    IIRC JL Rubicon axles are only 0.5" shorter than full width axles, 68.0" vs 68.5". Maybe something will be coming coming down the pike?

    We just installed air bumps up front.

    I would definitely be nice if we could have installed air bumps in the rear and for the reason you stated. Hopefully soon in the future.

    What doubletapdaddy said, the Rubicon axles are essentially full width now and I would imagine that it could be done. It's something we want to do eventually. Doing the fronts was just super easy to do while we were at things.

    LOL - "frenching" in a frame refers to cutting a notch out of it on one side and then welding in something else so that it sits part way in the frame itself. In the case of an air bump, you would weld in a tube so that only half of it would stick out of the frame and that would allow you to install the air bump in it. This allows the frame to still be strong and allow you to run an air bump without robbing you of clearance next to your tires.

    LOL great I could give you a little laugh. Thank you for the explanation, Eddie! I have seen this kind of install before but was not used to this phrase. Maybe translation tools need to be improved slightly.
    its a cool thing to build that in. I am looking forward to see air bumps installed in the rear, no matter how its done exactly
