    At full droop there is 5" of the 8" of total spline length exposed. Sitting at ride height 3" of splines are exosed.

    Typically you are correct, but look at his suspension arms. They are longer than the driveshaft.

    On our JKs the control arms are shorter than the driveshaft, so as the axle droops, the driveshaft shortens.

    With arms longer than the driveshaft, the axle moves on a wider arc than the driveshaft, causing it to stretch out.

    That's why I brought it up.

    Lol. Geometry for the win. I didn't notice or even think about the length of the arms.

    Did some painting on the roll cage and made some supports for the cowl.

    Pulled a dent out of the front bumper and capped the ends off. Made a grill support that won't interfere with the coilovers. Started fixing the hole in the fire wall where the cage transitions into the shock hoops.

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.
