so you're going to do a 4-link/trailing arm deal now.. and the arms are on top of the axle tube?



are you triangulating the lowers? under the t-case is where they meet?

Never measured but my shit sat way low in the rear. Awesome prerunner stance, bullshit for a jeep

Yes, triangulated lowers. Just figured out tonight Iíll have to lower all my mounts but Iíll have a flat belly at 24Ē. Rear should be 10 and 10 up and down. Getting about 2.5 more inches of wheelbase. This is all with a full tub, 4 seater kids in back seat

How far below your floorboards is your trans pan????



did you end up cutting into the floor to fit the trans and atlas??



--thanks for everything....



BTW, you gonna make the farm show this year? it's coming up Feb 11-13......



my daughter and I are going probably the 11th (tuesday).... watching the weather incase the wednesday is better..... it rained on us last year.!

--Sherpa


Update, I mounted them this afternoon and the beads were actually perfect on the tmi,s. We shall see how it plays out. With the coopers I had to torque them about 4 lbs more to get them to seal. They seemed to center way easier than the stt pros too, even though there wasnít anything really close to the bead lock ring to start from. The bead protector ring is a bit further away than the coopers were. They also seem QUITE a bit softer than the coopers, which in mu opinion were pretty soft for a dot tire.

sickboyboone Well I told my wife that out of all my considerations, the one I wanted was also the most expensive. She said Iím a Sagittarius and I like expensive shit.

92 Green YJ My Bias Treps are still stacked up on a pallet under a tarp. Can’t speak to their performance as of yet but they sure do look aggressive. Can’t wait to actually get them bolted on.

Yeah just like a more aggressive sidewall. Really want treps. Not concerned about sticky so much I been doing a lot more higher speed stuff than crawling. But warranty would be nice. Iím really just pissed all these are splitting. I havenít ever blown a tire in 26 years, and all 5 have went bad the same way
