    Longer driveshafts, spring perches, more than likely new shock mounts

    Wow...singling out me and Dan...now I have to be a smartass.

    So, won't a taller suspension kill the cornering of those Zrated tires? I'm sensing no repeat on winning the obstacle course next year. :steer:

    I have extra streering u-joints/rag joints and some 3/4" round stock left over from my conversion. If you want them to see if they will work for yours, come and get them.

    Let me know when and where your wrenching weekend is. I can picture a friday night "Strip it Apart" get together and a Sat and sunday build.

    You helped me with mine so I will return the favor.

    I think I have an extra set of FJ60 rear springs if you want to do what Megolfer did on his rig.

    Look for a Flaming River/ Borgeson steering shaft. AA sell a kit so you can get away from the Rage joint on the steering.

    Dan "Gravel Maker" here on MUD owns Ruff Stuff and has the spring perches.

    Just the perches from ruff stuff will be aroun $60. I just picked up a set for dehondagod.

    His "KIT" is more expensive but it comes with everything you need and a few things you don't.

    I have the nonshackle frame mount spring hangers from Ruff-Stuff that I will not need for widening my springs. Cost me 45 bucks to my door, if you want, give me 30 and I will be happy. Thier online price says 10 each, but he said they were 15 when I ordered.

    Let me know pretty fast. I will be sending them back this week for a refund. (just have 2 of them)

    That's a good price when it is all said and done. You have to figure about another 150 in misc. fluids, lube, pads, etc and about 50 hours in labor.
