I picked it up with the air jack to try and measure for the shock mount placement. poser flex shots are fun...

as pictured, I am getting 27" off the ground to the bottom of the front and rear tires before the rear springs unseat (the retainers are not built yet). that isn't too bad, as far as I am concerned. my old scrambler had leaves at all four corners, and would get 36" with the same axles, but it had 10" more wheelbase, and a very flexible frame. this frame is very rigid with a 6 point cage, and as such the suspension is doing all the flex.

I'm going to use Fox coilover shocks at all four corners, less the coil portion. They are from an XCL conversion kit. I got the shocks for less than RS9000 Ranchos, so I am going to use them and be able to tune them via the nitrogen charge level.

Looks good, you make me realize how slow my jeep project is really going. Can you clock the t-case more? it does not apear to be clocked, and looks like you have room to twist it around more if you wanted to, that would help get you a flatter skid plate

how that it is together what are the specs on the jeep? Engine, transmission, axles gears, etc.

the case is assemlbed with an Advance Adapters adapter, and it is clocked in the "up" position as the adapter allows. I am going to have clearance issues with the trans pan/drive shaft, I think... it still has tons of ground clearance, so I'll leave it where it is for now.

specs...

350/350/dana 300
front axle (unless I upgrade to a 60) is a chevy 3/4 ton 8 lug that I shortened 8" with a qik lock and 4.56 gears.

rear axle is a hybrid 9" with GM 14 bolt ends to get full float and large shafts with a mini spool and 4.56 gears.

You are very kind, ALan but I just have more time to be online than most people and I'm becoming a good Googler.

I did think the jeep & bear were pretty cool, though.
