They're TALL, but I like it. Definitely LOVE the added wheelbase with the extra height and width, it feels very stable. they actually ride really sweet too, not stiff at all. I can't wait to get them broke in, I can tell they'll flex like a sonofab!tch. Last night I got one tire about 40" in the air but I could tell they needed to be broke in to really flex well (like any leaf spring).

As it stands now I'm 84" tall and 84" wide, with about a 100" wheelbase.

What backspacing did you go with?

I had a full width 44 with 38.5" SX's and 3 5/8" BS and was 85" wide.

Now with full width 60 2.5" BS and 39.5" TSL's I am 89"

Those springs will loosen up some after a few trips.

I have 3.5" backspacing and 38x12.5 TSLs. I'm sure that with 38.5x14.5 SXs I'd be very close to 85-6" due to the sidewall buldge

I still have a 2" BL that I'm too lazy to remove (after spending 3 month in the garage working I want to stop ) My shackle are 5.75" hole to hole to allow for a 20 degree shackle angle.

Thanks you bitch ass little newbie. You have your own rig or do you just ride the coat tails of others dumbf@ck.

I used a wagoneer pitman arm for the extra length over a YJ. The angle isn't that bad at all. I could get a waggie drop pitman for looks (drag link angle) but I'll see how this works out first. Is that OK with you? By the way it turns lock to lock and also turns well while flexed, so why does it suck considering it performs properly
