You can get by on a zj pump and steering box with 35s. It will struggle in piles of rocks if you are at a stand still. If you feel the need for assist just tap your current box and add a power steering cooler on the low pressure return side of the plumbing system.

Thanks for the reply . I went ahead and moved on and decided to keep the low pinion . Got the truss today plan on welding it on Friday after work and installing the steering . 99 percent sure the cheap ass freedom
Off road trac bar I got isnít gonna fit the bill so I ordered some 7/8 heims and a trac bar bracket from ruff stuff . Not sure how much of a stretch Iím
Gonna be able to get but the plan is to go as far forward as I can without moving the steering box .

Another question I got tho is how do u maintain drop travel while running a short spring ? I wanna be around 4-4.5 ď of ride height . Do I just get some pipe and extend the bump stop ?

Doing this Iíll lose up travel right? So find the happy medium? This part in a sense has me stumped how guys stay low while keeping good travel numbers .
