I really like your rig......great job!

My .02 is go with coilovers. If you have the $500 to invest, you will be very happy with the end results.

I second the "more pics" comment!

Looks like you've got some creative ideas & nice fab work, so a custom suspension shouldn't be that difficult for 'ya. Bushings are gonna cost 'ya as much as a coilover. I'd buy prefabbed suspension tabs if I did it again. Lets see a close up of those 8 luggers & what's the specs on your rig?

What springs are on there right now? I am going with the KISS theory. I plan on using leaf springs all around. Instead of building a 4 link, get some soft ass springs. I like the Cherokee springs as well as F150 springs at all corners. If I was to link it up, I would go with a 1/4 ellip setup. All in all, you have a SUPER clean rig there.

Coil over kit or coil springs w / seperate shocks? The coil over kit would be easier to make & sell --> less bracketry. Tried a search on "Hannah Quality" & all I came up with was pix of Darryl Hannah

or building a new home. well its a 5.0ho/zf 5 spd/ dana 300 with low max 4:1 and 32 front and rear outputs. 60s front and rear with arb's. 37 krawlers. the cage will be scrapped for a new one that fits better. i agree on the kiss idea flatty but as it is the rears are already reversed and moved bach 4 inches to get me out to 101". also useing 44044's minus the 3rd leaf in front. the damn thing is insanley fast and crawls sweet. just want the suspension to work right it unloads way too easy right now. as for prefab parts whats the fun in that. cant promote the business if its a bolt up rig. but may have to develope a kit also. schaffer can use mine all they want i dont drive it at the moment. as for pics ill get some up for ya guys. take them this weekend, thanks for all the positive feedback. ill keep ya up to date.
