Are you out of your mind...... Move that strap end into the pocket and onto the axle not the body of the jeep..... First off that is unsafe and second that puts alot of stress onto your shocks if you crank them down hard........


You have enough bad luck...... you definitely dont need to take that chance.....

I agree with the pocket. It was pouring down rain when I was strapping it down, plan on changing it in the morning. But I do not agree with the axle. I have towed it this way ever since I started towing it and it seems the most stable. With the lift and NO sway bars it keeps the body from rolling around. I tried it with the axles and did not like the results. When my tax money comes in I am going to get some axle straps and then do both. Overkill? maybe but I def want the body not to sway.

Its your rig...

the body sway cant hurt you as much as when you hit a bump and the springs compress and release those clips off the pockets..

Get the straps with built in axle wraps.. Then when you stap down the axles if you are worried about body sway put the winch line down to the trailer and cinch it down.. I used to do that with the XJ and the air shocks.. If it worked on that it will work on anything.. It was a swaying biatch..

Make sure you crank those straps if you leave it that way and check them after they get wet...........



Also remind me never to follow you to Rausch...... lol!

Read the thread.......at the other forum. Half the people for axle attachment, half not.

Sat and watched people coming/going at to RC. Same story. Matter of preference it seems.



Oh, a leaf spring (or whatever the hell it is) on the trailer busted on I-83 coming home and took out a trailer tire! hahahaaaa The luck! But it happened a few miles from our buddy's house. NICE. Good time today regardless. Wish you'd gone.

Definitely a preference but after tons of threads on tons of forums the only thing that is scary is when someone attachs to the body with the slide hooks. Any compression allows them to slide off the hook point..

If you have the axle wraps and the hooks that lock closed its not as big of a deal...........


As to the half the people doing it wrong... We found out that more than half the people in the voting community did the wrong thing too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol!

A lot of racers tie the frame down to compress the the shocks to keep them from cycling and heating up. I tie to the axle and don't see it as being an issue, to each their own . No big deal on tie down points. But using open hooks to tie a vehicle down is just asking for trouble sooner or later. You could never compress the suspension enough with just a strap to keep it from traveling. I've seen a number of people come it to Rausch with open hook straps. For the money we spend on this hobby there is no excuse for cheaping out on a set of straps. You can pickup a good set of 4 for as little as $100. Okay I'm off my soap box.

Yeah they have a bunch of stuff in the office for sale like that now. Tie Rods and other parts that break. I talked to bruce this morning and he needs to order them, only one or two at the park but will have them by RC Rocks or RCQ for me. Prices looked good too, as good as I could find online.
