Text me your number so I can give you a call. I was just getting ready to build my own stock class xj for next Koh and VORRA. I work on 4400 cars currently with UFO Fab.

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing stock class KOH XJ build

I have axles suspension and a full 2-3 drivetrains lying around for build and extra parts. But I figured I'd look around for a tag Koh chassis first. My buddy Casey sent me over here.

I was wondering but I wasn't going to throw anyone under the bus.

Haha yeh, I remembered seeing the thread "end" with the shell at Richards shop and Spencer was talking about building a car but wanting to start with a teched cage.

I haven't met you Cal but you've wheeled with one of our good friends at SierraFEST a few years back and let him drive this thing I think. Jeepinseal aka John Sheahan.

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing stock class KOH XJ build

Yeah I know John, he's a good guy. He and Pat helped me move once, and we ended up heading down to Hollister for a day.

We got some pretty wicked air at that place.

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing stock class KOH XJ build

the bronco leaf springs were pretty interesting the a pretty elegant solution to avoid smacking the shackle on the crossmember/bumper/every rock ever.

How's the ride/performance on the unicorn with the G9s compare to racecar with the G80s, (realizing they are built to do different things)?

My RE leaves are getting pretty flat now that they are almost 15 years old. Planning to go with Deavers, but wouldn't mind squeezing a longer leaf in. Just not convinced I wanna go through the effort to rework the mount for a jeep that spends most of its time parked and only a few weekends a year in the dirt. I'll likely go G9s and 5100s and call it a day after I finish plating the rear rails.

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing stock class KOH XJ build

You know, the unicorn has only ever been on pavement to date, and the G80's were only driven on the dirt, so i can't really compare.

You really can't go wrong with G9's, though. We were just trying to squeeze that extra little bit out.

I figured that's what you would say, and I think for the extra work to fit the longer spring, for my style of wheeling likely wont pay dividends. Especially with all the options available now for slightly extending wheelbase with anti-wrap perches with some adjustment built in, the ironrock offroad front spring mounts (pretty similar to what you guys came up with for your front springs and similar to the synergy/poly brackets), combine with some shackle relocators and you can get a lot of flexibility with moving the rear axle back a few inches to dial it in.

thanks for the input, will be interesting to hear your perspective when you do get the unicorn into the dirt. Probably not gonna do as much go fast stuff I would guess.
