    Erik, while I was taking pics, I thought of you and your new shock setup. So I looked at mine. It looks like I need to do something about the front of my Jeep. The picture speaks very loudly. Extended bumpstops. Aftermarket shock tower. Here have a look:

    Having a friend with a plasma cutter....priceless also! Made short work of cutting off the old shock mounts. I woulda spent two hours with a cutoff wheel doing that....lol.

    Did Rick do a U-bolt flip by himself??
    Nope, Jim cut the original shock mounts off, and I'm hoping we can weld proper shock mounts to the axle tube this weekend. But, I did the install, pretty straightforward. Find some Dodge spring plates in the junkyard, hack the shock mounts off em, and then you just need to have the correct square ubolts bent. I did mine in 9/16" rather than 1/2", much beefier. I need to get the shock situation straightened out though, I had to half #^@ it together Friday night cuz I gots no welder mang. Ask Brian...lol. It worked for the weekend though. I will post some pics of it once I can do it before it's dark out, the pics dont turn out well in the dark....

    Actually you use the Dodge 1/2 ton pickup or Ramcharger ones either works . We plasma cut the original shock mounts off the boneyard donors .

    i hope
    i like the thought of that one. it will make thngs much cleaner under there
    Oh yes it does and less stuff hanging down. I bought mine from AP because it wasn't that much more and I ordered my springs though them.
