    What's really crazy is that this isn't even everything. We could have flexed it out more but we were seeing considerable rubbing issues that need to be addressed.
    Well, now weíre gettin to the good stuff! As you know, Iíve been waiting for you to make the sacrificial leap. Lol.

    Jet looks great and look forward to hearing more about this set up. How the LA kit took advantage of previous suspension mods youíve been tinkering with. Or what all you replaced.

    Also looking forward to your solution on the issues discovered.

    I hope to get a lift on the JL and back out wheeling with you guys before another year passes. Ha Ha.

    LOL! Hoping to get them both out sooner than later but JET definitely has the advantage on flex.
    You must be kidding! Moby has some crazy flex (thinking of carnage canyon in the past)

    But you do bring up a good point about install time, that alone for the arms will add up, I plan to tackle that project myself down the road so well see if can learn to weld from my dad by then.

    Im sure you'd love the 2.5 kings with plush rides, but man look at all the CO flex!

    Who knows....maybe Iíll still end up with Rancho??? I know a guy who might have that lift lying around now.

    Iím curious to know how much flex would be lost between the COs and the 2.5s??

    Yea I'd be interested in seeing the difference too. It wasn't that much in the JK world. But sounds like these JL ones might get more than a DTD

    Super jealous.... Looks like it works great.

    Did you use the EVO spring rates or did you customize? Also curious what the options are with the rear sway bar links since I have the same wheel and tire package as you.

    We were able to keep the Synergy Steering system and Rancho rear track bar. EVO has a front track bar that comes with the kit and so we just installed it. Otherwise, everything pretty much got replaced.

    Otherwise, new wheels with less back spacing will be needed.

    MOBY has 14" of travel and JET now has 15"

    It's not just the flex, the ride quality of the EVO coilovers and long arms is far superior.

    More travel for sure and the coilovers are 2.5's. However, the addition of triple bypass shocks on Moby still make him faster.

    We just used what came from EVO. Always best to start there and so far, I think it's a good fit for us.
