I'm really sorry but ^ is as much as I'm willing to get into at this time.

@ENFORCER I will answer your question above and also this question here more in depth down the road when all the testing and group buy starts cool.

I really apologize I just want to get as most done and tested instead of just having all kinds of false claims out. I'm 100% sure we will have everything down on paper before we start flapping at the mouth like others do. Things are still changing it's just too early hope you understand when we put our facts out they will all be backed up.

Again I really apologize but I want to keep as much of the technical stuff under wraps before we see a copy

I have shipped a lot to Aussy you guys have been a huge support I'm truly thankful it means a lot!!!

What I think we need to do a large USA and Aussy Group Buy same Page split groups a USA Group and an Aussy. Group and coordinate a drop off location for you guys. I feel this is where we are really gonna save a lot of coin for everyone and time for us sound good?

We can pan out who it will be to do the coordination here in this thread if everyone likes so we don't clutter up the group buy thread with a lot of changed plans from one person to another that way when the group buy starts we already know who and where they are going how does this sound?

Re: Sneak peek new part!!!!!

This strut really is beautiful, and would be a great addition to any WK2 SRT, but does it add anything to stiffness and handling? My 2006 SRT with rear axle does have a strut as OEM, but my 2012 SRT with four wheel independent suspension does not have a strut. I read somewhere that because of geometry, physics, flex and all that Newtonian stuff, the forces do not exist that have to be counteracted with a strut. That why Jeep did not provide one. Could someone please explain the need for one now. I'm not trying to be difficult, I'd just like to know. Thanks.

Good Question not difficult at all I understand completely we will be testing and showing all the proof weather it be a fully functional part or a performance part and make that very clear no smoke and mirrors here.

IMO and my engineers opinion we firmly believe their IS strut flex in the front of the truck since most are "not stock any more" I will get more in depth of what that means below but hey lets face it even we will not be able to tell until we see the proof.

We have a few methods of testing this that we plan on instilling in the tests.

On another note their are a lot of OEM's that say things are not needed from the factory but as we raise HP things are 110% needed. OEM parts may be not be needed as tested on the engineering side at the factory but as things change the overall dynamics of the Jeep changes.

Ex. Lets look at the Position of the OEM rear Swey bar after lowering this is why we initially developed the Endlinks shorter to put it back to OEM position and to stiffen things up a bit more. So where they needed at the OEM Level not necessarily but we went and changed things up on the truck.

We are building a better suspension with all the Parts combined and with added HP I'm 100% sure we will defiantly notice a really solid Driver without loosing the comfort of the Truck this is our goal.

More to come progress is being made on all fronts of this project and the New Cold Air intake.


OH
I noticed a comment after typing all of the above that I'm kinda confused by unless I misunderstood the question I will explain how I understood it cool? And please correct me if I misunderstood you incorrectly cool?

The Front of the 06-10 had a Strut spring setup in the front same as the 2012+ and a Separate Spring Perch and Strut in the rear. We developed the BC Racing Coliovers for 3 years with BC Racing for that truck and know that suspension better than anyone unfortunately LOL.

This brings us back to the stiffing of top of the front strut towers they will flex in the front same setup as the 05-10 even if they don't at the OEM level we are sure they will be needed later (Explained Above)

Yes I agree there will be less flex on the rear independent rear when compared to the 06-10 yes you are correct.

I have coordinated a couple of group buys from the US now so im happy to do so again, unless someone else REALLY wants to do it lol.

I understand it's hard to say but if you can give us even a ball park price that would be really helpful, like is it $200 - $300 or more? And an ETA for availability?

Sounds good and I really can't quote as the aluminum, mold costs and casting numbers are still being discussed. We will probably do a Group buy with price breaks as we get from the MFG's ya know. We are sure they will be over 200.00 honestly. We have a bunch planned so please let me lay out the group buy with every option we will offer cool? We have some really neat plans for this and I think everyone will really like this part with what we are gonna offer when done gonna be a first of it's kind for the Jeep market.

Oh Please Everyone has to remember here we are 100% Built and MFG in The U.S.A. with U.S.A. Materials and workers and will not sacrifice this for a cheaper price.

Re: Sneak peek new part!!!!!

Any chance you can get one to me in Europe before August 23rd? I'm going to autocross my truck that day (if they allow me)... (j/k)

More seriously, this looks great, I am more than interested
