Default Kincer's new Jeep

Picked this up on Rcc a few weeks back, this is how it sat, way too high in my opinion.



This has a custom steel chassis, four linked front and rear, had 90mm shocks, now has 80mm TF2 shocks all around. TLT axles, Axial trans., Integy 35t motor, Castle SV3 esc. Things I gotta do are install rear lockouts, alum chubs and high clearance knuckles, cms servo and shave the drive cups for a little more steering. Tires are 1.55 Pitbull Growlers with 1.9 unknown alum wheels. I worked pretty much all day tinkering with shocks, springs, and configurations to get the height and stance it's at now. Need opinions, does it look good as it sits?

Well it's been long day and I contemplated working on something all morning, decided to work on the YJ for some mental therapy. I reworked the rear links, installed the Dinky four link mount, and installed the rear lockouts and got rid of all that linkage and knuckles, also messed with the ride height with the axle centered in wheel wells. I think I nailed it




Got the aluminum chubs and high steer knuckles installed, put my Bluebird 200oz waterproof servo on and shaved a little off the drive cups.

has a very clean/nice....... dailey driver/street look to it. something you might see a teenager driving or maybe even seen sitting in the local high school/college parking lot.

very nice looking addition to any scale collection
