The shackle only gives about two inches of lift. (these are heavy duty, the old ones were rusted) A springover gives five. If i sprung over the rear, then I would have to lift the front when that is done, then I need 35s since my 33s are now too small... You see where this is going? Trust me, I had new spring plates, ready to spring over the rear, but there is way more that would need to be done on the front, and I like how it sits now. Nice and low(lowish, compared to stock)

Maybe I will just paint the shackle black so nobody notices it. Grey powder coat stands out when everything else is black.

Surprised Paul didn't call it ghey since it doesn't have a 460. Very cool though. I'd think that thing could compete with any comparable XJ and be more luxurious along the way. What kinda flex does that thing have?

I have never tried, since thats not its purpose... There is no sway bar up front, so it would be better than stock, maybe I could find someplace around here to test it out.

I knew flexing out and rock crawling wasn't it's purpose...but I figured you'd still wanna know what it's limitations are...some of those expedition trails can get gnarly. Hell, I've even flexed out the rigs in my sig and everyone already knows there'd be more frame flex than suspension flex...hahahaha,

I will see what I can find. It will be hard to climb something in 2wd, though...

Thats why I am planning on starting the transfercase swap today.
