I actually was, then saw some of the horribly done mistakes on it and would not let anyone buy it like that, started fixing everything then decided to just go full blown with it. Other shop is currently being sued lol!

It was bad, real bad. All fixed now and love it.

Good call on ditching the bolt on coil overs.
Conventional coils and shocks on the rear?
I would have moved the lower rear arms up on both the axle and frame for better clearance.

I have a ton of clearance and the angles where just to perfect. I ditched the bolt on rebel kit in rear (puts Coilovers at 35 degrees and they hardly ever flex at full flex ) Coil overs will be mounted on axle via brackets (around 2" on bump pad) and they are going thru tub. Frame will be notched and of course be built back up and strengthed. Then brackets on cage will be used for top of coilovers. They will be between 5-6 degrees.

Those spring perches will be all cut off, using king Coilovers with 4" travel bump stops. Like this but my coils will be on out side of frame.

I was speaking of clearance to rocks and ledges hanging the lowers off the bottom of the frame. If you've the axle side up so the control arm bracket is not hanging below the axle and inside the frame the angle would be the same and you gain a lot of clearance mainly for everyday trail running.

If you haven't upgraded your crossmember/skid system yet, you can run something like the Clayton or Artec crossmember that allows the lowers to get tucked in/up more.

I'd recommend going with the CM whose skids you plan to use...

JK HD Crossmember with Link Mounts

My lowers are connected to inside of frame rail, my arns are a 70/30 instead of equal because my rig is a daily driver and crawler. That was the goal anyway lol!!


The skids I was leaning toward artec for sure but shop has plasma cutter ect so they are going to make the skids.

Got frame notched, got Genright girl cell, also integrated cage into frame.

Started to dial in flex, had much more than pic and joints are still centered.

Also got PSC bracket welded on.

I would not trust that PSC mount to that bracket. Lots of leverage there and will likely rip off when you are in a bad spot.

That's just raw it, still gets boxed in, and also gets a gusset. Shop has same bracket on there competion buggy and that thing takes some serious abuse.

The dana 60 spot for PSC that 90% of people use is a lot weaker, they weld the bracket only on one side and also have the PSC in wrong angle creating a lot of stress.

I honestly trust this shop 100% with this, I should have mentioned it being reinforced.

You are using a stock TB bracket? Not a raised bracket of any kind ?

From that shot it looks like your tie rod is going to hit the ram body.

Not going to hit anything, all tested on vehicle, as you will notice the boxed in piece is lowered . It is has 1/4" clearance at full lock To lock. Even tested it fully flexed add it clears perfectly.

Also this puts ir in better plain so much less stress on the ram bracket.

I agree the dana 60 bracket is actually not welded on great, they don't weweld the inside at all. Mine is welded from both sides. Then boxed in to the axle again. No way this will bend. I had it connected to the stock track bar for a year and nothing bent at all. Didn't like the plain it was in. This is thick 1/4" also.

Below is pic where it was with no reinforcement like now.

Got axles painted, diff covers will be taken off and powdercoated, we decided on paint for all arms as it makes touch up much easier since they are going to get mangled lol!
