Re: XJ Buildup III

That's a good looking rig there man. Can't wait to see some good flex pics. I really like those moabs with that color XJ. Looks sharp.

Thank you all for the compliments. I really liked how the Moabs worked on my last XJ, the 285/75/16 is a good fit for an XJ wheelwell, too.

Re: XJ Buildup III

Made some progress last week on the beefed HP 30.



Got the ball joints installed and was surprise how well my cheap HF press worked.





SBS Plate welds smoothed, primed and finished.


Closeup of the RE SuperRide bushings used in the TnT truss


Trimmed stock shock mount, LCA gusset and new shock mount placement

Re: XJ Buildup III

Was curious... Did you source the Super-Ride bushings? Why those instead of Super-Flex?

Re: XJ Buildup III

I asked Bob at TnT about the bushings before ordering. He indicated that the SuperRide units perform well and hold up to flexing too, so I'm going on of his recommendation. They ship all the Y arm kits with these at the axle end and Summit flex joints at the crossmember.

Re: XJ Buildup III

looks awesome, man. Very detailed work.

I took those little rotor protector plates off mine because they trap gravel and make horrible noises...
