i saw rex at the vendors show in moab at ejs this year! definatley an amazing build buddy. ! great job
No worries. Drives really well. I've had it up to 100mph. Stable, no vibration, no bump steer, no wobble. The 43's made a big difference on belly clearance. So with a 4" lift on 43's I could do the Rock Pile in Pritchett without bottoming. With 4" lift and 41" I bottomed a lot. I'm liking where it's at. That TnT suspension, and steering setup work well.Thanks for the info Pat
How well does it do with your 43s?
(Sorry to detract from your build)
When TnT got it, it had a broken Terraflex 6" lift with 41's (The rear control arms broke off the frame. Bob from TnT found me on the trail and told be he could build something that I can't break, then he had folk from his shop come down to Wheeler Lake trail head area and they hauled my jeep to his shop while my kids and I went wheeling with him and the folks from JKCrawlers for the weekend.), a Poison Spider front bumper, a HD Customs Switchblade (i was doing testing for Jarrett) with a 41" IROK on it, a full set of rock hard belly armor, fab four sliders, a tuffy security drawer, a full rear seat. Overall weight: about 7200 lbs empty. I was breaking stuff right and left. Also my hemi would get wicked hot running up steep grades. Also the DD ride was not good. Bump steer, sway, etc.Can you detail some of the weight reduction process that happened? What Rex had, what was changed to what, weight savings, etc? Lighter weight rigs are becoming of much greater interest to me as of late.
maybe the answer is to just drive better...I was breaking stuff right and left....
Truth on both counts. I like to go fast in rocks. TnT: "Pat Proof" :bounce:maybe the answer is to just drive better
what an awesome rig/setup...T&T did some awesome work!
I love this pic! I haven't seen to many stretched JK 4 doors.The wheel base was stretched to 121" given better departure and approach.
