No protection on the coolers. Never had a problem in the 2 years they have been mounted there.

Plug, in order for your angled link to work you have to add a second location point at the front to keep it from moving side to side.
Think it's around 22"s. It's still at the shop, will be able to work on it again sun, and will check the frame height then.

Frame height is 22 1/4"s on the 37's. Plugged the final numbers into the 3 link calculator, it says 9.42 degrees oversteer.

Well, tried out the new rear suspension a little bit today. Had to drag out one of my guys. He thought it wasn't to muddy to service the windmachine. I think I need bigger mud flaps.

All washed and cleaned. New suspension did good. Rear driveline still in it. That was the main reason for the rear links. Had bad axle wrap. Had put a antiwrap bar on it when the leaves where in it, but I ended up tearing it off the axle tube. I winched the truck out of the hole, and had to drag him all the way out in reverse. Took five minutes to get the truck out, and 2 hours of cleaning. The rear bumpstops came in today, so I've need to get those mounted in. Went with Timbrens for the rear. Installed some fox air bumps in the front a couple of weeks ago. I'll post up pics of the front and rear when I get the rear mounted in. Also need to put a limit strap on the rear still. It's fine with the coils bolted top and bottom, but if I lose the spring retainers the rear will have to much droop that the driveline will bind.

As promised, here are the pics of my bumpstops. Fox Air bumps up front. Also added some bumpstops above the steering cylinder. Reason for those are to keep the steering ram out of the engine pulleys when I decide to jump it again. The rear I used Timkren bumpstops, they are actually overload springs, but work well as bumpstops. They will compress a couple of inches, so they are kind of progressive. Built a extension for them, and then mounted them inside the coils. I needed them that low to keep the upper link out of the crossmember. Also got some new rocklights in. They are pretty sweet. Has a strobe feature and a wireless controller. Best of all they were FREE.

Nice.

Somebody had posted in general about how they redid thier timbren bumpstop mounting(that looked identical to yours) because it destroyed them. I think it was Lucas Murphy or veteboy. If I remeber right they mounted the timbren to the axle and put a smiley shaped piece on the extention.

I like that yours are inside the coil. I am just running stock bumps off an s10 blazer. This is the route I took.

Took it to Hollister last weekend and was able to work the new steering, and rear suspension pretty hard. Preformed great. The suspension handled great. Was very predictable, and as stable as it was with the leaves. Just no more axle wrap. Steering did good too. Did bend a steering stop though. That's about it though. Very happy with the way it turned out.

Starting to get the parts together to link the front. Picked up some used 14" swayaway coilovers yesterday. All charged up and ready to go. Not sure on the springs rates though. I'll get them installed and see how things look.

Can you really put that kind of shock absorber in a Scout?

I was told that they would bolt right into the factory mounts, and that the coils would help with load capacity. Checked them out alittle better today. A friend picked them up for me for another friend. They are actually 14" co's, which will work better for me anyway. The lower springs are stamped with 250#s, still don't know what the uppers are rated at. Still up in the air on how I'm going to link the front. I need to flex it out and see where I can mount the links. I want to stay away from a track bar, but I don't think that I can triangulate the links the way I need to with the engine as close to the axle as it is.

No tech, added to the rear section of the cage. Wanted more protecton for when my daughter is riding in the back. Also had a new bikini top made. The old one was pretty tore up. The only problem with the cage the way it is now, is that I can't fit the spare tire through the cage to fit it inside the bed anymore.
