If he had bigger tires, he'd have to open the rear door to get full stuff. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

It was Developed in Western Australia. I first saw it at a local 4x4 show about 10 years ago. I think the technology was bought out tenneco which also own Rancho and other brands. The last email I got from them indicated that first after-market Kinetic program is being designed to fit the Jeep Wrangler TJ platform (MY97-01). The first systems are scheduled to be available around early March this year. I havn't heard if it is available or not !

look at
Kinetic suspesion

From what I can remember the hilix they did a conversion on, only had hydrolic type shocks with link arms (no springs). All the shock are linked together so when one wheel is pushed up the fluid is pushed into the other side to push the wheel down. This was also controlled with a joystick from within the cabin. So it was possible to lean the vechile over, etc

It was pretty impressive, but I have still yet to see any kits being available.

There must not be any low-hanging branches in Aussie-land. Otherwise, his snorkel would'nt have lasted this long...

Why is it that every vehicle I see from australia is running 31-32" Allterrains offroad <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0"> I've SEEN pics of aussie rigs running 35+" tires, but that seems to be very rare over there, or am I just not paying attention?</font>

can you say rip off...........sikfj is here with me now and tells me that a 38x12.5 will run you around 600 dollars

for a pricing.

a set of 35 inch bfg will run you around 1000 dollars and the swampers are not load or speed rated so are illegal.

laws are different from state to state but generally you cant go over an inch wider or higher than the biggest tyre offered from the manufacture.

I see. Oh... and - that sucks. I have the new petersen's issue here in front of me now, and they covered an event in Australia. They mentioned that most of the guys there drove there rigs daily.

You'd think that there would be a lot of people building trail-only rigs in a place where 31x10.50s are pretty much the limit for a street rig. My 33s never seem big enough when I leave the asphalt, and I know I'll be thinking the same thing when I finish the SAS and mount up the 35" MT/Rs...</font>
