I have an Old Man Emu 2.5 inch lift, in my CJ.

This is an Australian company making the kit and is really meant for a YJ. The difference is the front spring is a little wider, so the front spring bracket has to be replaced (two bolts). The front spring bracket also has to be moved one set of hole further out on the frame as the YJ springs are also longer.

The ride is smoother than the old stock springs

Thanks, I also took a pics of the Wrangler buried in the 3 foot drift in that Gillette rv park. I didn't realize it drifted that deep right there. They cleared the rv park with a front end loader.

Thanks, they're pretty cool. If I could build myself any toad, it would be a crew cab FC.

The 2 you see in my photo are dual rear wheel 1 tons.

Yes I knew that, Chrysler also did that, in fact most everybody did in the beginning, The reason is that as you drive the nuts tend to work either loose or tight depending on the direction of tire rotation,, IF, they are all right hand thread.. So they used Left hand threads on one side so the nuts self tightened.

Way better than chasing your wheel down the freeway.

But today.. I guess little things like that have given way to reduced inventory (Why carry two different lug nuts when you can make more profit by using the same nut on both sides)

oh well...
Though the love of it roots evil
Still theres those who seem to feel though
That ALMIGHTY GODs A DOLLAR (hold single up while singing this line)
And theres not enough for me.

Give me that old time religion (x3)
it's good enough for me.

Here is my baby. I am always careful not to scratch it. The tires are at 12 psi and there are no stabilizers. It seems to wander a bit on the pavement but for the John Bull it is great.

Wow Forest Grump... way cool. Never saw a Jeep Woodie before. Love the plantation style drivers window. Who needs stabilizers when you've got good grain.

I'll take you up on that if you can get to where I go?

I meant LJ by the way. Hard to type on my phone.
I do love the CJ's had one with the 304 if I remember right? Ran great, rode stiff. Love Jeeps

This is our current Jeep stable. 2000 TJ Wrangler, 2012 Jeep Liberty, and 2008 JK Wrangler Unlimited. It has been a long hard winter here in central Indiana and as always the Jeeps have earned their keep.
