I'm running 16" airshocks and the driveshaft is perfectly inline with 4" uptravel.  I didn't do the math but my guess it will bind at full droop.  I'll check it when I get the lower link done.  But, I planned on using a center strap or suckdown with the airshocks anyway.  It'll work out nicely with the center drop diff!

I'm running the H233b up front.  It already has 4.9's.  6.5's would be nice, though.  I want a lower crawl ratio but I don't want to spend 3g's on an atlas only to get 5to1.  It would be cheaper to go to a 9" front and run 6.5's, which would put me at about the same crawl ratio as a 5to1 atlas.  And, I don't want to run the NFW double since my DS is already so short.  I'll just run what I got for now.

I thought you already had a case with crawlers in it, or did that go away in the other buggy?

I bought my old Tx10 with the calmini gears in it back from Jason.  But, it still would be nice if I had a lower crawl ratio.  If I had 6.5's in the diffs or 5.4 in the t-case that would put me around 100-1 total crawl ratio.  Now, I have 74-1.

Too much!  Exhaust, brake lines, throttle pedel, fuel and coolant reservoirs, wiring & switch panel, skid plates, and I want to build a truss for the front axle.
