Update:

This past weekend we put in the new Brakes in prep for the swap, too out the front DS for new U-joints and also put the new Tires/Rims on.


90* Bracket, pretty slick to go with the Titan Rear Lines.

Had a busy weekend, got the whole Lift in and the Front Bumper, riding about 40" from Ground to Fender most the way around, well see how it settles with Skids, Sliders and all. Took a time laps of the whole weekends work which I'll try and have done in the next day or two.

Front: Moog Titan LCAs, Cam Bolts, New CVs, fresh Gear Oil for the M205, Radflo Remote Res 2.5" 650# Coil Overs, SPC Titan UCAs, Mood Tire Rod Ends, and put the Front DS back in.

Rear: Alcan 3.5" 450# Leafs, 4* Steel Shims, PRG U-bolt Flip Kit, Spider Track Spacers, and new Rear U-joint.

Kept the Stock Shackles which I'm regretting, once it settles and we have the Rear Carrier on, I know its going to be lower than the Front, which I can't adjust any lower so... Ordered some PRG Shackles. Getting the Stock Shackles out of the Spring Bushings is going to be fun.... :D

Before and After, its about a 2" Drop between Slabs in the After Photo.


Zip Ties for now till I come up with something better;

I like the looks of the blacked-out steelies & no-roof rack... Looks "Official" haha.

Do you have a body lift also or something? Trying to figure out where "5.5 inches" of lift number comes from. When I got my Titan-Radflo 2.5's they came preset at like 1.5" of lift over stock, so I'm curious as to why you can't lower yours much.

I was at 3.5" of lift and I was sitting at 38.5 in the rear (stock is 35.6) and 37.75 in the front (stock is 34.25) with 31.8" Hankook dynapros (second season). If you add a decent 33" tire you can for sure get to 39-40".

Did a day trip down into the Oyhees, went up to Blacks Hill and did a shot little technical trail called Lost Trail.

Weather was spectacular, clear, very little haze and in the low 80s. Hill sides were covered in wild flowers, air smelled sweet like honey.



Lost Trail is always fun, has a little something for everyone. Im thoughrly impressed with the new Suspension set up. Tons of flex Front and Rear, going to try and get more pics next time.




Not quite Flexed out all the way but close.

What length Radflos do you have in the back? I was 'mirin your flex in your TOTM pic
Honestly I don't remember, next time its on a lift Ill measure them. I think they might be just a tad short for full drop. I have a few more pics from that trip to post where you can see the flex even better.

I like the way that bumper looks. How do you feel about the P&P? What was the lead time on it?
Personally I love it, I think it was their second one so their newer ones are a bit more refined. Wait time wasn't long 3/4 weeks I think. Only thing I with i would have done different with it now i have had it is link the bumper with the sliders aussie style
