I am starting down the path of coilers for my TJ.
I have seen the 'kits' for outboardinf the rear coilovers into the frame, like Genrights as an example.
Has anyone seen, or have pictures of using the frame tie-in for a roll cage instead of using the 'kits' that are out there?
I figure I already have the tube there, why not incorporate it some how..
Thank you for any help ahead of time..

Trevin has his set up like that. Send him a message if he doesn't reply. Also Gerald's Jeep that Gary bought was like that.

Keep in mind that would be a falling rate for both spring and valving. Not ideal, but understand many people want to keep under the tub.

Thanks Paul. I've done a few different setups with the coilover attached to or near the cage tie in. My latest mount sandwhiches the tub with a flat mount undermeath the tub for the coilover and a flat mount with a tube to the cage above the tub.

I'll see if I can snag a few pics from my build thread or take a few new ones for you.

Here's the lower part of the mount. I need to take a few pics of the upper mount. I also had a version that went through the tube but I wouldn't recommend that style. Makes it extremely difficult to remove the shock.

1/4-20 hardware, sandwhiches the tub. Plenty strong.

I like that idea, gets me thinking.
Have you had the rear tire rub on the coils during flex at all or is there plenty of room?
Did you have to notch the frame at all?
I'm running a rock jock 60 with 63 ½ inches WMS to WMS. The wheels are offset 5'ish inches with 35x12.5's, trying to figure out if I have enough room to do the same.

The rear tires rub slightly. I am 63" WMS, I can't recall my BS but it's about 3.25" IIRC. My frame is notched and you would need to as well. You can move the mounts inboard more and not rub. I have +14" of travel so I had to make sure I didn't get the CO into the frame.

I've seen guys notch the frame with the CO tower built in and I like that approach.

You will definitely have to notch your frame, or run a tower set into the frame. And your 5 inch BS may be an issue.
