    I've seen inconsistent backspacing requirements for their JL coilover kits, so I'm not sure what they really are. Will you be able to keep your 4.75" backspace wheels, or will you have to replace them?

    I don't have my JL yet, but I'm making plans to pull the trigger on all the parts for when I place the JL order. I live right around the corner from EVO, so that's convenient!

    For now, the plan is to run what we have with wheel spacers. We will most likely find a replacement set of wheels with 3.5" of back spacing. That's what you really need.

    Thanks for confirming. Though one spec was 3.75" backspacing, so I guess that makes it easy for you to just run 1" spacers. I haven't seen too many (if any?) 3.75" backspace wheels, so I could see picking a nice 3.5" bs wheel should be easy.

    Kind of a bummer, as I know it would be nice to keep that increased backspacing (as I would as well).

    So my next question...and what I've been debating, is will you be going with 68.5 Dynatrac axles keeping the 3.5" backspace or go to 72.5 axles with 5.5" bs? How close is the end of the Dynatrac hub face to the face of a typical 8.5" wheel with a 5.5" bs? I can't tell you how many hours I've been contemplating these options.

    Crazy how much travel you get with these coil overs. From what I read you have to run limit straps if you don't run long arms. Awesome job and choice on your lift! Looking awesome

    WOW, amazing how fast that can be done, especially with the right people. I'm impressed with the quality of the workmanship too. Can't wait to see part 2.

    Thanks as always, you and Cindy make great video's.

    Awesome to see "Jet's Evolution"! Just curious: 1) how many hours did it take for the guys to complete the work? 2) does Off Road Evolution charge a flat labor rate per install or an hourly labor charge? Trying to get an idea of what it would cost an average Jane, like me. As always, thanks for the AWESOME content!
