I plan on doing this, but most probably not until the winter, so don't have too much to offer right now.
Relocating the gas tank will be the first job, GenRight offer a tank that fits at the back (requires removal of tool/storage thing) and that is one solution I'm considering. I'll have move my coilovers over the axle too, most probably up into the trunk area.
I plan on triangulated upper arms and straight lowers at the rear. The uppers will run to a truss and the inside of the frame rails, the lowers will run from the side of the axle to the frame, haven't decided if inside or outside the frame yet, but they will mount at the centerline of the tubes, so there will be nothing hanging down below the axle at all.
Arms will be DOM with a LH thread Johnny joint at one end, and RH thread Johnny joint at the other, so I can rotate the DOM to adjust.
There are a few suspension geometry calculators around that will help with anti squat calculations etc.
Be interested in seeing what anyone else has done...
I like the look of trusses and a custom triangulated 4-link. Theres just something about them to me. I had the same idea on the 4-link design but did not know about any calculators. Thanks for that. 60's and coilovers are the next big project I have in mind for my JKU. Thanks for the replies so far.
I'll have to get the details but a guy in our club runs custom triangulated four links with coilovers on his jk and a rear dana 60. Along with some other goodies like a rubicon t-case and rubicrawler plus sticky maxxis creepy crawlers etc.
I have 2 key fobs with remote start, but yesterday while out in the Jeep I almost lost the one I was carrying in the woods. By a stroke of luck, I found it. It had fallen out my pocket.
Now I'm thinking I need a third key fob or third key. I'm trying to figure out if I should get a fob or just a...
Not sure if this belongs here or in modified tech, so here goes. I just ordered a new pair of sliders from VKS fab that are frame mounted and can be either drilled or welded. After talking to Vick at VKS I decided to weld because I was under the impression that it would provide better overall...
I was wondering: some Wrangler JK online retailers say "with air conditioning".
Does it mean that there are two different serpentine belts? Will that one work if a Wrangler JK doesn't have A/C?
It's a bit confusing.
Engine light came on. It started to idle rough. I got code P0301. Took it to stealership since it is under the powertrain warranty and they told me it is not covered. Does anyone have any advice on where to learn on how to change fuel injectors?
Thanks in advance!

I have a 2014 automatic unlimited rubicon with a teraflex 3" full 8 flexarm lift kit, 35" tires and I am going to install Yukon 4.88 R&P.
Should I install a transmission cooler. I have been reading some threads regarding an over heating problem. And if so, any recommendations?
