    Damn, that's even more impressive, especially with the down travel. I actually haven't looked under mine yet like that to see if there is exhaust/cross member in the way like on a JK

    This is correct. Even the rear sway bar drop brackets come with tabs for limiting straps. The amount of travel you get with this kit is unreal especially being that you can still run it at a low stance.



    So glad you enjoyed the video and yes, if having Off Road Evolution do the work for you is an option, I would highly recommend it if only because you can be sure they will do excellent work.
    I agree, its the only way I'd have it done, strictly by them. Just wish they were a lot closer. My wife is very happy with them where they are, hahahaha

    Long travel coilovers with that much articulation and stock driveshafts. How is he not hitting anything on flex?

    Video is sick BTW. I can never remember which threads I post what on. Lol.

    Beats the hell out of me. I was surprised to hear him say as much too. Maybe he is or it could be he's set his track bars to push his axles out.

    My OE rear drive shaft is chewing up my gas tank skid. Going to have to do something about it soon.

    Same here. We pushed the track bar over a bit but I still rub pretty good when Iím twisted up. Time to upgrade.

    Would you get the same travel numbers with shock and coil vs the coil overs (EVO pro system vs evo spec king shocks and springs..)? I know the benefits of dual rate coils etc just curious if it would help the travel numbers as well. Trying to plan out my suspension build so I don't do things twice..or three times haha

    Coil overs would be the bees knees but another 3K on to the build total may have to wait a while.

    Travel is dependent on shock or coilover length. In other words, you could only get this much travel from the EVO spec King coilovers. And, I should note that say EVO spec because they are made specifically for them and with features that allow for the amount of travel that they provide.
