  1. Once my MJ became more of a dedicated trail rig i decided it needed a cage, unfortunately the tube i bought for it is still sitting in my brothers shop instead of on my truck were it can do me some good. After seeing my wife roll one of our XJs, i think any Jeep could benefit from some sort of cage or roll bar, the XJ crushed like someone had stomped a beer can.
  2. I ran 33s and 3.55s for a while, i went to 4.88s which was much better but still could have went deeper, 5.13s weren't available back when i geared it. Even with the 4.88s gears a 5th gear wasn't really needed, 5.13s would have been better. I would go to at least 5.13s or swap axles and go 5.38, 5.38s and 35s would be pretty nice. I currently run 5.38s and 37s with a built 2.5l and an AX15.
  3. That's awesome, this was the first year that I've missed it. I try to make it even if the MJ doesn't come with me, it's usually a pretty good event.
  4. I definitely wouldn't mind a set if you were to print some up.
  5. The part#s are long gone on mine, you can just see that they are Eibach springs, i was planning to eventually use a press and a scale to compress them an inch to see what they are. Problem is that they seem to work ok on my MJ so i haven't cared enough to pull them back off to test them.
  6. That's pretty cool, be awesome to make copies of each page and frame them.
  7. 1990 MJ with 14" ORI struts, the towers are from Bones custom creations, they are bolted and welded to the stiffeners.
  8. The idea here is that this thread will be a compilation of MJ coilover/air shock/ORI strut information. Feel free to add your set ups and/or any information. Here's my MJ with 14" Fox 2.0 coilovers and Eibach springs, currently not sure what spring rates I've got on it. I made simple towers from 1/4" plate which are welded to the frame stiffeners, eventually i want to beef them up, but so far they have worked fine.
  9. It is a handy tool to have. I already took the support off and put it back on when i tapped the steering box, but there really isn't much to it, i basically put the bearing on the sector shaft and started connecting the dots. My front end is already plated so I just tied into the existing plating rather than building a crossbrace like the off the shelf supports use.
  10. I finally built some hoses and machined the spacer to go inside the assist cylinder. I've got all sorts of steering power now. 20190404_172356.mp4
  11. Got the assist ram installed, i need to machine an internal stop for it but the placement looks like it will work pretty good. Also got the tapped steering box put in, which is a pain in the butt with my hidden winch set up. I couldn't get the Bluetooth hydraulic hoses to work, so i took some measurements so i can make a set.
  12. Tapped the last holes so now the sector shaft support is all bolted up, now i get to take it all back off so i can pull the steering box to install the hydro assist.
  13. As the Jeep grew, i just kept trimming away at the flares. I planned to eventually remove them but didn't get around to it till now. It looks good but different, it may take me a while to get use to it.
