We're thinking about something like that. It can't be too low, maybe not even as low as the frame due to the links hitting, but we'll see.

Are the axles sitting on the frame right now in the pics? Looks like it but can't tell.

It's WIDE. Won't have to worry about flopping sideways.

Pretty much, they're just propped up so that it can roll. The struts still have to go in and that will lift the vehicle up a few inches, most likely 3-4".

It's pretty much like most others, just lower and set underneath the defrost vents. A couple inches had to be cut off the defrost tube that sends the air out and now the air just hits the cage tube and so it's not as effective. I still need to go back and adjust the way the air gets sent out or make myself a small extender for it so it gets around the cage. Even though that's a little bit annoying on a humid day, I definitely recommend it since you have so much more visibility. Besides the defroster mods some of the surrounding plastic had to be cut but you probably don't care much about that. The passenger airbag also needed to be removed.

Struts are mounted, most of the tubework is complete, and the new radiator / fan from Howe will be going in soon:

Damn that thing has crazy clearance. So what's the final ride height gonna be? Guess it's got to go up pretty high to give you any sort of bump travel.

The struts aren't gassed up yet so it will sit maybe 3" higher. The height will be low enough to fit it in a standard garage but I'd have to measure to get the exact number. The struts have a little bit of travel built in as it sits so after gassing up it shouldn't be anything out of the ordinary.

with a YJ you will need the 36" baja bench seat. I am running that and it is super comfy for 1 person but too small if you have 2 people in it. I wish I could have fit the 42" bench.

nice build!

I thought you were not supposed to put the springs/ shocks on the knuckles on 404's, because the weight of the vehicle is what keep the ball joints pressed in place.

I have a set of 404's, and I remember reading something on here about how shock location is important.

Not positive, anyone else hear anything about it.

Looks like they are mounted to the inner C's, and not on the knuckles on the front from the pictures that he posted.

Yeah they're on the inners. I've never heard of needing that mount to keep the joints in place but it's a better mounting surface and isn't subject to all the moving around.

Yeah I guess what I wrote doesn't make since, I must have been tired. I tried finding the thread that I was talking about, but I didn't find it.

Nice build I really like the front tube work, and of coarse the drop down tailgate.
