shit for wheeling in the Rockies? I had a set of 38" TSLs on an old jeep and they were pretty meh in the rocks

    Tire choices in 37...15 are getting thin and I'm not gonna pay $800/ea for new Creepy Crawlers lol

    I wheel with a bunch of dudes that have them here in the SE and I'm not very impressed with them. They work great in soupy clay, but compared to other tires they are nothing special IMO, they don't flex very well aired down from what I see. Just get some 17s and good tires.

    If I was buying a bias ply swamper I would just get the old school bias TSLs.

    I'm a cheap fuck and had 15s and ditched them for 17s because of the lack of tire options.

    I’ll second @slander. For what it’s going to cost you to get good tires on 15’s, you could sell your wheels and get 17’s and have much better and cheaper tire options.

    Made some more progress this past weekend. Axle got moved 1.5" forward. Centered as much as heims would allow. And squares up as much as possible. The clunking and spring binding sounds seem to be gone. Drives much better, but still seems to have some movement over axle. Axle is still 1/2" off center, panhard still isn't perpendicular to frame, it's angled back towards passenger.

    Within the next couple of weeks:
    - Balljoint delete
    - longer lower links and new frame brackets
    - longer panhard and new frame bracket
    - install antirock swaybar on rear

    Nice build! CO mount on your axle seems pretty high and 2.5 x14 CO is 2 inches taller compressed than 2.0 x 14 CO. I have 6" of shock shaft at ride height and 5" up travel. Spring rate is 150 and 250.
