Lookin good! How much clearance do you have between the axle and crossmember? I guess its hard to tell with the 33s still on but it seems a little high for my taste, so I'm wondering if it can be done any lower.

Yeah man it could be done much lower. If you use the original jeep coil mounts and do like a 4 inch spring it would prob sit just right on a 33




But Burps, never heard of that. Does it fit the same width??

Well i used a TJ 6 inch coil spring, but i have bu look ballistic ajustable coil buckets so if you look in other pics you can see. And also the coil mounts on the axle are upraised about 4 inches that also brings the truck higher. The lift i have can go higher or lower than that picture shows. Its actually a really nice setup.

same setup on mine for the most part but i am bottomed out. these are 20" 200PPI coils which are a little soft for me. looking at a 24" 250PPI on mine so i will be sitting about as high as you but on 37s

Yeah man i dont know if you remeber but i asked you awhile ago about the SAS and your truck kinda made me want to do it lol. I still havent even driven it yet cause i been waiting on one heim and bung for the steering. But everything seems like it gonna ride good. But one thing but it seems like everything with a D30 ran into but doesnt cause an issue is that the axle is to narrow for the frame so it bows out the coil spring just a little bit. does yours also do this?? If so have you had any issues with it?
