In our previous installment of the buildup of our '97 Jeep Project Teal-J, we improved its capability on nasty trails by swapping in an Atlas II transfer case from Advance Adapters. This month, we decided to help keep the Teal-J's tires on the ground by installing a flexible suspension.

When our TJ was first built, there weren't many suspension systems available for it, but now lots of companies have TJ kits. One that was introduced recently that caught our eye was the Fabtech 6-inch long-arm suspension kit. Fabtech has its roots in desert racing and has always built strong stuff, so we were interested to see the company's take on a Jeep suspension. Plus, we knew that it was time to try out a long-arm kit on a TJ.

So once a kit was available, we drove to Fabtech and followed along as a much more flexible suspension was grafted onto our Teal-J. What follows are the highlights of the installation.
