Take a look at how Donavin transformed his Jeep LJ into an off-road machine:
Adding Custom Jeep Bumpers, Shock Brackets, and More
Donavin added a TJ-LJ Stubby Bumper with Bull Bar to the front of his Wrangler. This bumper is designed to provide high clearance and protection, without getting in the way. It looks pretty impressive too.
He also upgraded his Frame Shock Towers and Frenched Shock Towers. Upgrading frame towers and frenched towers helps fabricators outboard their shocks for maximized performance potential. These towers can also be modified for the perfect length and ride height.
On the axle, Donavin upgraded his bracketry with Bent & Curved Axle Shock Brackets (bent for added strength and curved for added clearance), Behind the Axle Shock Brackets (that prevent shock binding and allow you to run longer shocks), and 10 degree Axle Link Mount Brackets (minimal tubing needed; adjustable; keep suspension joint close to the axle).
The Results from Donavin’s 4x4 Upgrades
These upgrades helped Donavin get his rig where he needed it to be: “I was able to mount my coil-overs for the ultimate flex. No worries about breaking or bending the brackets from Barnes – high quality products. The stubby bumper finished off my build with the ability to mount a winch and not rub those 40's when fully turned.”
