    Default Lowrider Rubicon

    Well, we had a customer come in with an '06 Rubicon and he wanted it airbagged and be able to tuck 18s. So, here are some pics from initial mock-up








    We've got the front and rear 4-links done and the airbag mounts mocked into place. This was the first cycle of the system to see if everything was going to work alright. Preliminary measurements are 24"s to the bottom of the fender flare.

    LOL! Ok, but how do you really feel??
    Rest assured the above pics were staged and no Jeeps were harmed

    The owner is in the Navy and gets home tomorrow. He will be coming to get his Jeep in a few days, when we are done with his lift, gear, flat fender and stinger install. I sent these to him on the ship with verbage along the lines of "your lowering is almost done and you will damn near be able to lay frame, yada yada yada" I can only laugh that much harder if his reaction is anything like yours!

    If it can't be fixed with 100 MPH tape, 550 cord, zip strips, and a hammer it can't be fixed

    Damn Rob...you can't do stuff like that to an old man like me Bro! You ought to shave fifty off of that new stinger I want for undue pain and suffering!

    If you were surprised/upset, how do you think the owner took it? I haven't let him off the hook yet...

    I don't like it!
    This is what a Jeep should look like as a low rider!

    Or this!
