  1. Definitely a good day out!

    Got it Matt. I think I'll only need two of them now, probably going to go a different route when I do the front. I'll try sending you a pm.

    Wow, guess I should update this, lol. I did get the new coils and track bar installed. Next on my list is to out board the rear shocks so I can install some much longer (12.5" travel compared to the 8" on it now) ones. I'll be using some Ford shock towers, which I need to get from @Powerram . They need to be frenched into the frame, which requires cutting a half decent chunk out and welding the new shock towers in.

    LF late 80's - early 90's F250 shock towers

    This is what I'll be using them for in the rear: https://www.stu-offroad.com//suspension/rearshock/rearshock-1.htm

    The condition isn't too important as they'll be getting cut up some, then welded into my frame (outboarding the rear shocks, and might be changing the front shock mounts to use longer shocks). I could take them off (unless you're really bored, lol), and a case of Keiths sounds like a good payment to me. I'm in no rush what so ever, just wanting to start getting everything I need for this project. I could take a run out just about any weekend (except this one) to check them out.

    Perfect, let me know how much you want for them.

    Thanks Matt!
  8. If anyone knows of any late 80's - early 90's F250's that are being scrapped please let me know. I'm looking for 2 or 4 front shock towers.

    I pulled the trigger on a new set of 3.5" Rock Krawler triple rate springs for the front. This will get rid of the ZJ coils and 2" coil spacer, and give me the little extra lift that I'm after. They're scheduled to be delivered Friday, and I'm hoping they'll make it for the long weekend so I can get them and the JKS track bar installed.

    I've been slacking, but will start posting our run info here and on Facebook. It would be great to see you out again Eugene!

    Damn, I'm really slacking on updates here! So, the Jeep is now sitting on 35's (won 5 General Grabber X3's at the Valley Invasion), has new rear springs installed (4" Rough Country), a 1.25" body lift and a 1" motor mount lift, installed LED headlights and ordered a JKS adjustable front track bar.
  13. It should be sitting on the 35's then, but it might not be ready to wheel. I've gotta order a ZJ tie rod for it (surprised I haven't bent the stock one yet), and a body lift to clear the tires. As long as the Jeep is ready, I have the OK from the wife. 😉
