haha yes!! Jacobs ranger is a testament to knowing how to drive and listening to a spotter.. He kept with me, spooled front posi/open rear, 3 other jeeps locked f/r and a buggy with welded axles..

thank you sir. i will tell this though, ive followed them for a long time and just gave er hell but the only thing that ever held me back was those dang torsion bar hangars. now that i dont have those things, i walked over alot of what i used to struggle with. just whatever you do, be sure to get a belly skid or everything is gonna be toast.


i love reppin the ifs. i hate to say it but it might be around a little bit longer than i thought it was going to be(sorry casey). not sure when im gonna get to sas it. so for now im just gonna grab some new coils and continue to rep up the ifs

prolly 800#

im sittin a little lower than i was with the torsion bars. and if i crank on these coils anymore they will start to bottom out and be stiff ride with little uptravel. prolly will go 800# and just tune them really well to get ride height/flex that i want. or i may look at getting a 750# longer coil. that way i can tune it a bit more. not sure though, still need to do my research

I think with the Fox's you should be able to run a 14" coil but the prices sky rocket between a 12 and 14" coil IIRC..

That ranger impresses the hell out of everyone who see's it wheel.

Matt and Jacob looks like you guys had a blast. I have heard that they are trying to get some property in the same area to open another offroad park.

*nudged*

i go on vacation next week so after that i start on them. coilovers were by far one of the BEST decisions ever. but im glad i have the superlift crossmembers because after seeing the rcd quality, they wouldnt have held up

I know I've beat on the rcd crossmember some and it's held up alright. But I've never been to a place like that. lol

I always thought the superlift crossmember looked weaker. But I've never seen one in person.

Where are the rest of the pics??

no the SL corssmembers are freakin sturdy as hell. fully boxed in and litterally been dragged across rocks on just them and they have help up fine. superlift makes a great lift. i didnt mind the torsion bar hangars until i started wheelin hard. for just muddin, they never got in the way or anything. but once i got into rock crawling, coilovers were def a must
