View Full Version : WJ Coil over 7" long arm
22-08-2011, 11:14 AM
Hi Guy's, I'm not often on a computer so I have posted my build throughout and it's been a hell of a process, but I thought it may interest a few of you. This is partially Iron Rock Offroad and there has been A LOT! off custom one off trial and error parts (suspension/steering). The specs initially are IRO 6.5" high clearance long arm JK Locked and Trussed axle package. I have then upgraded to large adjustable Tough Dog 12" travel shocks and re-set the springs yet still not happy went to a full Fox Racing remote resevior coil over which are set approx 4" into the engine bay. Massive amounts of clearencing and now know rubbing with 315/75/16 at full articulation:) Custom 6mm rock rails and purchased front/rear steel bars (USA Vendor was a tool, wouldn't recommend). They have been modified and braced extensively + a 7" Pioneer with offroad mapping programme and a 2way. Oh Yea and a 242HD which I just Broke! Pulling it out tomorrow to inspect, seem to have stripped a part in low range. The list goes on.....

Here's some under shots. general long arm and diffs are IRO theres been a 6" fuel tank lift and the steering is all custom as well as rock rails.
If anyone needs advise feel free to request it as I have done some serious forum reaserch throughout the build and now it's unchartered water and is all custom from hear on in. everything I have purchased has been from USA. There has been massive amounts of cutting and hammering to achieve the clearance i required.

Awesome looking WJ there!! So hows it drive on the black stuff?

Handles surprisingly well. I'm upping the shock oil rate in the coil overs which shoud help but there's no bump steer and it doesn't pull under hard brake but there's still fine tunning to be done. There's also very little vibration but the front caster is out a little to help with DS angle even with the double carden joint.

Man this WJ is awesome! I always wanted to long arm my WJ when I had one.
Where are you located? From the pics it looks like you're wheeling in the Gnangara Pines, which is not far from my house.?
