Ok I called that Herrell bug parts and he said that a 4" narrowed will not without doing body mods. He will built me a 3" with my beam for $400.

He is right if you want to run shocks. But if you are not going to run shocks then you can go as narrow as want with no body mods.

Give Clinton a call at Moon Engineering, he can take care of what you want for probably less than Lindy.

No problem. He does good work and I thought he would be cheaper.

300 is good for a ball joint. They are a pain in the butt. I say go for it!

the ride is fine , i think... your shock wont bottom out... which is not fun. The tension on the spings makes a shock of it self in a way.
