I just put on the Ford F250 shock towers and 9012's on the front of the jeep. Super easy swap! Drill two 1/2" holes through the frame and bolt the suckers on. They fit absolutely perfect. The angle just misses the fender at the highest point.The shock towers were $11 ea. from the ford dealership.

I also swapped in six leaf YJ rear springs on all four corners. These springs, 9012's in the front, and 9112's in the rear scored me a 821 on a 30 degree ramp last weekend.

I think putting 9012's in the rear somehow with a long spline drive shaft should get me near 1000.

This is a great swap for a CJ!

No tubes inside the frame. It's holding up fine now, but I am planning on putting a reinforcing plate on the back side in the near future.

The F250 Shock Towers are a great upgrade to make... Looks like you got a great price on them too! I got mine from a wrecking yard for $9 each, and I had to pull them myself! <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

I called the wrecking yard here first and they wanted $25 ea.! I laughed and said that the Ford Dealership only wanted $11 ea. brand new. Then the guy then offered me $25 for the used pair. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

Hmmmm.....hard decision
