First a little background.
78 CJ7 304/ TH400/ Dana 300/ Scout 44's with chromo axles and 5.13 ratio. rear spool front detroit. Now on to the next phase. My plans are as follows.

Getting ready to start gathering parts. Thought I would get some input.

Rear:
BTF wheelbase stretch kit
Stock new XJ springs SOA
Comp cut rear quarters
Traction bar of some sort. What's a good one :confused:
Switch over to propane with 2 clear forklift tanks behind the rear seat.
At this time I will also replace all of the frame from the crossmember back as it is rusted out and severly bent after the last outing.

Front:
Use stock YJ springs SOA
Full high steer is already done.

What kind and length of shocks should I be looking at with this setup

I am definitely open to suggestion on any of the above.

Prolly go with a 37" tire and not hammer it with the front wheels turned:nuke:

It presently has a spring under RE 4.5" lift I will be removing. Hope to gain significant suspension travel:smokin:
