We have another winner of the Barnes 4x4 Upgrade Challenge! This month, the lucky fabricator is Brandon. Take a look at his custom Jeep TJ truck:
The Off-Road Parts Added
Here is a before picture of Brandon’s TJ stripped down and ready for some custom upgrades:
To get his rig road-ready, Brandon focused on his rear suspension system. He decided to go with a leaf spring setup using Barnes 4wd leaf spring shackle hangers, leaf spring shackles, and anti-wrap leaf spring perches. A leaf spring suspension is a great addition to any rig: It’s fairly easy to install, affordable, customizable, and strong. The hangers create a balanced load distribution, the shackles provide some lift, and the anti-wrap perches are added to reduce the risk of axle wrap.
The Result: A Rear Leaf Spring Suspension
Brandon is very happy with the results from his new suspension. When we asked him how everything worked, he said, “Great! The upgrades turned my TJ into a rear leaf truck!” We look forward to seeing what Brandon’s next projects will be!
