    LOL, I think I might have to - I don't think I'm getting anything else

    I went through the last 8 pages or so of the thread but didn’t see it. Are you doing a specific kit or putting your own brew together?

    I wish I hadn't gone thru this thread...

    I thought I would sell my JK but now having 2nd thoughts. Hard to start over completely when I could just upgrade

    The JL may not get anything done to it until more product options come out next year.

    It's these Synergy mounts for the front: https://www.synergymfg.com/synergy-j...rsion-kit.html
    Getting the front coilovers through Bubba - he ordered a custom King valving & spring setup from Accutune

    The rear is a set of used ORE valved Kings and EVO mounts I got great deal on. Those are the ones in the pics - I sent those to him for a rebuild.

    I already have the EVO long arm kit installed but with the older rear mounts that hang down from the frame. I'm installing the high clearance mounts so I quit dragging on everything.

    On my Trail Ready wheels, I left the washers off last time. That leaves the bolt flush instead of sticking out rubbing on shit.

    My only knock on them is the ring being thinner than the others out there. It seems strong enough, I just wish there was more protection for the bolts.

    When I dismounted my tires, I had to hammer the socket on probably over a quarter of the bolts.

    That was my only concern with these wheels. What tires are you running? Did you have to use the spacers between the wheel and ring?

    Curious, what made you go that route upfront as opposed to the Evo bolt ons?

    Went back and forth on this with Bubba. Honestly after he suggested I look at the Synergy I really liked the clean look of the weld on mounts - both on the frame and axle sides.. I'm not worried about going back to coils and I like the fact that these are made specifically to be welded on. Honestly the EVO's would have been easier because I could have done those myself. Now I have to get these installed. Oh well.

    Fair enough! I imagine it will have a similar look to the DTD without the bypass shock. The only thing that I think would push me towards the Bolt On CO is that it allows you to run 2.5s.

    Does DTD not allow you to run a 2.5? Cause that’s what I’m running. 2.5 coilover and 3.0 bypass.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
