Working on buying a blown up 02 liberty. If I can get it accomplished I'm going to get the sky manufacturing kit which uses a 31.5 spring width. I will be going with full width ih scout axles and build a 4 link setup for the rear. Tell me your thoughts and opinions on this. I know I could do coils up front but I'm really a fan of leafsprings. I will be using a custom built set of springs using bravada and s10 springs like I used on my sas s10.

Waiting on the guy to call me back first. Hopefully in the next week he will call and I'll be starting immediately.

Is the one you are going to build also a crd? or a gasser? any motor swap plans as well or just a junk yard replacement? I've been eyeballing a 4.3L chev swap for some time as soon as the 3.7L goes that's what will be dropped in mine likely a pretty healthy 4.3L tho one of my buddies has a good recipe of parts for a N/A low rpm big torque setup.

It will be soa full width d60 and 14 bolt. Disc brakes. The one I am looking at is crd with bad motor. I have a 4bt in the garage that will probably find a home in it. I will be running 5.13 gears and planning 35X14.50 Baja claws

I looked at the 4BT obtion and 4BD1 as well but both are too tall to fit, you may find more room doing a SOA with the 1 tons. Sounds like it's gonna be big? maybe bigger tires are in store? This one is on 37's viewtopic.php?f=73&t=66919
