If you would have looked on the very first page of the hardcore section, you would have seen a big ass thread about hardcore jeeps with leaf springs. Go away.

You're a day early bud.
I know... :D

Oh, you mean the one with all the top heavy ones... :flipoff2: I've looked at every jeep on that thread, but thanks. Not really low COG ones...

You could get pretty low with some stock leaves SUA. I'd install some lift blocks too.


That'll get you low for sure.
Yup, and probably just use some 2x4's for bump stops and then skinny pedal all the way. Hahaha. :shaking:

I was actually looking for someone to post up a pic of their jeep on leafs claiming to have the lowest COG with the largest tires... Kinda like a contest. :grinpimp:

I am going to give my opinion even though he didn't ask for it.How low are you trying to go?Too low and you drag everywhere.Try to keep the belly around 22" or so.I am at 22" to lowest point on 38's.SOA on 47" chevy front springs in front and a hybrid YJ pack SOA in the rear.It often drags.I am planning on going to 42's so that should get it up where I want it.If you build wide it won't be top heavy.

It depends on your definition of "low" and that depends on the decade you're dealing with. Up until the last few years I'd say all of us running 38-42" tall tires with just a SOA lift is pretty low. I measured mine out and I'm only at 6.5" of suspension lift with 42" tall tires. My Jeep still fits through my garage door as long as the top is folded down. Now that might not be crazy low by the modern day standard, but a lot of that IMHO is just fad anyways. I am planning on lowering my Jeep down a few inches but as it stands its been plenty stable for me.

If I remember right, we measured 24 or 26 to the belly on my YJ on 43's. Could have gotten the front lower easilly, but don't know how we could get the rear any lower. Frenched the springs and everything in the rear.

Anybody remember the 80's when you needed 12" of lift and 4 shocks on every corner just for 35's? :D

Thats about where I want to be. I don't want anything less than 24" of belly height. You can have your Jeep as close to the ground as you want, but its pointless if you just get hung up on anything bigger than a speed bump or healthy curb.

Well said Duthvdub, I hope this doesn't turn into another lame ass thread with people taking pictures of their rigs sitting on the bumps. How about seing some low COG rigs with minimum 4" to the bumps and big tires.

We have 2 or 3 to the bump and then 4 inches of bump travel in the front. I think we have 4 to the bump in the rear and then 2 inches of bump travel.

Well played :smokin:

I personally don't know of any Super Low Leaf Sprung Jeeps, but seems like a legitimate tread to me.

Good job hanging on, I think the flamethrowers are running low on fuel.
